Dark Horse of the Week Lynda

For I will restore health to you
And heal you of your wounds,' says the LORD,
'Because they called you an outcast saying:
"This is Zion;
No one seeks her."'
Jeremiah 30:17

This week's Dark Horse is 8 year old Lynda!
This little girls information is from 2013 but they say she is a very sweet and kind girl who needs a family so very much.

Lynda has siblings, but none are available for adoption. Her 2 older sisters still live with their birth mother and her 1 younger sister who has already been adopted.

In 2013 a family met her and shared this about her:
"She [Lynda] was in my kids' group. She is the sweetest little thing and needs out of there ASAP!!! She has the most noble and quiet nature about her. She is mentally delayed but has so much potential. She was one of the least favored children in the orphanage and she is desperate for love. 
On one occasion she wandered over to the play shelter where we were playing and was trying to eat our daughter's cookie. We didn't have any extra (we brought treats for the group ever three days or so) so my husband just picked her up to distract her and as soon as he did, she threw her arms around his neck and rested her head on his shoulder just soaking in the attention. I can't bear the thought of her being transferred! She already has it bad enough."

This woman mentioned "transferred", children with mental disabilities like Lynda's are often times transferred from their orphanage to an adult mental facility. These places are not designed for children and the kids usually waste away there receiving little attention. 
Lets reach out to Lynda and love her in prayer!

Please join us in prayer for Lynda!

Dear Father, I thank You for Lynda, and I thank You for revealing her to us.
I ask that Your hand of protection would be upon her now and that You would wrap her in Your love as she waits for her forever family to find her.
Please give her favor in the place that she is in and send people there to love and care for her.
In Jesus Christ' name, amen.

Goodbye Shane

Behold, the LORD's hand is not shortened,
That it cannot save;
Nor His ear heavy,
That it cannot hear.

If you would like to continue in prayer for Shane, we invite you to please do so and if we ever hear news of him again we will gladly post it!

Dear Lord, I thank You for this precious boy.
I thank You for the plans that You have for him.
We release him back to You now.

Dark Horse of the Week Jarrod!

He also brought me out into a broad place;
He delivered me because He delighted in me.
Psalm 18:19

This week's Dark Horse is 3 year old Jarrod! 
Jarrod's nannies say he is generally a pretty active kiddo! He loves being outside - when it is time to play outside he is able to recognize his shoes and will ask his nanny to help put them on.
When he is inside, this boy is fascinated by anything with wheels. He loves to push his toy cars around and he really likes the toy shopping cart!
Jarrod also likes music. His nannies say he will sit very calmly as he listens to the melody.
Little Jarrod can walk steadily on his own, but he is not running quite yet. He can feed himself snacks and though he is not talking yet, he knows to find his nanny when he needs help with something.
Jarrod has Downs Syndrome and needs a forever family who can help him reach his fullest potential in life!

Please join us in prayer for Jarrod!

Dear Father, I thank You for this precious little treasure and I ask that You would bring forth his family soon. I pray that he would have the opportunity to know You and that his life would bring abundance all those he comes into contact with.
In Jesus Christ' name, amen.

The sun and the moon stood still in their habitation;
At the light of Your arrows they went,
