Care Packages Sent to Ethiopia


YESSS! Summer is finally here. It seems that summer takes a long time to actually arrive in Minnesota. Backyard baseball games are in full swing, swimming pools have water in them again, sundown arrives at 9pm or later, and we all have slightly sunburned cheeks. We love summer!
We recently sent 2 separate "care packages" to our boys in Ethiopia. We sent one package to our agency to be delivered with the next Fed Ex package of dossiers. And the other care package will be hand-delivered (with hugs and kisses) by the Gibson family who will be in Ethiopia July 5-12 to pick up their baby girl Zoie.

There are 3 familes (within our adoption agency - AWAA) travelling the first week of July to bring their children home. We hope to be among the next set or two of travel groups. There are currently 3 families with a scheduled court date of July 15 - and there are 7 families with referrals who are anxiously awaiting news of a court date before the courts close in August and September. We are among those 7 families. Please continue to pray for a court date in JULY! Let's bring these kids home to their forever families!

Hey, congrats! It was a good idea to send two sets of packages. Ours only beat our arrival by about 2 weeks. Hope things continue to go smoothly.
