It's time to tell the story...
Once, there was a girl. She was broken, and she was a rebel. She was starving on so many levels.
Then, she met a lost boy. The boy was strong and brave, but he was also a rebel. When he met the girl, he clung to her and promised never to let go. They were lost together.
They were shuffled from place to place, but it was just more of the same.
They always ended up back in the dirt.
Then one day, a father came for them.
The father offered them full biological hereditary rights to his family inheritence.
The boy and girl accepted this offer,
and together they joined a new Family.
They were irreversibly claimed;
adopted into Grace.
And so it begins.
The girl became a mother; the boy, a father.
Soon after, the girl's new Father reminded her of a promise she had carried within her heart since she was a little girl; that someday,
she would be a mother to the lost.
She prayed that God would share
this promise with the boy.
for the single child that was promised to them,
Within days, God offered up not one,
One starving little girl...
And one lost boy.
The mother washed them off and clothed them. The father claimed them into his family, and he offered them full biological hereditary rights to his family inheritence.
The mother and father prayed for
And they were adopted into Grace.
God answers prayers,
penalties to pay, and
But in the end,
the price would be paid,
and the children would be
And so it would seem the story has come to an end.
But life lived as God's own children is the greatest adventure of all,
and our story has only just begun.
It is our honor and privilege to introduce to you the newest members of our growing family.
Meet our son...

and he was beautiful in God's sight..."
And our daughter...
20 Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing.
21 And Miriam sang to them:
“Sing to the LORD,
for he has triumphed gloriously...”
Yes, He has triumphed gloriously.
Please pray for our family as we wait to be reunited. We ask for prayers for a quick embassy date, at which time we may return to Ethiopia and bring our children home forever. The estimated wait is 2-6+ months. We are asking simply for God's perfect timing.
Please pray for strength, courage, continued healing, and faith for all of the members of our family as we wait in faith for our babies...
Thank you for being a part of this journey with us. Your prayers have lifted and sustained our family.
