In case you were wondering, Ernesto did not affect the orphanage. They experienced some high winds and rain, but there was no damage. All the children and the facility are safe and sound.
I wanted to Praise the Lord for this and encourage you about the power of prayer. The four mom's currently adopting from Three Angels, in this area, meet once a week for prayer. We pray over the adoptions, the safety of the kids, Three Angels and any other needs expressed. We have specifically asked the Lord to protect the Orphanage during this Hurricane Season and this week we were able to see His Hand at work. I am so thankful we serve a God who hears and answers prayers. His Word says to make our requests known with thanksgiving. He wants us to ask Him for the things we need and thank Him for doing it!! THANK YOU LORD!!!

Today we went to Garvin Park for a Pictures in the Park Fundraiser. Todd and Kristina Burnett, friends of ours, are adopting a little boy from the same Orphanage and since Todd is a professional photographer they had this event today to help with the cost of their adoption. The kids had fun and Todd, as usual, did a great job. If anyone is interested, he is doing this again in October and may have one for us in September at Hornady Park in Petersburg.

Hello all! I wanted to let you know of the progress concerning the adoption. This week one of the directors of TACR is in Haiti and will be submitting our files to the DHS (Department of Homeland Security). Their job is to determine if Noah is indeed an orphan and can be brought to the US. Obviously he is and we are believing this will proceed quickly. We are praying and believing he will be home soon. We are sooooooo excited and ready to have our family together!! Please be praying with us that the Lord will continue to give us favor and will cause the remainder of the paperwork to process quickly. We love you all and will continue to keep you posted. Be ready, we are going to have one big party when he comes home!!
