One Little Girl Missing

Mrs. Beaver:

Oksana (left - 8) and Amy (right - 10)
This duo was destined to be a trio. God has ordained the most amazing set of circumstances to join the three as sisters. But we're one little girl short... She's still living in an orphanage in Russia with her three older brothers. So we pray...and pray...and...

I long to wrap my arms around her as she sits in my lap, and rock her gently back and forth as if she'd been mine forever.

I long to brush and stroke her silky, chestnut tresses.

I long to dress her like a princess and release her from the stigma she's faced every day as an orphan.

I long, with all my heart, to teach her about Jesus, and His Father--the God who has adopted me (Gal. 4:5).

I long for my baby to be home...

Praying that the day will come soon for you all to be together!

I'm praying that you'll have her home soon, especially with the recent news.
