Urgent Prayers needed!

Would you STOP what you are doing right now and join me in prayer?  A sweet, fellow adoptive family, The Reeds, just returned home from Ethiopia with their precious baby girl.  Tulio and I had the honor of being one of the many families who prayed over and photographed their baby, Maura, while we were in Ethiopia getting Berhanesh.  Erica, Jason and Maura returned on Saturday and immediately took Maura to Vanderbilt Hospital.  She is very sick.  This morning, a heart cath and biopsy are scheduled.  

My heart is heavy.  BUT, our faith is not in doctors but in the GREAT PHYSICIAN!  Would you stand in agreement with me for this family?

Please pass this on to your churches and prayer chains!

Thanksgiving 2009

Here are some of my favorite people that I am Thankful for! We had a great time during the Thanksgiving holiday. The turkey was great and the company was even better.

Love these girls!
First Thanksgiving dinner!

Tree is up, lights are strung and presents are wrapped in anticipation of a wonderful Christmas soon approaching!

What a special photo!  This is the ornament I made last year as we waited for our child to come home from Ethiopia!  It reads "waiting in love."  When Abby found it in the ornament boxes, I nearly lost it!  She's home!  Thank you Jesus for your goodness!

First ornament hung!

We are thrilled to be able to share all of our holiday joy with Berhanesh!  Above all, we are reminded of where she was a year ago today.  Unthinkable, really!  We are lucky and honored to be a part of her life!
