Answered Prayer!!!

We are rejoicing today, because God answered our prayers for our little girl. I shared here about the 24 hours of prayer for Mia. From Monday at noon until Tuesday at noon family, friends, and friends of friends were in constant prayer for Mia to be moved to Hannah's Hope. We were so encouraged during this time and never doubted that God heard every prayer.

This morning I received this e-mail from my sweet friend Sarah, who is was in Ethiopia this week: MEREDITH!!!! SHE IS HERE!!! AT HANNAHS HOPE!!! Her documents were finished today and I got to watch her walk into Hannahs Hope! Can you believe it?!?!?! It is a miracle! And i got to be here to witness it!

Tears were streaming down my face as I read these wonderful words. I am so, incredibly thankful to all of you who have been praying for our daughter. I just know that the Lord wanted you all to be apart of her story, the beautiful story He is writing.

We also received 2 new pictures of her today. We have not received any since August, so this was quite a treasure for us.

We are very thankful on this eve of Thanksgiving. We praise the Lord, because He heard our prayers and answered them in a mighty way!

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name." Psalm 100:4


  1. Meredith! I read your post, prayed for her right then, but got distracted and didn't leave a comment. I was in tears when I read this....HE IS SO GOOD and I'm so humbled that I got to be apart of interceding for Mia.

    I read this to Travis and he was blown away that not only did God answer but He sent someone you knew to witness her arrival 1st hand.....thank you for sharing!

    Eph 3:20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]--

  2. Oh, Meredith! This is just such awesome news to read!!! We've been praying for your sweet love since August, and wanting so badly for her to have a family (prayer answered), and to be moved to HH (prayer answered again!). We will continue to pray for her, and for you all as she is welcomed into your family.
