This Is A Big Week

Okay, time to get your follow on. There's some seriously exciting happenings going on this week for some of my favorite bloggers.

Love, Laughter and Laundry has left the country. They are winging their way to Ethiopia to add two more precious baskets to their already huge laundry room, in the persons of little Amelia and Levi. Please, head over and give them some big congrats and pray for their attachment and bonding to be smooth and blessed by God.

Bushel and a Peck just got another sweet little apple to add to their bushel basket. Little Keira is adjusting, but slowly; and is grieving heavily over the changes she's experienced these last two days. Please pray for them, as they are also physically sick with bronchitis and other respiratory stuff. It's a hard way to travel, and they are weary. (Note: this is a Shutterfly-hosted travel blog, so you may not get to comment on the site if you don't have a Shutterfly account. I haven't totally figured it out yet. But to see pics of the darling new Keira, you can stop by their regular blog, here.)

Finally, one of my most faithful readers and commenters, known to you all around these parts as Aus, is leaving first thing (by that I mean ridiculously, un-earthly early!) tomorrow morning to finish their chase to little Chase. These folks are traveling with two of their daughters, also adopted from Korea and China. They are also hosting a separate blog aimed at kids who wish to follow the journey and get in on the adoption and travel fun.

So click away. Pray for their first days to be full of grace and compassion and love. Pray for strong, secure attachment. Leave a comment encouraging their hearts and spurring them on to continue even in the hard times. Follow their journeys. Visit the beautiful lands of China and Ethiopia, vicariously from the comfort of your own chair. Through the eyes of families longing to welcome these precious ones into their hearts and their homes.

Please bless them with your comments - you'll never know how much the comments and kind words encouraged us on the days we were most homesick and weary of being away from all that was familiar.

And Pray.
