thank you!

Thank you for your prayers and kind messages (I apologize it's taken us so long to write an update!).  We found out right before we traveled for Christmas that Moses was back at the transition home.  We're still waiting on additional information about his health status, but we're so grateful he was spotted running around with the "big kids!"

Please keep praying for him---and for our sanity!  We're still waiting impatiently for a court date!

please pray.

Friends,
M needs our prayers!  We just found out that our sweet boy is in the hospital and has been experiencing respiratory distress.  PLEASE join us on our knees as we plead for a full recovery ...and soon.   It sounds like he's on the upswing, but it's still so hard to be so far away, especially in moments like this.

Trusting in a God who is far bigger than us.
with love,
em

all good things...

It was a great weekend, indeed. Two families from our agency brought their babes home this weekend--and while in Ethiopia they were able to get pictures (& video!) of Moses.  It was the best birthday present, ever.  This little guy has stolen our hearts in big ways...

Also, our dear friends, Rachel & Doug, are having an online auction and it starts today. Every penny goes towards their adoption.  Please help us support them and head over to their blog and do some Christmas shopping!  (Incredible items from 147 Million Orphans, Ordinary Hero, The Anderson Crew Blog, numerous Etsy stores, and much, much more!!)  You may even stumble upon a One-Less Tee and fun baby wear from yours truly....

Thank you for your support friends.  Blessings on the week ahead!
