Caleb's Center Time

Caleb's Kindergarten teacher sent out an email to us this morning with these pictures that Caleb had drawn. Precious encouragement!

Andy and Jill,
I just wanted to share this neat story with you... Caleb was "writing the room" at centers the other day and looked up at me and said "I am going to write a Bible verse." I told him I couldn't wait to see which one he chose. I am attaching the pictures of what he wrote!

Andy's co-worker, Leah, sent this to him from one of Lifesong's family. It is too precious, I just had to pass it on. Praise God for a "visible Gospel" through adoption!

Scott & Susan have adopted 5 children…many with a special needs. Scott is in Ethiopia right now bringing home 14 year old, Letemeskel who is a sibling of two of their adopted sons (one is Levi—see below). Quite the story.

I copied her post below…absolutely precious.

Believing in Levi Nichols

We were driving back home today from the store. It was warm, quiet and both Ethan and Levi were quietly looking out the car window.

Levi said," I like myself like this."
Me " What do mean? "
Levi " I really do believe now that I can talk to God."
Me." Huh."
Levi " I didn't believe it in Ethiopia. I was like 4 or something. Now I believe it."
Me " what do you mean Levi? Tell me more."
Levi, " Every night I say prayer, quietly, in Tigrinya. I say for my sister to come to America. I pray like you say. "
" Now she come to America and I believe God hear me when I talk Tigrinya or English. ."
" My life is good now,..... I believe God hear me."....." I hear him too. "

Levi...." mom why you cry?"
Me " I am proud, happy."
Levi " I do not understand girls cry when day happy."
