Abe is 4!!!

Hard to believe that Abe is 4 today.  This kid changed it all.  The Lord used him to rock our world in the best possible way.  Our lives are better because of him, because He saw fit to gift our team this treasure.  I simply can't wait to see how Abe continues to impact lives for Jesus.  Happy birthday buddy.  We love you.

 First picture we saw of Abe

 His beautiful first mom, saying good-bye
 Brotherly love
 Happy guy

That precious smile
 Back in Ethiopia

super hero
standing tall
I'm pretty cute
No longer the baby! Big brother now. :)

As an adoptive mom, it is impossible to celebrate this day without thinking of the sacrificial love of his birth mom.  She is a beautiful woman.  She loves Abe fiercely.  You can see the reunion she had with him here.  It is always hard to post.  It is raw.  It tells his story but prayerfully it shows a picture of adoption.  Adoption is His heart.  So it really is His story after all.  Dekanesh, as you reflect on this day 4 years ago, we pray you know this little guy is loved dearly.  He continues to draw people back to Ethiopia to love and serve there.  May you know that your sacrificially loving him enough (even when you didn't know the full extent of the care he would need) ultimately is a gift to many.  Abe is being used to extend the Kingdom.  Soli Deo Gloria!
