We are headed here in the morning
  Home of these guys
While so many of my favorite people are headed to my back door for this
I'm really sad to miss attending the Summit, but we committed to this Boston trip long before I knew the conference was in Dallas this year.  I guess I can go to it next year.  :)

We are taking the whole crew with us so Moody can attend the annual American Assoc. of Orthodontics meeting.  We have been asked to speak about Ethiopia and our adoption story at the annual prayer breakfast.

Please pray that we will proclaim all He desires us to at the breakfast, that we would advocate well for orphans and give Him all the glory for our personal journey with Abe.

I would also ask that you would pray our sweet boy would sleep.  He has decided to not sleep the majority of the past 5 nights and this mama is very tired.  I keep walking into rooms attempting to pack, and can't remember what I went in there for in the first place. :)

I also get to meet a her.  Jen has been a great source of encouragement along the way and I can't wait for her to travel to pick up her beautiful little peanut.

You got it backwards, my friend. You have been a source of inspiration for us:) If you forget anything, we will have it to give you. Eliza and Zach are figuring out how they can play hooky so that they can meet the Alexanders, too. Andrew has surrendered to the fact that he can not. Safe journey.

Have so much fun! Praying that God will use you to touch even MROE lives. And that Abe starts sleeping- that is NOT FUN at all! Can't wait to hear how it goes~
