Our Second Adoption

Our family recently started our second adoption.  We have told many of our close friends and family, and wanted to publicize it here so that you can know and pray.  We are attempting to adopt at least two children from Rwanda, which sits on the southwest border of Uganda.  So far we have completed some … More Our Second Adoption

Starting and Finishing: How You Can Pray for Us

Our life is full of transitions right now.  At times we feel a bit like Doctor Doolittle’s Pushmi-Pullyu, though in the same breath I must say that we also feel uniquely blessed by the multiplicity of opportunities the Lord has given us.  With everything going on, we would be grateful if you would pray that the Lord … More Starting and Finishing: How You Can Pray for Us

Entebbe –> London –> Los Angeles: A Little Boy Comes Home

Nathan Flook at the U.S. embassy completed Judah’s visa in eight hours on Wednesday.  He met with Cindi at 7:30am, and although his office normally closes at 3:30pm, he extended his day and told Cindi to come at 4:00pm.  When she arrived, the visa was finished.  She is currently spending the night in Entebbe near the … More Entebbe –> London –> Los Angeles: A Little Boy Comes Home

Another Adoption Update: Significant Uncertainties

There probably hasn’t been a time in our adoption process where your prayers were more needed than now.  Although the Lord turned the heart of the judge to give us a positive ruling two weeks ago, uncertainty has prevailed since then. I won’t explain in detail for a few different reasons, but I’ll summarize so as not … More Another Adoption Update: Significant Uncertainties

Court Date Correction, Thoughts on Returning, and Pictures and Video

I arrived back in Los Angeles this morning.  Cindi is still in Uganda for three more weeks and possibly longer depending on the outcome of our upcoming court date.  She emailed me yesterday and told me that our court date is actually on Wednesday, April 25th, not Tuesday the 24th.  There had been confusion regarding the actual … More Court Date Correction, Thoughts on Returning, and Pictures and Video
