Mass Armadillo Exodus, What does it mean?

Everywhere I go I see armadillo carcasses…along the sides of busy highways, rural roads…the armadillo’s are moving. Studies show that often animals know that geographic events are going to happen before they do. So what does this all mean?

It means that I’m enjoying messing with you and that Armadillos may not be the brightest crayon in the animal crayon box. Yep, had to use it! I mean how could I resist using the title, “Mass Armadillo Exodus, What does it mean?”.

Really, I just wanted to share that God has very quickly moved our Dossier (adoption paperwork) onto Ethiopian soil. On September 14th, 2009 Fed Ex delivered our dossier to Ethiopia where they will translate it and deliver it to the courts. We are ready to wait for our little ones officially. We look forward to sharing with you our official “wait date”. Though the official wait is 5 to 6 months once we are on the wait list, we know that’s God has His own timing and, just as with our other wonderful journeys, our children will be ours in His time.

Praise God that we are one-step beyond where we were even two weeks ago! God is moving and this journey is such a joyous adventure!

That God has seen to bless our wonderful friends with approval of their home study. and that more sweet children will now find their forever family!!!
That God is leading our lives. It doesn't matter if it's easy or hard, SOO COOL!
That God provided the funds through some WONDERFUL means to submit our dossier and begin our wait!!!

Immediate Adoption Process Prayer Requests:
*That God’s hand is on the paperwork, that they proceed with not a glitch, getting translated and registered with amazing speed.
*That God brings our newest children home quickly.
*That God blesses us with the funds as we gather them to complete the next step of this process (accepting the referral of the twins when the time comes).

All Adoption Prayer Requests:
Please Pray…..
*For these little ones God has chosen to place in our family…for their physical and emotional health in a difficult place.
*For their biological family…that God has His hand on them and brings them peace in whatever they must face.
*That God has His hand on this adoption, guiding us, bringing peace, and financially providing. That the funds pour in like water in a surge of blessing.
*Last, though it may seem a bit premature, please specifically pray that once we are referred our little ones, that they come home quickly and pass court the first time (many are starting to have multiple court dates and a LONG wait until travel). The Ethiopian government is being very cautious and caring with their wonderful children though and for that we are so thankful.
*Lastly, that we have peace and not stress, trusting God in every step.

Also, please join us in prayers for four beautiful Christian families and five sweet children who are facing obstacles above and beyond what a adoption process usually looks like. Governments will literally have to move for these older and special needs children to come home. Families are waiting for them and we are SO excited to see God work in these lives and these governments to bring these adoptive blessings home!

Olivia Mame (Ethiopia)-I would like to ask your prayers for a little sweet young girl in Ethiopia named Olivia Mame. There are some very immense road blocks, serious ones, that have to be conquered in order to finish the adoption of this precious young lady.

Jubilee (China)- A Christian family is struggling through major hurdles with their international adoption from China. Please pray for this family and for the government to move to bring her home.

Daniel (Liberia)-A little one with hydrocephaly awaits his family. Please pray that Daniel does not deteriorate farther and that people in authority to move this case feel the passion to see this through quickly.

Ronaldo and Julia (Guatemala)-For years this family has been trying to get their beautiful future children out of Guatemala. Every time it seems close there is another glitch. Please pray with us. Please pray that EVERY problem is resolved and every piece of paper has the perfection only God can give.

In the joy of following our Heavenly Father, we sometimes choose to proceed with a whisper, a verse, or a downright matter how we follow Him, the momentum that follows is like nothing we've ever experienced before.

Join the is a beautiful place to be. It's not always easy, but then the best things never are.
