One Year with Foster baby!

Our oldest son was born on March 5 and it's also the day we welcomed our little foster baby in to our home last year. We've had her for a whole year! Isn't she a cutie? Shari took the picture above after getting her some flip flops (apparently a female rite of passage?). We can't show her face, but trust me, she's SUPER cute.

She was five weeks old when we got her. She had 12 fractures in her ribs and a fractured leg. I know, that sounds so awful. She cried pretty consistently for the first few weeks. She's a smiley one now...most of the time (sorry Redeemer nursery workers!).

There is a good "chance" (not that we believe in such a thing) that we will be able to adopt her. We appreciate your prayers concerning that.

I told Matthew Rankins Sunday after church, to be a member of Redeemer is the greatest honor the Lord Jesus has ever blessed us with. And to see our congregation living for Jesus, following Him in joyful obedience, is an added blessing as well. What a joy to pray, knowing HIS WILL, will be done, and that you and Shari will fly through this adoption, “always ready to give the reason for the hope that is within you!” No words such as CHANCE here, just your obedient submission unto Him, and His sovereign calling to see this great thing to completion.
What a great added bonus for AJ's birthday!
