Ok friends, this is probably the boldest post I've posted in a long time, maybe ever.

This is Lucia. She is at Canaan Orphanage in Haiti and we believe she belongs in our family.

Please please pray fervently with us for God to be in the details. That's all I will say for now. He has a plan for her.

::This is a blog post from some friends of ours who are caring for her::

Today is a special day for us as we celebrate Lucia’s 7 month birthday! This precious child is such a blessing to us here at Canaan. Everybody loves her huge smile and joyful giggle!! Marcus and I couldn’t have a more blessed time with her! I wanted to give you all a little update on her!

She sits up on her own - a little wobbly, but she’s getting the hang of it.

Rolling over is old time news....she rolls with the best of them, getting too fast for us, we really have to watch where we lay her!

Big news!! She’s getting two new bottom teeth coming in! In Creole, “L’ap fe dan”! Along with that comes diarrhea and little fevers or outbursts of tears, but she’s a trooper!

She loves to mimic her ‘bodily functional noises’ and is getting quite good at it!

She likes carrots - avocados are on the menu next for this upcoming week!!

Honestly today don’t have her exact weight, but a couple weeks ago she was at 13.6 pounds. I’d say she’s at a good 14 - 14.5 pounds now!!! She’s becoming our little chunker!! :) In fact, take a look at the two pics below. The first one taken March 17 and the second one taken today!!

Please keep praying for this precious baby girl! And us too at Canaan as we are seeking God’s wisdom and direction for her life!
