Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Together at last!!!

We have Melia! She is so adorable and certainly strong willed! She has been having a rough go so far, but she is tired and will fall asleep quickly. She is also warming up to us. She seems to feel a little more comfortable with me (Michael) so far, which is what the family education lady from our agency said might happen since I do not share the same gender as her special moms. Lauren just fed her a bottle and she downed it in about a minute. I seriously think she weighs more than Addie! She is definitely not 12 months, but more like 7 to 9 months, so her May 14 birth date could very well be accurate.

**Lauren said that they are not able to send pictures at all!!! I have charged her to find a thumb drive somewhere in the city of Addis Ababa!! She has nothing else to do after all. ; )


  1. Oh...thanks for the update! I'm so happy for you guys.

  2. Aimee thanks SO much for keeping us updated!! We just can't imagine how excited Lauren & Michael must be!! And already a "daddy's girl!" LOL!
    Tell them that so many people are praying for Melia to quickly adjust to them...and that we are so happy beyond words for them! ;-)

  3. Awesome! So excited to read this!!! Praying for you guys!

    Phil and Lisa <><
