A new Birthmom in Oregon is going to be viewing our profile in the next few weeks, and only one other couple is going to be shown. I'm taking this as an opportunity to pray for a woman who has some very special needs. K is 28 years old and is currently under care for Bipolar Disorder. And she is alone in this situation, there is very little known about the birthfather other than the fact that he is caucasian.
Dear Heavenly Father,
Your name is GREAT and Greatly to be praised! I have been so proud to think that I am deserving of parenthood more than others, I pray you will take from me that haughty nature. I pray you will give us the opportunity to minister to K and to be chosen by her to be the parents of her child. If this is your will, I pray it will be done and if it is not, I pray that you will be our comfort. I pray for the other couple being shown, I pray that they will be prepared for parenthood, and that if it is your will for them to be the parents of K's child, that you will bless them mightily, that your arms will surround them as greatly as they would surround us should it be our turn. Your plan is perfect and we will accept what ever your plan brings.
Thank you for your beautiful work in my life, and how you've changed me through this process, the humility it's taught me. And for the beautiful tender heart you placed in my husband.
Thank you for creating adoption. Thankyou for K. and her brave decision to give her child the gift of life!
Father, thank you for your masterful work in the lives of Rebekah and Ben, and I pray that you will comfort birthmother Rebekah in this difficult time. Please bless their family with the best there is to bless them with.
I will be still and know you are God.
