Prayers for Maclayne

If you've been following this blog for a long time you might remember a little girl, then named Leeza, that I posted about while we were visiting Zoya in the orphanage. This girl grabbed my heart and held on tight. You can read my posts about her HERE. This little girl is certainly a fighter!! Thankfully her mama and daddy found her and brought her home :)

Today she is undergoing very very high risk open heart surgery. Due to her age and the severity of her heart condition, the procedure is considered extremely high risk. If you read this at any point today, or even in the next few days, please stop to pray for her and her family. She is expected to be in the hospital at least two weeks following the surgery today.

Thank you friends!

**I just found out that her surgery has been pushed back 6 months. The pre-op studies showed that it would be difficult for her to be under anesthesia for 8-hours.   They are hoping that the medication they put her on for the next 6 months will improve her bloodflow and that this will also give her more time to gain weight. That means we have 6 more months to pray!!!!!


  1. Praying hard for God to restore this precious little one, that He might even heal her heart before the 6 months is up, that the medication would keep her in good health in the meantime and that she would chub up and be all that God has planned for her life. We've seen God do some mighty miracles in the adoption world and he CAN again!!! Amen! (((HUGS))) from RI!

  2. Thank you, Sarah, for writing this post and thank you, Anne B., for such a sweet message. Mackie is blessed to have so many people loving her and praying for her. God blessed my baby girl with such a strong will and she is using every bit of it to fight. As I've said many times before, she is my hero and I am so blessed and humbled that God chose me to be her mama.
