Charissa & Johnny,

Danny here. I'm deeply moved to write you. Please, in the name of Christ Jesus, remember that you're in a battle for life, and it's not against flesh and blood, but against forces of darkness that will do everything and anything to disrupt the love of God and life of God through you.

This latest news doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Just think for a second how the enemy is using this to mess with your hearts and minds. No matter what decision you make, you're left tormented with the question of whether or not it was the right thing for Ava. Our God is not a tormenting God - one who brings fear to those rescuing another with Godly love.

Please remember that Ava's real father is The Father and He has moved your hearts with abounding love for this child. It's the kind of love that goes beyond merely wanting to rescue her from an institution - like her bio father. It's the kind of love that wants to rescue and then redeem and restore all that God has for Ava. Your love is not just a defensive move, but over and above. It's the kind of love that comes from a God "who had no where to lay His head" in this world. I believe in my heart that God has provided a place for Ava to lay her head - in your house and on your shoulders of love as you bring her into a relationship with her real Father and real siblings - God Almighty and the saints of God.

There is no down side to Ava being reared by you and Johnny. None whatsoever! The enemy does not come in a red jump suit with a pitch fork, horns, and a goatee. But, instead, as an angel of light with fear and deception.

Ava's bio father has acquiesced the decision to you guys. Now be free in the name of Jesus to make it without fear or torment. Follow your hearts - the desire that God has written there. You guys love Ava and will always continue to.

I'm not telling you all what to do. I'm reminding you of what God has moved you to do - bless Ava! Hell is set against you guys as you do the work of God which is LOVE. Expect opposition even more so.

Sincerely,

Danny
