Prayers Needed

Last night, I got the news from my mom, that my foster dad, whom I love like my own dad, is in the ICU because of stroke. He's still in critical condition. If you would please keep him in your prayer, I would so appreciate it.

Besides my mom, my foster dad is my rock. Even though he's not my real dad, I love him the same. He's been there for me whenever I needed support & guidance. He helped me when my own dad passed away and ever since then I called him "Dad". Right now, I feel helpless. I wish I could be in Indonesia right now and be with him, instead of half way around the world and waiting for news.

You know, I made this card this past weekend, before I got the news. But, it describe my feeling for my foster dad perfectly. That I am so lucky to have him in my life. I am so thankful for his love and support.

Challenge:

Always take the time to tell your love ones you love them. Every single chance.

Oh Vera,

I will pray for your foster Dad and also for you and your entire family during this difficult time. I will pray that he has a full and speedy recovery.

I know that you want to be there with him and your Mom, but they both know how much you love them and have that love with them. I wish I could give you a big *Hug* right now and please know that if you need someone to talk to, dont hesitate to let me know.

Sending prayers and *Hugs*,
