God Open Doors No man Can Shut...Close doors that no Man can OPEN.

Well a lot has transpired in the last two weeks.  Praise God for God and Praise God for all His Grace. Threw much Fasting and PRAYING this is where God has brought us in the The Petitt Adoption and A Journey to SAVE a LIFE.

  • A lot has happened in the last 2 weeks, Cole's brother as of right now has Denied us rights to adopt him. 
  • Threw much prayers and tears God has opened doors very wide to move forward in adopting a baby boy less than 24 months of age.  Girls are very hard to get over there and there is a very long waiting list and we don’t have that time since we have already been in this a year. The request went in today and we should have a baby to come and get referral for very soon.
  •  WE have prayed and have mourned over this turn of events with COLE and we are trusting God in His bigger plan in all this.   We feel we are to still bless Cole's orphanage.  We want the officials to  see we American people are for Love not Hate or War.  Over there these orphanages with the older children are very much scared of us. They think we are going to harm their children which is so not true. We are praying that this will open the orphanage and the older officials hearts to allowing other children to be adopted from this place without the fear we have had from the workers and officials in this area.. We can show them Christ Love threw the power of GIVING and Blessings their children.

  • We are raising the funds to get their orphanage a New Ping Pong Table and as many Ping Pong Paddles as we can and trinkets/gifts for at least 70 children,  candy for a Piñata with lots of goodies and fun involved.  We want to have a “YOU ARE SPECIAL PARTY” for every CHILD there.  WE know its been at least 5 years that any child has been adopted out of this orphanage and the number of adoptions is a low as 4 or 6 in the whole orphanage. Really?  Really. The ages is 8 to 16 in this one place.  There is over a 170,000 orphans in our area alone.  We have been told that we can take bake goods over there so anyone who likes to do this FUN in baking, making treats and cookies before we leave we are going to take those there too.  We will send an email to all that might  want to love these orphans from a far with goodies.

  • WE KNOW God Can change these people’s hearts towards letting us bring COLE home and we are still believing God for the Miracle of these two children, that God has us qualified for.

  •  He gave us a verse to confirm Blessing the Orphanage and people with gifts:  Proverbs 18:16  A Gift Gets ATTENTION, it BUYS the Attention of EMINENT People.NLT   Proverbs 18:16 A mans gift makes room for him and brings him before great men.NKJ   We are confirmed that we are in the right direction.  A we have said from the BEGINNING, this is an ADOPTION BY FAITH not BY SIGHT.

  • Cole is still legally allowed to come to America if hearts and mind their minds.  But as I said GOD WILL have to MOVE THESE boundaries.   

  • His younger brother is never to be adopted he is in an institution severely handicapped from what we have heard.

  •  If God closes the door for him to come to American we are still going to support him if he wants to go to a home for those who have phased out of the system. We feel we have a life line with him and he will Always be our son whether legally or spiritually.  We are working on a place for him to stay and will have a place to live, 3 meals a day, learn a trade of his choice, room and board, and discipleship training as well.

  • We have cried, we asked God so many questions and he has been very affirming that we are right where he wants us and he will take care of us and this will all come to PASS according to His Will.  Romans 8:28 And we know that All things work TOGETHER for good of them who love GOD, to them who are called according to His purpose.  We are ready To BRING our “Chance” home.  And if God Brings Kolya home too that will just be just a Completed Blessings to this years JOURNEY.
  •  We know this has been a Journey of a life time with lives that will be touched for all of eternity.  We will not stop praying for every person that has had a part in these decision or in Cole’s life.
"May the God of HOPE fill you with all the JOY and PEACE as you TRUST  in HIM


  1. Dearest Phillip and Anne,

    (This is the second attempt to write – my first post “mysteriously” disappeared!)

    I want to encourage you and also tell you how you inspired me today when I read your post.

    The fact that you wait on the Lord and trust Him with your every step makes for a success story. You have the unique ability to look past all the enemies attempt to throw you off track, but to see with every “curve-ball” a bigger opportunity for our Loving Father to work an even bigger miracle.

    I love your commitment and passion for the children God brought into your hearts and the unconditional and unwavering love you have for them, as well as the compassion with those who do not know any better. (Isaiah 61:1).

    I love that you see deeper into what is manifesting in the physical world, but have the discernment to know that this is a battle between good and evil. (2 Corinthians 10:3-4))

    Please continue in your steadfast faith and please continue to push ahead (2 Corinthians 1:21). You are an awesome family who is showing the world what willingness, faith (Romans 15:3), commitment (Galatians 6:9) and love (1 Corinthians 13) can do. You also show that we do not need to “give up” when things get tough. (Psalm 30:7)

    I’ve heard many times over the last few months that the enemy attack most fiercely when God is about to either Bless you or use you for something huge. Satan hates this and tries his utmost as a “last attempt” to throw you off track. Hang in there and do not give up though, as God promises us in Deuteronomy 28:7 – The Lord causes my enemies who rise up against me to be defeated before my face; they shall come out against me one way and flee before me seven ways.

    My prayers are with you on your lives, on your calling and your mission to do what you have been called to do (Jeremiah 7:23, Deuteronomy 28:1, Matthew 13:19,23 – You WILL produce the crops that you are planting – hundred fold!).

    Blessings & Lots of love from my heart to yours.

  2. I just want you to know you have been an answer to My prayers. You just cant imagine how much. I have suffered for two days from anxiety and just crying out literally to since 2 weeks ago Monday and especially these two days, God if this was the right decision. and earlier today after a friend and I prayed and I had been praying I surrendered to The WHATEVER again to God and The Letting Go. My husband is the Rock in all this too. He has never wavered from this and God. Threw all the opposition even from love ones. Oh how are hearts have mourned this and we have prayed so hard for God just to send HIS signs and wonders and He has since OCT 2010 for all of it. Today I prayed again God just give me a sign that we are still in the great Pillar Cloud and He used you. Praise be to God. and I loved that you persevered even when satan took your letter. Yes I have had that happen before but you didn't stop you kept going and you did write it again. Thank you, thank you I so needed you to do that. I do believe and see the spiritual battle we have been in, satan is matter than hades. We are going after what he feels is his and we are still bull dozing him down. He thinks he has won but I am not so sure about that. With the God in Heaven I serves He says." Is there anything IMPOSSIBLE for ME?" I say blindly, "NO GOD." satan puts up a road blocks and God opens another door and we walk threw it no matter what it looks like. We see giants everywhere but the GREAT I AM is protecting us each step of the way. Praise Be to God. Thank you for being an encouragement, an answer to prayers, and loved the scripture reference I am going to go and read everyone of them and write them down in my journal. I Need your prayers send me your email I want to know you better and I will send you the picture of the little Chance Matthew we got today he is beautiful he will be 2 in May. And we need you to pray for a Miracle for Cole we still want him But GOD WILL HAVE TO DO THIS ONE we can do nothing else. Blessings and Love AnneP I am ENCOURAGED.. I am very thank for all my bosom friends who have called, wrote encouraging notes along the way or face booked they are few and far in between but I appreciate everyone one of the. God will do a MIRACLE for ALL TO SEE. EVERYONE knows with our oldest only a miracle will make it work. Whether we get the answer we want or the answer we dread GODS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT.
    LoveWINS, Anne
