OUR FAMILY WAS HONESTLY DONE WITH OUR ADOPTION JOURNEY. WE HAD BEEN THROUGH FOUR ADOPTIONS AND WERE STILL REELING FROM THE EXPENSES FROM THEM ALL. OUR YOUNGEST TWO KIDS ARE LIMB DIFFERENCE KIDS AND WE HAVE A HUGE HEART FOR THESE KIDDOS. WE KNOW THAT WORLD, WE KNOW THE DOCTORS AND THERAPISTS, AND WE KNOW HOW TO PARENT A CHILD WITH THESE NEEDS. A FRIEND OF OURS SENT US A MESSAGE VIA FACEBOOK TELLING US OF A BABY GIRL IN INDIA THAT WAS MISSING HER ARMS AND LEGS AND ASKING IF WE CAN HELP FIND A FAMILY. WE PRESENTED THE NEED TO SOME ADOPTING AND PRAYING FRIENDS AND PRAYED OURSELVES THAT HER FAMILY WOULD FIND HER. A FEW MONTHS LATER, THIS SAME FRIEND ASKED US AGAIN ABOUT THIS SWEET BABY GIRL. SOMETHING ABOUT THIS INTERACTION GRABBED MY HEART AND I ASKED TO SEE HER FILE. ONCE I SAW HER VIDEO, I WAS DONE. SHE IS MISSING HER ARMS AND LEGS SIMILAR TO SPEAKER NICK VILICIC. SHE WAS NOT NAMED BY HER HOME COUNTRY BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T DEEM HER WORTHY OF A NAME, BUT SHE IS WORTHY. SHE IS FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE. GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR HER LIFE AND SHE DESERVES A FAMILY FIGHTING TO BRING HER HOME. WE PRAYED THROUGH THIS FILE AND FELT GOD URGING US TO PRESS ON...SO HERE WE ARE. WE HAVE SOME PRESSING FEES THAT NEED TO BE PAID BUT WE AREN'T OPENLY SHARING ABOUT THIS ADOPTION UNTIL WE HAVE A "YES" FROM INDIA. WE ARE PRAYING, LIKE BROTHER ANDREW, THAT GOD, WHO KNOWS OUR NEED AND LOVES THIS GIRL MUCH MORE THAN WE DO, WHO HAS HER BEST INTEREST AT HEART, WILL PROVIDE ABUNDANTLY MORE THAN WE COULD ASK OR IMAGINE, THAT HE'D MOVE EVERY OBSTACLE AND MOUNTAIN TO BRING THIS BABY GIRL HOME. WE'VE NAMED HER NORA RUBY.
