We have no communication with his orphanage and it's extremely unlikely that we will. We are 'helpless' humanly-speaking until we are there and can bring him home.
But we are not going on our own here...we are asking you to team up with us and pray. We don't know specifically how to pray for little Taizi so we are asking you to just pray. Pray for his health, pray as we go into the cold months that he stays well. Often these poor orphanages will not use heat and instead will bundle the children up more to survive the cold months. Please pray for him. Pray God holds him in the palm of His hand.
With this new sense of urgency I called our agency today and said that having our first homestudy appointment delayed a few weeks seems extreme when there's such a huge sense of urgency. She called back this morning with a local social worker for us to work with and our first appointment is Thursday morning! Perfect!
On the way home from the accountant's office a bit ago I turned on the radio to hear:
Hold Me Jesus by Rich Mullins.
