Good news...

Proverbs 16:19
"A man’s heart plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps."

God led us to Samson Jude even though we were on a completely different path.
His leading has been made clear through answered prayer...

so we continue on our adoption journey to bring little Samson home and
we ask that you would pray for him as he waits in Ethiopia
I'm gathering more papers!! signatures!! notaries!! certifications!! etc!!
and we will trust the Lord for the additional funds to bring him home.
We are uncertain as for the exact time-frame ...
but pray that he won't have to wait much longer!

Samson-- his given name-- Hebrew meaning 'sun'
Jude -- his chosen name by us -- Hebrew meaning 'praise'
he is 2 years old

an adorable little face

and will make the perfect little brother for
Adeline, Madsion, Gabriel, Esther, and Solomon

winner to be announced as soon as I catch my breath!!
