Thank the Lord Avery is feeling better. We have been praying for her. Mateo went to be early tonight because he did not feel well. He asked if we could pray for Abe one last time as an orphan because tomorrow he would not be an orphan any more!! I started to cry!! He also said that he and Abe will have a special bond because the are both adopted. To God be the Glory! We love you all, Aunt Shanna, Uncle Luis, Mateo and Marco

Kathi said...

Hi; My name is Kathi and I came over through Gwen Oatsvall's blog. Your the fourth adoption journey I've followed over the past year and a half and it melts my heart everytime I hear of a new one. I think when I get the resources, that's exactly what I'm gonna do...adopt. I've just been so inspired by the four that I've watched. I've absolutely loved all your pictures as well.

DrewCareyShow said...

I realized while laying in bed last night that I called Abe Avery. Guess I'm a little tired and my fingers moved faster than my brain! Can't wait to see Abe AND Avery together! Thinking about you guys constantly! XOXO
