To Pickles

Darling Pickles:

My sweet child. I have yet to look into your eyes, or to hold you, but I knew from the moment I saw you that God intended for you to be part of this family. We pray daily for you and your caregivers. We pray God surrounds you with comfort and love while we wait for you. Our wonderful church family is also praying for you. We can't wait to bring you home, to hold you, to love you unconditionally, but most important, to raise you in a Godly home, knowing the Word of God.

We pray that God will equip us to raise you, to incorporate your country's history and culture into our own. The pull we already feel for Ethiopia is amazing. We can't wait to experience your home country first hand, and we pray that God will direct us all back to Ethiopia one day, in whatever capacity that may be: as a visitor, a missionary, etc.

We are so thankful to God for giving us the privilege to raise you.

Mom and Dad
