My parents and sisters leave tomorrow and Sunday to meet The Four.  (Remember the adoption post?)  The Four, that's what I've come to call them, at least in the blog world.  I am praying though, that soon, you will see their faces just as you see the faces of my other siblings.  My parents will go to the Ethiopian court, and, with prayer and grace from God, The Four will become ours.  The house is littered (literally) with clothes and supplies and gifts.  All donations.  All given by generous people.  It is so beautiful to see what God is doing.

Believe me, there will be many more adoption posts coming.  It has been the main thing on my mind lately, and I have some posts planned.

For now, I ask for your prayers.  For safety, peace, strength, courage.  For love and acceptance.  For generosity and the word "yes".  They would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

If you would like to stay updated during this upcoming week, you can go to my mom's blog here.  She will be posting from Ethiopia.

Thank you lovely followers.  I am so blessed to call you my friends!

  3. i will be praying also + check out your mom's blog :)

    God is with them. No need to worry. "Look at the birds of the air they do not sow or reap, or store away in barns yet their heavenly Father feeds them!" A Bible verse i have know and it has guided me since i was little. A song i have learned to memorized. Just pray and all will be well.
