“Better One”

Amazing. Simply Amazing.
I received a call for a referral yesterday!
a little 5/6 month old baby boy
 whose name means “Better One”
Yes, “Better One”
My friends—God had something better in store—for our first little boy, this little boy,  and for us.
I am in awe of God.
I told myself that I need to make a Stone of Remembrance for this time—so that when I begin to doubt His love and faithfulness—that I can look back and know He loves, He cares, and He knows.
The courts have agreed to just expedite our paperwork so we hope to be in Ethiopia soon for a court date.
I am in love and my heart is full.
Full for both boys.
Praise our God---for He is good.
