Movin' In ... and Movin' On!

Today was a big day... we finally got Aaron moved into his new room today. I still have a few finishing touches, but he will sleep in his new digs tonight!! "Praise the Lord!" Here's a picture of him movin' in.
Now we're movin' on to the next thing...

Oh yea... I almost forgot... WE ARE GOING TO ETHIOPIA TO PICK UP OUR CHILDREN!!! We have an Embassy date on April 10th! We will meet our children for the first time on Monday, April 9th. We plan to have our children home on April 14th. So many have offered prayers and support throughout this entire process... God is always faithful... Thanks to all who have generously offered donations. Here's a small sampling of what we are able to take with us for the orphanages we visit:

Boxes of Granola Bars
Medical Supplies
Toothpaste
Toothbrushes
Combs
Soap
Socks
Dozens of Pencils
Bandaids
Ointment
Pain Reliever
Stuffed Animals
Frisbees
Jump Ropes
Matchbox Cars
Coloring Books
Crayons
School Supplies
Happy Meal toys
Soccer Balls
... and clothes, clothes, clothes!
