What a busy weekend it has been arranging our home, dealing with my son's high fever and strep throat, and this morning celebrating Davids' birthday!! What a special time it was for our family this morning....as we called Latvia and sang Happy Birthday to him! He SHOUTED with laughter when we finished and he was so thankful. He was very excited and wanted to talk to each of us. He had lots of questions to ask and details of his birthday to share with us. He said that this was the best birthday ever! I had to fight back the tears when he told us that he would be waiting and waiting for us to come to Latvia. Maybe we will have a travel date soon. I am so thankful God called our family for this journey.
Please be praying for Peter....as I still have not spoken to him. He was still away at school and not at the foster home this weekend. We miss him so and he doesn't know all of our good news. I haven't had the opportunity yet to tell him that we received an official referral to come to Latvia. He will be so happy as well and I know that he will be glad to have a brother that will speak his language. My heart is full and I know that God will take care of all the final needs of our family. He has overwhelmed me with Christian love and has shown me his mighty power. God is all I need........all of the time.
Thank you all for the posts that you have made each day! I promise that I have read all of them....and thought of many of your families in my quiet time. Thank you for sharing with me in this wonderful journey. I am blessed to now call you friends!!
