Revelation 3:8 (New International Version)
I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.

The child is the beauty of God present in the world – that greatest gift to a family.” (Blessed Teresa of Calcutta)

We had not posted in awhile because in a nut son and I were sick. My son Elijah had very bad GI symptoms lasting 5 days. We went to the pharmacy and bought him electrolyte replacement. Just as he was starting with GI....I was starting with an awful cold/flu. I had the ache ache body, low grade fever, sore throat it then turned into runny nose, cough (non-ending). Today is Sunday and I feel back to myself. We visited the children but were very careful visiting only one orphanage a day...avoiding all the kisses that I wanted to give. There was actually one day that Steven and Eljah had to go to the orphanage by themselves.

Anyways today being Sunday...I feel great but am so nervous for tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Monday and it is our court day!!! Please pray for us.

It has been awhile since I posted. A thank you note

We are going on 28 days of being here!! Can you believe it. We miss all the kids at home. My parents and my 2 dearest friends have held up the fort while we have been gone. I know they have changed their everyday routines to give us this time to travel and become parents to these 3 orphans. I thank them. Thanks mom, dad, Nese, Stephanie, and kids at home. I also want to thank those who have donated to help us through. Yes, the truth is when we return home we still have to raise money to help pay for the children's return flights home and US embassey money needed so the 265 in our FSP will help. We thank you for those who donated. We have used 50 dollars of that money to help pay one of our nights in the apartment...thank you. Thank you also for everyone's lovely comments left on this has lifted us.
