Wes again . . .
Just got off the phone with Beau and it sounds like all is well. While I'm sure a lot has taken place, the most important thing is that Beck and Deshi are now being cared from by their new family. Beau said the handoff went really smooth, that Beck didn't cry at all and that Deshi cried for just a couple of minutes, but is doing great now. It's Sunday morning there, and Beau said that Beck, Deshi, and Hannah were still sleeping while the rest of the crew was up. He did say that Beck and Deshi are eating great, something that sometimes can be an issue as kids adjust. So far, so good. Like you, I can't wait to hear the full story of how it happened!
Beau and Caleb along with Suzanne are headed out today to the city of Gunchire which is the location of the Kidmia orphanage. Apparently, the city is full of monkeys that are in some way tame enough to allow people to play with them, so they'll enjoy doing that and then spend the next 24 hours or so with the orphans of Kidmia. If you're not familiar with this great work, you can check them out at http://www.kidmia.org/.
I asked Beau if there was anything specifically to pray for. He said other than the obvious, not really. His back is doing fine, Hannah is feeling better (although he did say she's had a couple of random minor allergic reactions and they're not sure to what), and Beck and Deshi are adjusting OK so far. So, pray for them and thank God for His grace thus far.
Until the next report . . .
