Updates Pics & A Prayer Request

Wednesday, January 25, 2012
So one of the things I LOVE about blogging is it has allowed me to "meet" wonderful people, who I now consider friends!! I "met" Julie a couple of months ago. She and her husband are adopting a sweet little girl from Ethiopia and we have both been following each other's blogs and talking through comments. When I heard the news that Julie and her husband Adam were traveling for court I was so excited and then I realized they are using the same adoption agency in country that I am using. I e-mailed Julie and asked her if she wouldn't mind checking in on my sweet boy for me and if she could get a picture of him for me. Well, she did way more then that!! She has sent me TWO e-mails this week with updates on my sweet boy and a total of EIGHT pictures of him!!! Let me just tell you those e-mails and pictures have made this momma super happy!! I have been missing my boy like crazy and to hear he is doing so well and that he is still my happy smiley boy just brings sweet tears to my eyes!! Oh how I pray he is home SOON!!! I can't believe how big he is getting and those curls!!

Adam and Julie are in Ethiopia and will be going to court in a few short hours. I have been praying for them through out the day and will continue until I go to bed :) If I didn't have to work a 12 hour shift tomorrow I would stay up until I heard they passed!! If you will please say a prayer for them. Pray that all goes well with court and that their MOWA letter is there. Julie is such a sweet person and I look forward to continuing our friendship and one day in the future having a "travel play date" so our kids can play together again once they are both home :) I am so happy that Isaiah will be able to continue to know and see his little friends he has shared time with in the transition home. The Lord has blessed me with sweet friendships with 6 different families who have adopted little ones that are around the same age as Isaiah, and whom all have been able to love on and check on Isaiah for me while I have been home. What a blessing that has been!!

Thanks for your prayers!! Enjoy these sweet pictures of my little man!! I continue to pray that he is in my arms and home by his big brother's birthday in March!!!

    Hey, I saw on Kelly's Korner that you were a fundraising family. I wanted to let you know of a program we are offering to fundraising families through The Sparrow Fund (www.sparrow-fund.org) that allows them to sell items like the ones on our fundraising Etsy site (www.thesparrowfund.etsy.com). If you are interested in learning more about it, feel free to email me and I'll send the info along!

  3. Sarah, I just had to tell you that your little sweetie is so ADORABLE!!! He is just precious. I haven't been blogging much lately, but please know that I am thinking of you and will pray that you will be able to bring your little boy home very soon!
