Please pray for friends of ours that are traveling to Uganda tomorrow. There are three families that are all going to get their boys. Two are four and one is one and a half. They all came from the orphanage where Kai once was. We are so glad that these boys will meet their families this week. Pray that they will adjust to their families, that court will go well, that they will be safe as they travel, they will have a smooth, quick process, that they will all be able to get their visas in a timely manner, and that it will be an amazing life changing trip for these families and these three boys who will be orphans no more! God is so good and it is so wonderful to see him bringing families together through adoption. He is bringing healing to the broken. It may not be easy, but He is in control. So, excited that we will have three more little guys (somewhat) in our area from Uganda to be a part of our new “extended family”.
Please check out the blog All Things His…they are having an awesome giveaway for an adoption t-shirt…which i can say is totally cool, since i already ordered and have the one in black…i am hoping to maybe win the gray one too you could win too…go over to http://www.allthingshis.blogspot.com to find out how you could win…and while you are there read some of the posts from this family…they are raising money now to bring home their sweet children from Uganda! And if you don’t win, you could and should definitely still order a shirt to support them! (you can also go to my links, select Uganda Adoption Blogs, and look for All Things His where all the blogs are listed.)
We have been busy, but not in a crazy, out-of-control way. In a really fun and normal way. So, here are some pics to show a little bit of what’s been going on in our house recently….
1. Eating and loving chocolate
2. Kai is getting sillier and crazier and loves to play
This is the very first picture we saw of Kai. She was being picked up from Ibanda Babies Home and taken into our social worker’s care until we could go to Uganda ourselves and get our baby. We received this October 16th.
Today I made some headbands for some little girls in Ethiopia. A missions team is heading to Ethiopia very soon and are hoping to bring 400 headbands to the beautiful girls in Korah. When I read about what they were hoping to do at My Crazy Adoption, I thought about my little princess and how MANY headbands she has. Every little girl wants (and deserves) to feel and look pretty, and it is just a small way to get involved and bring joy to others who are across the world in conditions that we cannot even imagine. If you are interested in learning more about this project and want to get involved head on over to the links section and click on My Crazy Adoption. This is a super easy and fun way to make a difference. Here are some pics of Kai with the end results.
