(Edit on 9-4-13 at 12:03am: Thank you to those sharing our need to get this adoption funded before her surgery. We still need $3,742 at this moment to be fully funded. I know God is bigger than that amount! These kids were His before He ever set me on the path to go get them and He knew that this surgery was going to fall at this moment too! Keep sharing, praying, and donating because every dollar adds up! THANK YOU!)
Two Weeks from this moment I will be sitting in a CICU (Cardiac Intensive Care Unit) with Aleshia. . . The thought of that makes me SICK. I can't imagine seeing her hooked up to all those machines to keep her alive and with all those tubes draining fluids from her.
Having an extra month because of the surgery being cancelled last time has only made me more scared and sick. This time I know how she reacted last time. I know how scared she is of the hospital and the scrubs. I know how hard it is going to be to make this work. I AM TERRIFIED FOR HER! I HATE SEEING HER LIKE SHE WAS!
We didn't even make it to the surgery and it was horrific!
I can't imagine how we are going to do this. . . how SHE is going to do this.
Her heart requires it, but her mind is terrified of that place. It reminds her of the places she came from. . . OH HOW I WISH I COULD TAKE THIS FROM HER!
Please pray for her and for us!
One thing that would take some of the worry off of our family right now is to just have this adoption funded. I would be so relieved to go into this heart surgery not having to worry about the last bit of adoption expenses. We really just need the last bit of travel expenses. We are needing to raise the last $3,761 of the money that will be required to purchase the plane tickets to get Matthew, Johnathan, and Charity home. We have a HAVE A HEART GIVEAWAY GOING ON RIGHT HERE with 21 Thank You Gifts to thank everyone for helping us. There are entries just for sharing too! Could you help us with this last little bit!?!
We can't stop worrying about Aleshia's surgery. We can't stop worrying about Matthew, Johnathan, and Charity while they wait. We can't stop the worry our kids here will have while they worry about Aleshia or while some of them don't understand why Aleshia is away from them.
We would love to just not have to worry about that last bit of funding to get our kids home, to just KNOW that the ransom is complete and whenever we can pick them up the money is there for the tickets. Can you help us?
You can donate at THIS LINK and really EVERY DOLLAR helps! If everyone chips in to be the hands and feet of God then this mountain of worry will be moved!
