Urgent Prayer Needed!!!

My sweet friend Annie is a foster mom and she's received some devasting news today. She has been told that 3 of her babies she has been fostering will be removed soon. The birth mom lives in a different town now, so CPS is finding a home for them closer to the mom. It is a long story, but I will tell you that Annie is the only mom that these kids know. Their are twins (a boy and a girl )that I believe are two now and then there is a three year old boy. Annie is as good as it gets, and she loves these kids as if they were her own. She wanted to have them forever, as the birth mom is not really able to take care of them or does she desire to do that. I am praying for a miracle in this situation. We have been praying in my bible study for almost a year for this situation to never happen, and it has. Please lift Annie and her precious family up in prayer today. On a side note, I will never forget that Annie told me once that the older little boy's favorite song is Matt Redman's "You Never Let Go". He loves it and recites it often. I am posting the lyrics, just because I need to read them too.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
Your perfect love is casting out fear
And even when I’m caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won’t turn back
I know You are near

And I will fear no evil
For my God is with me
And if my God is with me
Whom then shall I fear?
Whom then shall I fear?

Oh no, You never let go
Through the calm and through the storm
Oh no, You never let go
In every high and every low
Oh no, You never let go
Lord, You never let go of me

And I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
A glorious light beyond all compare
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes We’ll live to know You here on the earth

Yes, I can see a light that is coming for the heart that holds on
And there will be an end to these troubles
But until that day comes
Still I will praise You, still I will praise You

Chorus: (2x’s)

Oh, gosh, You know I'm praying for her. Annie is a incrediable woman and mom. Minute by minute I'm lifiting those babies up to God. I just emailed her to let her know she is on my mind all day.
Good thinking on posting this, Annie and those babies need all the prayers they can get. I know all our blog friends can do just that.

How horribly painful for her. I have heard so many stories like this with foster parents. I often think foster parents are used and abused by the system. What is best for these kids is not always the birth parents, plain and simple.

I will pray for the Lord to intercede on behalf of your friend and the children. I pray a covering over the children for protection and love.

Oh Susie - that is heartbreaking. I will certainly join you in praying for God to miraculously intervene. It puts my troubles in perspective. We only want to sell our house - these precious lives are in the balance. Thank you for telling us about Annie.
