More Friends Adopting

Beau here. So I mentioned two weeks ago that a couple in our community group, the Butler's, decided to start the adoption process from Ethiopia. So four couples in our community group, and two adopting from Ethiopia. Kind of unusual.

Well, now the Tuckers have decided to jump in as well. Here is their first post outlining how they got to this spot. So four couples in the group and three in the process of adopting. I guess that is kind of unusual...and exciting!

So the last couple....well...Mr. Stanley heads to Burundi with Mr. Butler in July (same town where Tucker and I were last month). Mr. Stanley just doesn't know what God is up to yet! :)

We are so grateful for how the Lord is yoking our community in this uncommon way.

Praying for a call...hopefully soon!

That is very cool. Has the 4th couple decided to find another group or join the fun?? :)

Look forward to seeing you next weekend. Praying for your call to come soon.

This is great guys! ... no doubt your family will be a huge support and encouragement to them, as they will you. We're praying with you for that phone call!!! How thrilled I'd be to get an email in Ethiopia saying to photograph your children!!! :) Blessings, Shelly

It is so awesome how God works these things out. We've noticed this happening in our community, too. It is nice to have other families close by to go through the adoption journey with.

Hi Natalie,

Well, we just got back from Ethiopia and wanted to let you know this fact (since your name came up with the Gladney in-country staff):

Gladney has not forgotten you. Just keep being patient. :)

I want to ditto what Buttercup said. YOU HAVE NOT BEEN FORGOTTEN. Very, very good things come to those who wait. Those people may have to wait more, but still, VERY good things come. Yep. Keep trusting our Father's perfect timing. Doesn't seem perfect to us as humans, but IT IS.
Praying for you as you continue waiting...
love
