Family and friends of Brian and Debbie Holt raising money to allow their two 8-year-old girls to travel with them to China this Christmas.

Brian and Debbie are my mother and father-in-law. They are such an amazing and wonderful testimony. They are waiting for word that they can travel to China to adopt their 6th child - their 3rd from China after raising 3 wonderful sons to adulthood. Instead of retiring and being at ease, they are using their middle age to raise another generation of Godly children. Lilly and Anna were both special needs children adopted in 2003 and 2005 respectively. They are now both 8 years old and thriving.
Brian and Debbie are now anxiously awaiting the opportunity to bring home Nathan Oliver, who is also a special needs child. They are likely to get permission to travel on Christmas or Christmas Eve. It has been their desire to take the two girls back to visit their country of birth and have the benefit of bonding with their new brother from the beginning; however, because of some unexplained delays and travel being pushed into the holiday season, plane tickets for the girls are going to be much more than they will be able to afford. Even if they get a great deal, they will still be short about $5,000. We plan to help them as much as we can, but it will truly take a miracle for this family to remain together for Christmas and New Years.

My wish and prayer for them is that God provide the needed funds so that they may all be together when Nathan Oliver joins this amazing family. You can read Debbie's thoughts during this long journey on her blog
Thank you, my wonderful friends, for your prayers and thoughtfulness. I am thankful for each of you.
