Family Friday - Ochs Family

Today I would like to introduce you to the Ochs family. The Ochs family has made trip one but are praying for the funds for trip two. Here is a little about their family:
Ryan and Marj Ochs always felt God's call to adopt, but they thought it would be when their biological children were older – sometime in the ambiguous future. One day Marj was reading a blog about a sweet family who were adopting a boy through Reece's Rainbow. When she clicked on the link to look at the waiting children, one little girl caught her eye. Elvira. She looked just like Ryan's baby pictures! Marj tried to forget about Elvira, but she just couldn't get that sweet face out of her head. She showed the picture to Ryan, and Ryan said, "She's beautiful." This was the same thing Ryan said when he saw their daughter, Georgia, for the first time. They both agreed to pray. After many prayers, tears, and God soothing their fears, they agreed that God was calling them to Russia to meet Elvira. They could ignore God's call no longer.Big brother Colvin (3) and sister Georgia (22 months) are excited to meet their new sister. Colvin wants to give her one of his trains. Any contributions toward their adoption would be a blessing. But most of all, their prayer is that anyone reading this would be open to God speaking into their lives on behalf of children who need mommies and daddies of their own.

The Ochs family invites you to read about their testimony on their blog and follow along on the rest of their journey. Be sure to visit Marj's beautiful Etsy shop. Every purchase helps them bring their daughter home.

Dear Lord, I lift up the Ochs family to you. I pray that people will feel led to support their adoption and help them during their final steps of their adoption. I pray that Ella remains healthy while she waits for her Mommy and Daddy to return to take her home. I pray that you keep the Ochs family strong during the holiday season when it is so hard to be away from loved ones and help them remember that this is the last holiday season that they will be separated. We ask this in Jesus' name, Amen.
