A day spent in prayer

I am sending out a plea to everyone. I am asking everyone to take some extra time tomorrow Sunday, Nov 13 and go away from all the distractions in life. Maybe to a park, go for a walk, or just sit in the car and lift Blossoms adoption to the Lord. Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father, who sees everything will reward you. Right after church tomorrow which is around 10:30 a.m. pacific time I will get away from everything and spend uninterrupted time with my Father. I know the Lord wants me to bring Blossom home and I know it will be in his time. The things I will be lifting to our Lord and ask if you will also is Patients, patience that I will not be discouraged in my wait. Raising the money needed to begin the home study. I received PA almost a month ago and still have not been able to begin the Home study. I need prayer that the Lord will provide this money through fundraising and just plain old donations. Matthew 18:19 Again I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done by my Father in Heaven. I am trying so hard to get some fundraising ideas together and just have not been successful. Please pray that these ideas will begin to come together and materialize. Prayer that once the funds are available that the home study will be quick and go off without any problems.
I know everyone who has had the experience of adoption knows that waiting is so so hard. It will stretch you until you feel as though you will snap in half. You can begin to question yourself  "am I doing the right thing?" "Is this what God wants?" and question after question will arise. I know that the Lord wants me to bring Blossom into our family and to tell you the truth she already is. This whole experience has taught me that God's people care about this little girl.
I can not explain the feeling of wanting to bring Blossom home. That anguish that she is there just out of my reach. The pain of knowing she will once again go to bed without her mommy to tuck her in and kiss her on the check. The thought of her wondering if she will have a family to tuck her in at night and kiss her on the cheek. The pain that I have missed out on 30 more days of her life, never to regain them. For most of you, you know these feelings you were there at one time. So again I send out a plea to Gods people to take time away from life tomorrow and pray with me to get Blossom home.
Who could resist this smile?
