Shout for Joy!

We serve a faithful God.  We got the call today saying we are cleared to go pick up Lilia!!!!!!  We are thrilled and have been crying tears of joy.  We leave Sunday and will be in Ethiopia for almost two weeks.  I truly believe God responded out of the prayers lifted up for our daughter and moved this mountain- even after we were told it was not likely!  We are so thankful and have so much to do.  Alleluia, our daughter is coming home!

**The above pic is Lilia a few weeks ago- she's up to 12 lbs!

HURRRAAAAYYY!!!! SO, SO excited for you guys! I just read the other post this morning and had been praying today, not even knowing how painful and hard this wait must be for you all. And now THIS post!! What a faithful God indeed. He loves to answer the cries of his children :*) Will be praying for your travels and bringing your sweet girl home!
