He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him;
He also will hear their cry and save them.
This week's Dark Horse is 3 year old Josie!
Josie is a sweet child who enjoys playing with toys and other children.
She attends an on-site English preschool where she is working on improving her fine motor skills. She can identify colors, count to 10, and sing songs both in English and her native language.
She plays well with the other children and has appropriate attachment with her adult caregiver.
Josie is speaking in 3-5 word sentences, primarily in English though she does understand her native language speaking caregiver.
Josie has spina bifida and mild bilateral clubfoot that is improving greatly through casting and the orthopedist doesn't believe that surgical intervention will be required.
She currently crawls and scoots on her bottom to get around. She receives physical therapy 4 times a week where she is working on standing independently, walking with a walker and building her core strength. Josie has diminished feeling below her knees but has been making good progress in physical therapy. She is able to pull to a standing position and often does so throughout the day without prompting. She is making progress walking with the assistance of a walker. She is able to navigate her current home without difficulty. She goes up and down stairs by crawling/scooting and using her upper body strength. Josie is a happy child who loves to laugh and smile.
Please join us in prayer for Josie!
Dear Father, I thank You for this bundle of joy!
I thank You for her precious life and I ask that You would soften the hearts of her family that they would receive with joy this child that You desire to add to their family!
May Your salvation come to her little heart.
In Jesus Christ' name, amen.
