My Heart Hurts For This Family
We have had an exciting week with our agency. Many referrals have been given, lots of happy families, we are moving up in line quicker than I expected. Very exciting!!!

While I have been celebrating with all my friends at CHI, my heart has been hurting about this post I came across a few days ago.

This families beautiful little girl was murdered in a home invasion robbery while being cared for by a foster family in Guatemala. The foster parents, there biological children, and little Josi were all murdered. Her family was planning on traveling to bring her home, to be with her forever family, in just a few weeks. They had visited this little girl, bonded with her, prayed for her to come home to them, and then this terrible act of cruelty takes her from them just as they are about to go and bring her home forever.

You can visit Josi's families blog here if you would like. The adoption community is trying to raise money to help this family as they still have to pay $13,000 for her adoption. Please pray for this family as they go through this terrible time in there lives.


Sweet Josi
