The start of an epic journey


Our son, Paul, is about to begin an epic journey … the journey to becoming an incredible Dad. His journey began years ago when he and his wife were touched by their experience at an orphanage in Ethiopia. His heart ached . . . seeing the little children missing so many blessings for the lack of a mom and dad . . . humbling and sad, the beginning of a personal challenge . . . to find a way to change the world.
One week ago, he and Andrea got word that they are now, officially, the parents of Elijah! A beautiful baby boy currently living in an orphanage (a transition house, technically) in Ethiopia. Gracious people who’ve recently been there have taken photos of Elijah and shared them with Paul & Andrea. While in Birmingham recently we got to see the collection of images . . . what a beautiful little boy he is! Big brown eyes and smiling happily in most of the photos (if he’s awake, he’s smiling! a few photos were taken when he was sleeping!).
We are so happy to see Paul become a parent! Just you wait and see . . . it’s going to be amazing! God has His hand on Paul’s life. Great things are in store! Bruce and I are really looking forward to meeting Elijah . . . beautiful Gift from God!
