Emma Hope Cornish

Several of you may remember back at the beginning of the year when I asked for prayer for an online friend Meredith and her husband Mike. Well, they were in Ukraine adopting 2 precious children...Emma and Micah. I am pleased to say they have been home now over a month and are doing well. You can click on the picture to the right and it will link you to the Cornish family's adoption blog.

I once again petition you all to please pray for Emma. She was born with Down Syndrome, a major heart defect and a few other issues. Meredith and Mike have had her seen by the specialist here in the states and the caridologists have stated that they dont feel Emma is in a good conidtion for open heart surgery. They are amazed that this angel has lived to be 5 yrs old. I know our God is a God of Hope! HE has a plan for Emma and her whole family. We dont know the time she has left here on earth, but we pray that our Lord will heal her. I pray that our Great Physician will hear the prayers of many warriors and bring healing to Emma. I pray that He will give Mike and Meredith the strength as they have to make some very difficult decisions about which way to go medically for their sweet Emma. Please stand in prayer with all of us for this sweet girl. She is so loved in her home, and by so many across the world....

2 nice people had this to say:
