Moses!


It is with tremendous joy that we introduce to you…Moses! The nannies describe him as “happy, happy,” but the personality we glimpsed was quiet and thoughtful as he took in the room of strange faces. He has gorgeous chunky thighs, and he must weigh nearly 20 pounds. He has the softest fuzzy curls and his lashes…amazing lashes. He cuddled in and eventually crashed on Alex’s shoulder, and we head back to the care center later this afternoon hoping to discover his infamous laugh.

We have thoroughly enjoyed the group we are traveling with, and we are feeling more “normal” this afternoon – the altitude is still a little rough on my body, but the time difference is smoothing out. We have a full schedule ahead of sight-seeing and a trip south to visit the orphanage where Moses spent his first months. We found out today the name of that orphanage. It is called “Moses.”

Join us today in thanking God, from Whom all blessings flow, for this precious gift.

Praise God!! We've been praying!! And speaking of his amazing lashes, from this picture, I'd say he must have lashes like his Mommy :) Continuing our prayers for you.
