Nick got a call last Friday that The Tyra Banks Show is interested in our story/my child advocacy work. They are taping a special to be aired before the Christmas holidays about women who have dedicated their lives to a worthy cause!

I feel so blessed to be able to get our story out there and raise awareness about 2 things I am PASSIONATE about-Adoption AND Drug Endangered Children-changing the laws to make moms testing positive for Illegal Substances during pregnancy face mandatory rehabilitation until the birth of their babies. Thank you Lord for giving us this opportunity.
We will be leaving for NYC on November 30th and flying home December 3rd. Please be in prayer with us that all we say & do will glorify HIM! AND we will be sending our kids 3 different places, just pray for their care givers and that we remain healthy and things will run smoothly!
Isaiah 1:17

Our God is an awesome God who reigns from heaven above, with power and wisdom!

Our God has gone before you and has already paved the way for you to share about His love! He will fill your mouth with every word needed to be shared and heard!

I'm so excited to see your family and story being used for His glory. Praise God that Tyra is open to hearing the gospel message and giving that same hope to millions of her viewers!

I'll be in prayer for your travels, children and your time spent with her!

Isaiah 26:3 - repeat this often as you prepare yourself for the show.

Many blessings to you this week - we have so much to be thankful for!
