Please Pray for Lucy

Will you pray for Lucy? She is an orphan in China waiting for a forever family and has a very serious heart condition. She needs surgery and will most likely need a transplant in the future. Please pray that either a family steps forward soon or that she can come to the US on a medical visa to get the care she needs. Here is a link to this sweetie!!

The adoption community has rallied around this sweet girl, please go here to see about the 24 hours of prayer movement starting on Thursday!

(The following post is from Amy's Blog)

Lucy needs a miracle.

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.
–Psalms 139:13-14

I cannot stand by and do nothing for this child. Like so many others, though, we are not in a position to adopt again right now. But I can pray for her. I can pray for a family to step forward.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we as a community could come together and cover Lucy with prayer for 24 hours? Wouldn’t it be amazing to see what God can do through this child?
Honestly, I don’t know how God will answer our prayers. I don’t know how Lucy’s life will end up. But what I do know is God will not turn his back on Lucy. She is not alone. While we may not understand it, her life has a purpose.
Will you join me on your knees in prayer for Lucy? Will you pray:
That a family will step forward and claim her as their daughter? Will you pray that once the family submits their letter of intent that China and the United States will expedite all their paperwork and they can hold Lucy in record time?
Will you pray for peace for this extraordinary family? Will you pray that even though Lucy has significant medical challenges ahead of her that they will find strength and support they never imagined.
Will you pray for Lucy? Pray she remains strong. Pray she can hold on for just a little while longer until her mommy and daddy find her.
The 24 hour prayer chain for Lucy will be on Thursday, March 18 starting at 6:00 am and will end on Friday at 6:00 am. If you can commit just one hour of your time, please list it in the comment section of the Amy's blog (http://1001tears.blogspot.com/). Please list the hour you’ll be praying and where you’re from. I hope people all around the world will pray for Lucy.

I think God has amazing things in store for this child. Please be a part of it.

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.--John 14:18

Please help to get the word out by reposting this on your blog, yahoo groups, and facebook pages. Please have people link back to Amy's blog (www.1001tears.blogspot.com) to comment, so we can see just how many people love and care for Lucy.
