Prayers are needed...

Hey everyone... well the newest drama with the adoption is the increased fees that the agency has recently imposed. Though the need for the increase is vital to the future of the program and I can empathize with the agency, it still hurts for those of us who are so close to travel and already strapped for cash. I just pray that the Lord will provide for all of the families in unexpected ways. I went to the Planned Parenthood this morning for my few hours vigil and I just kept telling the Lord, "look, I want to help, I want to adopt again, and I really want for there to be an end to abortion... but you have to help us. Please put it in more people's hearts to want to adopt and PLEASE make the adoption process easier and less costly. Or provide the necessary funds through agents of your grace"... I was just pleading with him as I was pacing back and forth in front of the clinic. I know that the Lord loves all his children, especially orphans and wants the best for them... I just feel so strongly that I am to be an advocate for these children, but I don't know what to do. I just don't know how to go about it.... so please keep me in your prayers that I may come to know how exactly my role is to be played out so I can take all of this passion and hopefully make it contagious and really provide as is requested in Matthew. I know that "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak"; however, I know many families who are stronger then most and are willing to be warriors for the Lord and will exhaust themselves doing the right thing.
