We are so happy to announce that...

...a beautiful baby girl will be joining our family!!

Ethiopian law prevents us from posting a picture until the adoption is finalized, but I can tell you that she is absolutely stunning. She has huge brown eyes, a precious smile and the sweetest pouty lips!!

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7
