In Honor of Bob and Carrie....

At one of the orphanages we have been helping at, there is a special young boy who is dear to our heats. We have had such a burden for him, and that burden is shared around the world. Three years ago, steps were taken so our young friend could have a forever family. A family stepped up and wanted to give our friend the family her deserves.
Then the unthinkable happened. Adoptions were stalled, and the whole adoption community was held in limbo , along with our friend.
Over the years , we have had continued contact with the kids from this orphanage, and have done many small renovations and repairs.. we have taken the kids on outings, and we have brought them food and clothing. We have been able to help with dental appointments medical and eye glasses... Emma has even taught the kids English and art.
The interesting thing is that most of the finances that have helped here have not been from the Kyrgyzstan adoption community , but from a reader that has been moved and inspired by the commitment of Bob and Carrie and their struggle to bring their son home.
Last fall when Bob was here , he helped us to Set up a family room that was sponsored by this same reader.. Then Emma was requested to make this painting for the family room.

Bob and Carrie you have not given up ... you have inspired us...

"but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. "

It has been a great joy for us to get to know our young friend. It has been an honor for us to get to know Bob and Carrie, and it has been a great privilege for us to receive prayer and support from this caring donor.

Oh my word. Oh my word. I don't even know what to say. We deserve no acknowledgement. We love our easy thing to do. We just want him home. I am beyond at a loss of what to say. You are so dear to us, John Wright. Please tell him we're coming one day soon!
