It's the best I could do...

It was no easy task getting a picture of the 5 youngest kids in their costumes! I'm just happy we got everyone in it, even if they aren't all looking in the direction of the camera!

Samuel is six!

Sam had his birthday last week! He is a big six year old now. He has celebrated several siblings' birthdays since his homecoming, and he fully embraced his special day. It was all things Buzz and Woody for this guy. He really liked being the birthday boy.

In other exciting news, Sam also started school last week. I attended with him initially, but he quickly adapted to the routine. He was also very excited to ride the school bus. Every afternoon when he is finished his lunch, he tells me "Come on! Come on! It's coming! The bus! It's coming!". He is charming everyone who works with him.

Sam's casts will be coming off in 2 weeks, and then he will get his new braces. The best part about that is SHOES! This little boy desperately wants to wear shoes, and I can't wait to get him his first real pair!

Sam is such a blessing. I was overcome with emotion on his birthday, thinking how different all our lives are this year! He had no idea last year we were even coming back to bring him home. So thankful for the privilege of being his mom.

Our Mighty God!

The mission is fully funded! Thank you, Lord! Thank you to everyone who contributed and spread the word. We were so moved to watch that ChipIn climb higher and higher. Wow! God is so good! Oh how He loves these precious ones.

Psalm 72:12-14
He will rescue the poor when they cry to him; he will help the oppressed, who have no one to defend them. He feels pity for the weak and the needy, and he will rescue them. He will redeem them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him.

Please continue to PRAY earnestly for sweet Katerina! Pray for her family, pray for my husband, and pray for the medical team that is prepping to care for her soon. We are so blessed to share a part in this amazing journey.
