Dreaming, Wishing, Hoping & Praying a Merry Christmas to our future baby son in Ethiopia!

Last year at this time, we were praying for a little boy in Rwanda. We still pray for him, but also hope that he's now been adopted into a caring, loving home! This year as we enter the holidays our prayers now include our future baby boy who is somewhere in Ethiopia. We're dreaming, wishing, hoping & praying a Merry Christmas for him as we prepare our hearts & home for his arrival here sometime in 2011! Keep him in your prayers that he is safe as he waits for us!

Enjoy this video! (Be sure to pause our music player at the bottom of our blog.)

Orphan Sunday -- Nov. 7, 2010

This Sunday is known by many Christians as Orphan Sunday! Churches all around the nation will be setting aside time to pray for the fatherless, visit orphans, and educate their congregations about caring for children that are without families. I had never heard of this until we started the adoption process ourselves, and I think it is one of the coolest things! What a great way to spread the word about the needs of orphans and the opportunities for foster care and adoption.

Watch this video & please pray for orphans worldwide this Sunday! And, our continuing request, please pray for our baby-boy-to-be that's somewhere in Ethiopia waiting for us to bring him home! (be sure to put our music player at the bottom of our blog on "pause" before starting this video)
