**I'm also grateful to all the people requesting to see the waiting children through Ordinary Hero... *There is a precious 6 year old boy that is fairly new from my Wes's orphanage...he is SOO cute!! He still waits!!! *9 yr. old "M" from Wes's orphanage still waits too...He has such a unique and amazing story...I blogged about him a couple of days ago! *There is a sister pair that I put LL's bows on that still waits!! They are so sweet and so deserve a family...They are something like 11 and 7!!! Most of their friends have been chosen and are leaving...I would SO love to see them find their forever family too!! * Little "H" from Wes's orphanage that has special needs still waits too!! I've blogged about him before too!! He broke my heart while I was there in Ethiopia!! *And, as far as I know..the brothers from LL's orphanage that I met while i was there are STILL waiting too!! They are healthy and are 8 and 4!! All these kids I have personally met (well except for the new 6 year old boy that just arrived at Wes's orphanage)!! I'm SOO appreciative of YOUR prayers for these precious children that WAIT!!
***Ok..I'm also SO grateful for this 3 year old cutie boy that won't let me BLOG without sitting on my lap!!

Yes, i've been blogging for a long time now!! :) I even had someone email to let me know that they PROGRAMMED our court date into their phone calendar to remember to PRAY!! So sweet!! :) Just wanted to stop and let you all know that my heart is FULL of gratitude for you all!! :) Happy Thursday to you all, kj
