Amazing Update

So Matt & Monica are in Ethiopia right now ... check out their blog to see how adorable their son is! Matt just emailed me a few minutes ago from Ethiopia....

I've seen, touched, and held your son! I wanted to let you know i spent a few minutes praying for your court case standing by his crib today. the monkey you sent is hanging out in his crib. of course i got pictures to email when we're home! i even got some smiles and giggles out of him. he's not serious all the time. I've got a picture of me holding 'A' and Bemnet at the same time. the special moms are great! we'll be praying tomorrow too.

My friends, that's an unreal update for today. GOD delivered that message to us when we needed it the most. With court overnight, it is unreal that we have people praying all across this country and next to our son as well.

Unreal. Matt & Monica, thank you SO much ... we are so grateful for you praying over him and the update!

I'll try to post tonight to give how we're holding up :) .... I have great peace about it now. I know it's all in GOD's hands now and that it's under His wing. I've spent part of the day researching how one gets from Nashville to Addis Ababa ... fun stuff!

Lifting prayers for you! Oh my gosh, you guys -- this could be it!

PS I did end up blowing it, just like I promised not to. I didn't get back to you about your little guy. Dawn and Jody spent more time at HH than I, so they saw him more than me. I only got a brief glimpse of him. I am SO SO SO happy that you got such a wonderful update from Matt today! I apologize for letting you slip through the cracks....
