Follow our adoption journey to our daughter- Aerie; whom God brings from Ethiopia, Africa.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Ephesians 3:20
"Sometimes I would like to ask God, why He allows poverty, famine, and injustice in the world when He could do something about it... but I'm afraid He might ask me the same question." Anonymous

Update on Viola our sponsored child
is the Ugandan child
we sponsor through
Compass in my Heart
She and her sister-Rittah moved in with the missionary because her Grandmother could not afford to feed them. I received this post from Christie(the missionary) today:
Sweet Rittah. We're fostering her and her sister, Viola. Viola's sponsor sent us some money to get them both clothes, as they came into our home with nothing but the outfit they had on and their school uniforms. They were malnourished but are quickly eating us out of house and home. Last night, as I sat on the other end of Skype Video, I watched as George hand Rittah a new shirt, size 10/12, but only because she's so tall for a 7 yr old. Wanna guess what size shorts she wears? 3T
In America we find it hard to believe that a 7 year old wears a size 10/12 shirt but is so thin she is in size 3 toddler shorts, but this is the reality for the kids in Bugaboo Village.
