You Are the World!!!!

Alemnesh is my daughter's Ethiopian name. Ethiopians speak amharic. Alemnesh means YOU ARE THE WORLD!!! How appropriate. She's not even here yet and she has taken over my world. 3 months to go!!! By the way, she is 5 months old today.

For this CHILD I have PRAYED....

and the LORD has answered the DESIRES of my HEART.
-1 Samuel 1:27

Today I got to see my daughter's precious face for the first time. I learned that she was born August 30, 2009. She is simply beautiful and my heart is filled with joy. I pray the Lord will keep her safe, loved, & healthy until we get there to bring her home. I also pray we are able to pass court without any challenges. I am blessed!
