Great first night for us but sad news from some friends

We arrived home last night to the news that the daughter of our dear friends, and business partners, Terry and Remelle, had gone to be with the Lord. Ana had heart surgery in Denver, the day we left for Ethiopia. For some reason, her body did not recover and she needed a subsequent liver transplant a few days ago. Friday night, she went to see Jesus. Olson family, we love you so much and our hearts are breaking for you, yet rejoicing at the same time, as we know that Ana knew Jesus and is with HIM now! Your encouragement through our adoption of Gavin has been incredible and much appreciated. You continue to be in our prayers.

All of the Sweeney kids slept through the night and Gavin has been playing with toys and Legos all morning. He was delighted with a flashlight, cracking up as Janika shined it on him and then the wall. He is now friends with the big dogs, Nick and Bailey.

On the family front, I have a very upset tummy and frequent trips to the potty. Flagyl is my friend, with Cipro possibly making a visit tonight, if things don't slow down a little. Janika just started making the same trips to the bathroom, so I've started her on the bactrim. We would appreciate your continued prayers for health as we get to know each other.
