Exciting few days

Before we get on to the news of the past few days, please notice the new blog button at left. We started sponsoring a boy at Kind Hearts, which is just outside Addis, a few months ago. This sponsorship is unlike any we've ever seen and we are blessed to be a part of it. Click on the button to find out how you can impact the life of a child. Mike and I will be able to meet our sponsor child when we travel this summer- so excited about that opportunity.

We officially accepted our referral. Since then, we have been inundated with emails from families who have met our kids in Ethiopia. Their words could be carbon copies of each other. They all say how kind, beautiful and amazing our kids are. We feel honored to be able to bring them home. They should be getting a letter from us and a picture explaining to them who their new family is and seeing how many of us there are!!

We are sending in our application to the Dept. of Homeland Security today. It's the last piece needed to request a court date. We would appreciate prayers for a speedy turnaround.

I've been asked about pictures. Yes, we have many pictures of the kids, including the ones Mike and my big 3 took when they met them last June. I can't post those pictures, though, until we pass court. This helps maintain confidentiality--and we fully understand. Believe me, when we're able to put pictures up, we will put up a ton--

God is good- all the time!!
