Sweet Amelia

Something is wrong with blogger this morning -- I can't upload images.  Not that I'm allowed to post images of Amelia anyway, and that's who I wanted to tell you about. 

Two sweet mamas from my home town of Birmingham are currently in Uganda to bring home their sweet babies. I have never met Michelle and Toria in person, but that have shown me so much love by sending updates on our Amelia. (As has another sweet mama from California who is also in Uganda.) On Saturday, we recieved the most precious pictures of her with braids that looked a bit like a mowhawk!! She is so stunningly beautiful, and it makes my heart soar to see her with bright eyes and a smile.

We hear that she is a happy girl. I have taught Caroline to thank Jesus for this every night.  Not every baby fares well in even the best group home. Many of these children are having a hard time. Please pray for these babies!

We just know exactly what it's like to be helpless and waiting. So glad to help ease that burden for you! Much love, my friend...
