Time is ticking for Kolya and for us.. A little makes a lot.  We have gone as far  as we can go right now.  We are at a stand still we have to have 5,500.00 to get a contract with the adoption agency in order for them to look at the  Home Study and approve it once its gets approved it goes back to Kelly our lady she write report then to Texas to Immigration to put in request for adopting a Eastern Europe orphan then we will get invite from EE. Along with that we have to do Dossier which is the EE home study 40 pages, plus we still have to get our finger printing from US Immigration, have to get all these notarized and then taken to Atlanta to get the golden seal with means they are ready to go to EE and hand to courts there. Before we leave for EE we have to give the adoption Agency 7500.00 before we leave out of here Jan 29 from Saturday to Thursday we will meet him and claim him then we wait and get directions from Eastern Europe (EE) for the next step.

We are going for the goal..  Taking care of one of Gods Children..  To anyone who can or will..  We have a huge journey put before us.. I stand very humbled in my life that God has Chose Phillip and I to be Kolyas mom and Dad..That my God in heaven thinks we are good enough parents to parent one of His "Special" children.  We have a journey a head of us and praying for GOds guiding and provision all the way.. We know we in and of our selves cant do this.. BUt with the help of people we keep Kolya from going into the streets at age 16.  We are raising the funds to Adopt him.. I cant tell you how it is all going to work out all I can tell you is through a whole series of events we know with out a Shadow of a doubt GOd has Kolyas back and he is watching out for this little guy and HE is going to us Phillip, and I and Adam and Ryan to do this.  We thank you for your prayers and support please pass this blog to all you know and ask people to pray for us.  thank you and God bless we cant wait to meet our Boy.  Very soon.. Merry CHristmas.. Anne

A Time to Wait Upon The LORD

Have you ever wanted to fix something and to know there is absolutely nothing you can do without the help of GOD...  That is where we are today..  We know that unless GOd moves in a BIG way our Child very well could not have a home here in a warm bed but in the far away Streets all the way across the world ... This thought makes me sick..  But there is where FAITH has to meet the rubber in the road..  IF we can do in on our own and we know its bigger than we are what do you do..  You do all you can do and wait upon the Lord.. Last Wednesday well actually later than that  3 weeks ago tomorrow we got the call..  The hosting program called and said orphanage #18 was shutting the host program down and the 3rd high up person refused to sign the Visa for the children in that orphanage to come and spend 4 weeks in America..  Our whole world just fell out.  Lord Lord what are you doing here was this a cruel joke why would he put this precious boy in our path if he wasnt going to bring him over here?  I just dont understand..  I cried, I prayed and in my living room floor I opened my Bible and sought the Lord you know he says seek and you will find ask and you shall receive. Well I found in on my floor with my Bible I opened it up and it fell open to Psalm 68:6 Do you know what that says?  God setteth the solitary (lonely) in families: and he bringth thos who are bound with chains....  My God cares He spoke to me..  He sets the lonely in families  I cried even harder.  As I have said in other post or notes through out this whole journey He keeps literally sending me to Gods word and giving me Hope to hold on to..  I prayed it was revealed to me that the host program was never the focal point it was just what brought us to find him..  IF it hadnt been for the hosting program we would of never found him.  God has told us to keep pursuing him through adoption so we are doing so..  This past Wednesday I was taking a week off to pray and seek God in direction waiting for the FBI clearance and ect.  and on Wednesday it had been a hard day I forget what was going on but I just went into my place and started praying and again God brought we to a word..  Luke 18:27 now i want to tell you I have quoted this verse a hundred time but I did not know where it was untill He brought it to me I just about fell over..  The things which are IMPOSSIBLE with men are Possible with God.  I never knew where it was.. Then saturday night i was talking to a good friend in Charlotte and we prayed and guess what she prayed that exact verse over us so I had to share with her about what God did for me that Wednesday and not only did he send me to Luke he sent me to Jeremiah and got another version of the verse too..  Two in one day God is not a God of sequences.   Then I go to church and guess what They are singing  All things Are possible.. I just had to stand up and share what the Lord has done and said to me that whole week the them of learning to trust HIm even when we in our humanness cant see this or how its going to all work out..  As i have said in the past I truely cant save the whole world that is what Jesus Christ did for EVERYOne that excepts HIM.. But we all can have a piece of the pie with helping to Save Cole from a life of distruction and early death.. most Children thrown on the streets dont make it past 23 years old is what I had red..  I cant imagine that is when Life is just getting started.
  I sat one day and just wondered about Cole mother.. She has died and his father is in prison we are told and all rights terminated.  As I thought about his mother I just wondered did she love him as we love our children over here?  Did she pray for him as I do for my children?  was she a christian?  Did she ever pray Oh God if something happens to me please find my child a family to care for him to love him to feed him to clothe him?  The idea come to me if she did then we would be a direct result of the power of a praying momma?  and that one day I would meet her in Heaven and he would know his momma was a christian and life on this earth is only temporarily and in Heaven he would yet see his momma again.  you see our Cole is delayed he is 15 but is more on the level of 10 to 12 year old this is normal for children that live in these extreme conditions.  I have a friend who has adopted 3 from the same orphanage in 07 and they was delayed now they are the top of there class in East Jackson High.. So these children do really thrive in a good loving environment.  I know I keep writing but we do so desperately need the prayers of the righteous because there prayers availeth much.  I want to be a part of a miracle that will last of eternity.  I dont want anyone or child to have to live a live of such in humane circumstances.. He deserves a home just like you and me and I am praying and believing God for it.  May your day be blessed and better tonight for taking the time to think upon these things.  God Bless.

CHALLENGE 2 ALL My Fber Friends 2 Donate $5 or 10.00 towards Changing a LIFE Forever.


 My heart is so heavy and burdened with the weight of knowing what must happen in order to make this adoption to work in Cole's Life and destination.  God is showing me that only he can open these doors and close these doors. When you focus on the issue at hand and the goal that is there it can seem impossible but my God tells me all things are possible through Christ Jesus. Regardless where you are in this walk of life the main situation at hand is a little boy named Cole is an orphanage and turns 16  March 9.  This  child's life can be changed and touched by each one of you with a simple act of kindness donating 5.00 or $10.00 to help get the ball rolling for a home study and a FBI clearance along with more forms due to the Immigration as well as him coming for Christmas.  This all has to get done before we can start looking for grants to help fund the actually adoption.
Let me break all this down for you so that you can see what I am talking about.
visit: 2500.00 we have 1784.43 needing to raise 518.57 more
Home Study 1500.00 need to raise 1500.00
FBI clearance and  fingerprinting 92.00
Immigration form and more finger printings for the other country end -720.00+170.00=890.00
 Whoa you think that sounds like a lot well it sounds like that to me too and I know that isn't even a pinch of it but we are taking it one day at  time and one step at a time..
As I broke this all down the totally amount is 3197.57 for this part.  I have 302 wonderful awesome friends on face book who I love so.  I did the math and if everyone donated 10.00 it would bring us to about what we need to get past this 1st hump of this process.  Isn't that amazing what a little can do to make such HUGE IMPACT in the rest of this boys life..  The rest of his life could be a long time.
If 10.00 is to much I understand there was a time when 10 was too much for us and I so understand.  If you can even do 5.00 or 2.00 even a 1.00 no amount is to small I promise you God can take it and multiply..  I keep hearing the words A LITTLE CAN MAKE A LOT..  You do what you can and the rest will work its self out.

If you feel lead to donate more I promise you it will be all used solely to get him here for good we are looking at a little over 40,000 to adopt  their is so many that say well there is so many that is cheaper, closer, less hassle ect we have heard it all and we did not go looking for this Child he found us meaning- his picture, his face, his name, everything just started to fall in place and we knew this was the one even threw the hurdles and hoops we are going to have to go through to get him secured be for he turns 16 that is the intensity of this situation and we believe it was all divinely orchestrated and we are living out the faith I preach and walk everyday.  If you want to donate large amount or want tax deduction let me know we are working to where it would be tax deductible.  Also any charity up to 500.00 is automatically tax deductible if you keep receipt of what it was and turn into your tax person.
I do genuinely love you guys I love my time on face book and looking forward to meeting you each day and seeing how your lives have turned you are part of my family of friends. I hope you seriously think how just a little can make such a big difference in the grand scheme of things.  Thank you again for everything in advance.

If cant give than please just pray that is just as IMPORTANT IF NOT MORE for those who can and will I pray that it will be multiplied and blessed.
 Go to my blog and look at his eyes and his sweet face he deserves a forever home too Help us I am going to post what he said on his interview before getting choose as one of the children to come over.
15 years old - one of our "last-chance" kids.  Given one wish, he said he'd like to have a normal family.  He was a team favorite.  He had a great smile and a good sense of humor.  He said he'd like to be close to a city if he visited America.  He enjoys playing table tennis, reading, riding bikes and drawing army pictures.  His favorite color is red.  He likes dogs and cats, but his favorite animal is a parrot.  He's ok with a family with other children and would like to have an older sibling.  If he could have one gift, he'd choose a table tennis paddle.  This young man is very sweet and had a calm personality.   
Can you believe that all he wanted was a table tennis paddle don't you know I am going to the ends of the earth to find this little boy a table tennis paddle I don't even know what it is but I will find out..  He wants a normal family well I don't know if we are normal but we do have love and would love to share it with others and we desire to be used in a great and mighty ways however that may be.  I thought it was interesting he said he wanted a older brother  Phillip isn't an older brother but i can tell you he sure is a big kids at heart.  He loved his youth group when he was youth pastor and I know that Him and Cole will become fast buddies/ father/friends.. I am so excited to see what God is going to do.  Feel the excitement and is hoping you are getting excited too..I dont know about the parrot Adam wants one of those too but Phillip has held his stand on that he says i have to buy him a snake 1st and I am not letting no snake come into my home..  So the parrot is not in the picture.  Sorry Adam and Cole. I like birds too I want love birds or gold finches I love them singing..  Love you all Happy Reading.

Thanks and Blessing Trusting in the one that Can,      Phillip, Anne, Adam and Ryan and Cole Petitt

Day 1: How The Journey Began?

As I sit here in the wee hrs of the night just thinking and expecting and wondering how God is going to make all this happen..  The average Joe would think we have went out of our ever living minds.  But I have news for you we haven't.  We have prayed earnestly, through prayer and crying out for wisdom from our Lord Jesus Christ for his will and not ours.. How does one ever come to this place?  Well very carefully and very prayerfully.. Phillip and I have always had a passion for underprivileged children.  Off the charts on the Gift of Mercy I am.  Our journey started so long ago actually with looking into the local DFAC.. My husband at the time was only making $12.00 an hr we went to DFACs Foster Care and expressed an interest.... actually it started when I was sitting in medicaid office updating medicaid and I saw this My Turn Now book full of all these beautiful children  there was one set of 5 to be exact they were precious I still have them in my mind I can remember them so vividly.  I was in love and I wanted those little girls I took the boys, took me a book and I started on my endeavor..  I showed Phillip this book with all these children in it.. We found another special boy we have never been able to forget older boy named Olga he sounded like he would of fit in our family perfectly.  Musically inclined, talented in several areas, loved the trampoline and we just wanted to get to know more about these two picks we had chose my girls ranged from 3 to 10 nice spread and throw the  boys in with that perfect..  Well we and another family went and had a meeting with DFACSs we were ready to start proceedings for  foster to adopt.  Well guess what they looked at us like we was plum out of our minds..  They did the math WE just let our hearts walk and talk for us..  To this day Phillip and I have never forgot those two sets of children and even when we got a little more on our feet we went to looking for those precious children, At that time it just wasnt Gods timing.  So being a new radical for Christ I was trying to wait on the Lord and that was 06 when that started.  In 07 I came across  Every year I would show Phillip all those precious children, sibling groups.  I got the same answer so I had to wait but as I would wait I would weep and pray over these children..  They get to come 2 times a year once in summer and once in winter.  Each year I was faithful I went back and kept looking this time I got the boys looking.. We have always taught our children about what the Bible says in Psalms 10:14b The helpless commits (leaves, entrust) himself to YOU; You are the helper of the fatherless. We have read tons of missionary books YWAM one of our favorites George Muller and any others we could get our hands on.  Knowing our 9 meals in a 3 day period plus we cant forget snacks ect to there 1 in poverty stricken areas..  My heart Lord break it.  When I was in Hondurous God broke me for the poor of the land I seen the poorest of the poor.  We are rich compared to what I seen even the poorest of poor in America is Rich..  Some might not like that statement and I don't want to offend anyone but what I have seen in this one village not even the word I have in my mouth could describe to you what I saw.  I began a journey over there I cried out to God for understanding.. Why God why God it was more than I could bear and again I wept over these poverty stricken people. People with such infections, lack of clothing, bloated stomachs, death all over them.  Then Lord sent me to Job..
 As I kept studying Gods word I did a 6 hr intense bible study on my own the word fatherless, orphans widows and foreigners..  I had 6 pages front and back of Gods thoughts, and His heart when it came to these people in His word.  It might of been at that point I had surrendered this area of my life to Him and told Him it was His life in me, and His home: Body, Soul and Mind---- have thy own way Lord you are the potter and I am the clay, hold me and mold me....So this is where we have come from.. to be continued for the rest of the story..
