UPDATE on my former foster daughter Danielle who had a daughter Courtney at 15.
For those who do not know, Courtney was born to my former foster daughter Danielle when she was 15.(She is now 18).
Courtney was born three years ago with significant health problems.She was diagnosed (eventually) with being blind,cerebral palsy, epilepsy (significant seizures) which has caused brain damage and learning development delay.Courtney was placed into care and has lived in the same foster placement all that time.She is now 3yrs old and beautiful. She has some eyesight and wears glasses.She has some learning development problems but has confounded all the diagnosies.
Today I learned that an Adoptive family have been found for Courtney and the adoption process will be complete by some time in March. I am thrilled for Courtney that this has happened as we had been warned it was incredibly difficult to find adoptive parents for a disabled child.
I thank every single person who has ever prayed for dear Courtney and for Danielle my former foster daughter. Our prayers have been answered as regards Courtney who now will have the opportunity of love and security and a consistent lifestyle.
God has been so good and answered all our prayers.
Danielle is now 18 and living in her own flat.She will soon be released from the overseeing care of social services to live independently.I have regular contact with her still but things are difficult and her lifestyle is not very positive.She seeks money to spend on a lifestyle that is not good.I pray she will be able to move forward in a positive way in her life and that she will open her heart and be guided by God.
Please spare a prayer for dear Courtney that all will be well for her adoption and for dear Danielle that she too can move forward in her life.Thankyou and God bless
Lord please hear our prayers for Courtney and Danielle.I thankyou that a family have adopted Courtney and I pray they will love her and give her a happy secure and safe life.Please continue to bless her and watch over her throughout her life.I pray also for Danielle.She is making poor choices in her life and is deeply hurting.Please guide her and comfort her.I pray she will one day be truly happy again and have the love and security she seeks in her life.Please guide me Lord that I may always remain part of her life in a positive and loving way.Thankyou Lord for the many prayers You have answered .Thankyou for hearing our prayers once again Amen
Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen
