Good and Sad News!

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. We are trying to keep everyone informed as much as we can.  Today, we learned our dossier is officially in the mail and on the way to West Africa. Have you figured out where he lives yet? I thought the heart on the t-shirts may have given it away.

We were hopeful that another adopting family who is in Africa would be able to see our son and take a few more pictures, However, we learned Emmanuel has left the orphanage he has known as home. He has returned to his birth village to see if there are any living relatives or anyone who will care for him before he can be cleared for adoption. This is the standard procedure, but it broke my heart. I am so thankful he is too young to realize the magnitude of all this. I want to reach out and hold and tell him, buddy, I want you. I will always want you. Emmanuel, I love you son, and I am coming as fast as I can. God we trust in you!

There are no orphans with God.  He has CHOSEN us and we are ADOPTED IN CHRIST.
