Yes! 19 Grandchildren...

Several months ago I had mentioned that I wanted to share an adoption story from our own family. Well now since my SIL has shown their faces, I thought I would go ahead and share!

Roddy & Jenny have been in the adoption process since early summer (at least that's when we heard of it). Jenny called and asked Larry and I if we would be their "god-parents" (to explain it well) if something were to ever happen to them. Without hesitation, we said yes!

This is Roddy & Jenny's family now....

Meet Alemtsehay, Ethiopia & Kaleita-they are sisters

Roddy and his girls!

Roddy just went over this past week for the court date and got to meet them for the first time! They are hoping to bring them home in February! They fly RIGHT through our airport by our house, how neat is that!!! We won't be able to meet them since they have to go through SO much paperwork and all the changes they'll already be going through but we'll def be able to see them for the holidays next year!

So! That makes 19 grandchildren for Larry's side of the family... and zero for ours LOL!

Jenny is pregnant with another boy so they will have 9 children by April!

I have always thought it would be such an INCREDIBLE thing to save a child, bring them up in a godly home and give them a life that they never would have had-you never know, that child may go to the mission field one day and lead hundreds of souls to Christ. If the Lord never chose to give us children of our own, we would pray about adopting.

I'll be back later today for pictures from yesterday!
