Bring Norah Home

Patti Wilhite
Patti Wilhite Nixa, Missouri

Well…Here we go again! The Lord has laid it heavy on both of our hearts to adopt a baby girl from India. Crazy?! Maybe, but heeding to the Lord is our heart’s desire. Wilhite party of 6 we’re coming at you!

Our sweet girl has the same condition as our precious Titus, Thalassemia Major. What is that? Long story short…She’ll require monthly blood transfusions. Getting her home to proper medical care is vital and to the LOVE of her family!

What we need from you? Prayer first and foremost. Financial support. Adoption stretches the finances and it’s the number one reason people choose not to adopt. However, we were fully funded our first go around and that was due to a lot of you who were sensitive to the Lord calling you to do so. We’re asking you to pray about what He’d have you do in partnering with us to bring Norah home.

We love y’all and the encouragement you’ve been to our family. We’re looking forward to bringing baby girl home to her crazy awesome crew!

Jesus never called us to live a life of ease. No, we’re meant to live with reckless abandon and we whole heartedly believe His people are key to ending the orphan crisis!

“Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.” {James 1:27}

Lifesong has gifted our family with a $3,000 matching grant!!! This is HUGE and any donations made to this site or mailed in (details below) apply towards that grant…AND donations are tax deductible!
