Prayer Request

I signed up to receive prayer requests for sweet kiddos waiting for their families in China. I got this email from them a couple of days ago, and this little baby completely stole my heart. Look at that sweet smile! And those beautiful eyes! Here's what the email had to say about little Torie:

"Torie was admitted to our Special Care Center in Zhengzhou last June at four months old. She has been diagnosed with a severe congenital heart defect.
Torie is a beautiful little girl who is quick to smile and has an adorable single dimple on her right cheek. She is curious about her surroundings and anxious to be up and moving around, but also enjoys cuddling up with her nanny. Torie celebrated her first birthday in February and we hope she will have the opportunity to celebrate many more.
Torie was recently scheduled for heart surgery, but her condition was deemed inoperable in China due to its severity. However, Dr. Joyce Hill is hopeful that she may have a chance to receive the life-saving procedure she needs if she is adopted. Please join us in prayer for Torie to this end, and for our medical staff to gain wisdom on how to best proceed while she is under our care."

Will you join me in praying for Torie?

Your Blogger,


  1. I will pray for her. Thank you for sharing.

    Also, I was wondering if you've ever read this blog. It's written by a girl with CP who is also an advocate for orphaned children with disabilities.
    I think you would enjoy reading some of her posts; she reminds me of you! You are both amazing individuals. Hugs!

    1. Thank you so much for sharing her blog with me!! I LOVED it and can't wait to read more of her posts. You are pretty amazing yourself! Thank you for your kind words. :)
