There are two very special families out there…

March 15th, 2012

…or maybe just one special family!

They will look at these two precious girls, who both weigh less than Katie does right now…

Sarah, age five~


…and Carissa, age four and a half~


…and will know that they belong in their family!


“I dream that I am carrying the children one by one from their beds out to groups of waiting parents, pleading with them, ‘What about this one?  Please, see his beauty, see her worth!'”


Oh, sweet, tiny treasures!  We can’t wait to see who God is sending to get you out of that dark and hidden place and take you home to love you!


Friends, could you please help to spread the word about these little loveys far and wide?  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!


Speaking of a special Pleven family, stay tuned for the next post–one of the most amazing love stories you will ever read!

    Susanna, I will keep those beautiful girls in my prayers.  I have loved your last several posts…the news from Pleven has been both disheartening and heartening simultaneously.  So deeply glad that light is shining into those dark corners.  The update on Katie was just delicious and you all continue to be in my prayers. What amazing things God can do and humans can do when filled with God’s sweet spirit.  Much love from California.

    Both girls are gorgeous and I just know that God has a family (or two) out there to bring them home.  I’ve posted them on my blog as well.  I know they have a huge group of people loving and praying for afar.  I can’t wait to see who God is going to use!  Lots of prayers for them to have the courage to take that leap of faith!

    Susanna, I’ve been following your blog for months. I even went back through the whole thing to get the whole story. You & your family are beautiful and a blessing to all who know you.  May God continue to bless you and shine through you.

    Anyway, I encountered a song today that you may know about, but I wanted to share it with you. I didn’t know where to share it, so it’s here on your latest blog post. :-) Hope you enjoy it.

    “So Far to Find You”

    Susanna have you seen this article?
    It’s about the Ashley treatment so not really relevant in some ways, I just thought it was really moving reading because it was written by someone whose start in life was similar to Katie’s. It’s wonderful to know she’s so profoundly disabled but can write like that.
