I just talked to Sue (the head of the adoption agency). As far as we can tell Kaden (whom we formerly called Mengistu) has passed his health tests. Sena passed the medical tests, but they were unable to draw blood to do the HIV tests when Sue was in Ethiopia (a problem they have with babies when they are small). Thus, we have to wait until the orphanage is able to take her back to the hospital 2 1/2 hours away (which is hard in Ethiopia) to see if they can get some blood from her. Please, please pray that she is healthy. We would love to bring her into our family!
You can now view videos of both children on our other website:
The password is still Stacey's middle name (capitalized) and you can feel gree to email me if you don't know it (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is a few steps you have to go through to see the video, including logging into YouTube. The instructions are on the Shutterfly site. (Sorry it is so hard, but we cannot post these things on unlocked websites).
Here is what you can be praying for:
Pray that Sena would be able to have her blood tests soon.
Pray that Sena's tests (specifically the HIV test) would come back negative.
Pray that the process would move quickly, so that they would not have to live in an orphanage for much longer.
Pray that we would trust God and know that he has a much better plan than anything we could even imagine.
Pray that many orphans (from what I understand 5 million in Ethiopia alone) would be adopted.
