If I could think of one person with a “Mother’s Heart” it would be Bonnie Sue Walker.

John and I first met Wayne and Bonnie Sue Walker many years ago. We were hoping to adopt and so were they. Bonnie Sue led a group to Romania. She ended up staying longer than expected but came home with three beautiful children. They had already adopted a beautiful daughter from India, a son from Korea, a sweet little Chinese boy from Thailand and later, adopted twin infants before moving to Uganda where God led them to start an orphanage. They were there many years and after Good Shepherds Fold was established and running well with widows living in homes with several orphans in each house and new management, they followed the Lord to a new area of ministry.

The children they adopted while still living in the states are grown now. One is a U.S. Marine, one son is a student in aviation, at least one more is attending college. Did I mention that most of the children were “special needs children”? And now, they are trying to adopt Jedidiah. Red tape has blocked the way and Bonnie Sue, who had to come back to the states almost two years ago for health reasons, longs to hold her little boy in her arms once more. (Not to mention to be reunited with her wonderful husband!)

Please pray for the Walkers – that God will perform miracles and bring little Jedidiah home.

Much love,

    Friends, I am so sorry to tell you that my friend, Bonnie Sue was called home to glory yesterday after a long time battling cancer.
    I understand they were not allowed to keep little Jedidiah. Officials in Thailand did not want to finalize the adoption because of their age.
    Please pray for Wayne, Jedidiah and all of their wonderful children.
