the fifth reynolds

Our dear friends are at it again.  Monica is en route as we speak to bring home her daughter S from Ethiopia.  Please pray that everything goes well with courts and paperwork and details so they can come home together as planned on Saturday the 23rd.  We live further away from the airport now than we did when she brought her two home early last year, but we hope to make the trip to join the welcome committee again.  There is something so powerful about seeing her sweet face on day one and then seeing how far God brings her in the future through the power of prayer.  If you think about it, please pray for Fred and their four other children back at home while Monica travels.  The newest (11 year old) addition will be an adjustment for everyone.  Praise God for placing his heart for adoption into the Reynolds family.  They aren't perfect but God is using them in a mighty way because they have made their very lives available to be used by Him and for His glory.  We are beyond blessed to know them well and be involved in this chapter of their lives.  Yay!  I can't wait to meet her!!!  You can follow their honest journey of growing their family through adoption here (with names changed for privacy).

Thanks, Alexis! We felt your prayers that week. We are continually amazed at how God heals through families. At one week home, Big Sister is already making huge strides. She learned to ride a bike and (almost) swim. Praise God!
