Another Orphan No More

I'm feeling so overwhelmed right now thinking about God's goodness and how he takes us through these beautiful journeys and allows us to witness his amazing love. Two families that we are very close to are adopting from Ethiopia. One family" the Oakes" met their sweet boys for the first time last month. Days before they left God did something beautiful and unexpected in our other friends life "The Coloumbes". Both of these families are good friends and are in the same small group at our church. Just days before the Oakes were getting ready to board a plane. The Coloumbes get a referral for a 6 year old beautiful girl. This allowed them to put together a care package and have the Oakes deliver it to their new daughter. The Oakes were able to tell this sweet girl that she had a family coming for her. they brought back pictures and video. The Coloumbes left this morning to go to Ethiopia to meet their daughter and to let her no she is an orphan no more. Their oldest child will finally get her wish of having a little sister. I love how God brings us in on his wonderful handi- work. Here is a link to both of these wonderful families blog.
