Please pray for this family

I don't personally know this family, but long story short, this family is very dear to my foster sister and her family. We fostered Christina many years ago but we have kept in touch with her and her family. They sent me this family's blog and asked that I pray and if I would share the story so even more people can be praying.

Our tiny little dancer...

This girl cracks me up. I sat down to just give a quick update that her dance recital went well...until she spotted Santa across the stage at the end, but aside from Santa completely bringing her to tears and her just wanting to get the heck outta there, she enjoyed being up on stage. That was a real poorly written run-on sentence. Anyways, as I was posting these pics of her it just made me laugh all over again. This kid makes me want to pull my hair out more than Taylor ever did at this age, yet I'm laughing as I do it. She's just "that kid". She's "that kid" who draws on ANYTHING in sight when she has a writing instrument in her hand. Be it the ground, a wall, our unfinished wooden stool, the couch, her doll, an important receipt, the inside of the pantry door, herself or her leggings. She's "that kid" that I send upstairs to simply go brush her teeth only to find that she dumped out a new bottle of hand soap and filled it with water. She's "that kid" that while I'm in my bathroom drying my hair, she's in my bedroom spraying foot spray on Danny's nightstand and then mixing lotion all over it too. She's also "that kid" that gets a hold of the chilren's tylenol bottle, figures out how to open it, and then pours 3/4 of the bottle on my bedroom carpet. She's "that kid" who sneaks a sucker out of her backpack and thinks that I don't see her with a pillow on her lap as she lays her head on it to get a lick of her sucker that she's hiding between her legs. She is "that kid" that I think is upstairs laughing away playing nicely with her cousin, only to go check on them to see what's so funny and I walk into a room filled with poweder in the air...baby powder. She was jumping up and down with an open bottle of baby powder. She's just "that kid" that is ALWAYS getting in to something and it's SO hard to get mad cause she's just so stinkin cute and hilarious!! It's amazing how much character and expression (and anger) can come out of such a little thing! =) I wish I had a video camera on her 24/7. Love her to pieces.

What's at your back door?
