On another note, our sweet Sydney made her goal! For those of you who do not know, she has a tremendous heart for the orphan. God has called upon her to take care of the fatherless and she is doing just that. She wants so badly to travel back to Africa to bring her brother and sister home when I go. We cannot afford that so she decided to raise the money herself. She had a birthday in August and asked for money to put in her PLANE TICKET jar. She dogsat, made bottle cap magnets and chokers, and put every penny she could find in that jar. God has blessed her tremendously! This morning she needed $200. A dear friend texted today and wanted to know what she needed still. I texted back the answer. Her response, "Done. I'll bring a check to her." WOW!! I cried as I read it. So many have given up for her to go back to minister to the orphans. As I told Sydney, she cried, too. She was so stinkin' excited I thought she would choke on her drink! Thank you, dear friends, for helping her live out God's plan for her life. She will continue to sell those bottle caps for the orphans. All money from them will now go into feeding the children and drilling wells. Clean water, food, medical supplies. These are her goals. And her biggest goal: a new orphanage with schools and lots of God's love. She prayed today for God to give her a new t-shirt design and He did. We are working on it and it will be out soon! I think you'll like it!

We love our agency!
Our POA delivered our new court decree yesterday. He is fast and we adore him! Then, today we received an email from the Embassy saying they received our CLEAR court decree. They think they have everything they need and we should have an approval by mid-month. Can you hear me praising God from here? Closer and closer to bringing our babies home. Thank you for praying with us. We appreciate you so much!
