Referral

I am happy to announce that we have received and accepted a referral of a precious 11mo baby girl named Saron. Lord willing, Saron will make it home to our family. Each one of our children is a blessing to us; and we hope and pray that the Lord chooses to bless us once more with this precious child.

The rainy season is over and the Ethiopian courts have re-opened today after a six-week closure. Please join us in praying that our court date will come soon, and that we will pass court on the first try.

More info. to come as I get it.

Praying with you, Carla. What a LONG and difficult journey this has been thus far. I know the lessons have not come easy, but I trust with all my heart that the blessings will be especially sweet.

We're still waiting on "M's" court date...poor sweetie, he's getting tired of waiting, I hear. :-(

Sending you a BIG hug,
Amy

Thanks for sharing in our joy!!! I am SO excited for your family as well. I know it's been a long journey thus far, but trust it will be especially sweet in the near future!!!

BTW - what size of clothes did you send M? Did you just guess?!? I want to start shopping, but CHI said the orphanage can't get us new measurements until he moves to Thomas. :-(

Can't WAIT to bring him home. He's waited far too long! So thankful that you've loved on him during the way.

Sending sweet blessings your way!
