AWAA Gathering and grace

This weekend we got together with several other families who have adopted or are adopting from Ethiopia! We met at a local park and then ate dinner at an Ethiopian restaurant. It was so nice to meet so many adoptive parents and children! A big thanks to Marshall who took the group picture.
Here's Igor at the Ethiopian restaurant!


I am reading - Sin Boldly - it's about God's grace. On Sunday I was in a funk, I was not expecting to receive grace, I wasn't even looking for it.... but after church a sweet lady came up to me saying I had been on her heart and she wanted to help me in some way, she suggested cleaning our house or some sort of act of service. I was floored, humbled and grateful. If that wasn't enough of a message from God, our neighbor came by Sunday night with an envelope. A week and a half ago she received a piece of our mail. When we opened the envelope, it included a lovely card with a sweet message and a check to help bring Henry home. Rob and I were floored, humbled and grateful.
Thank you God for showing me your grace when I desperately needed to see it.
