More Information

Hey again,
I forgot to mention... the agency we are using for the adoption is the Gladney
Center for adoption out of Texas.
We chose Rwanda because... well... because Buster and I both felt like it was the way we should go :)
Another FYI... We are considered a Pioneering Family, because the agency is one of only two that are working on adoptions from Rwanda. The governement is just now opening up adoptions to international countries. We are only the fourth or fifth family that is on the list for adoptions from there right now, and since it is so new and only one family has completed the complete process and brought babies home, there are a lot of unknowns. Therefore, the process could go really fast or really slow... we really have no idea.

One of the last times I spoke with Josh we talked about our mandate which i know you is part of your decisions: James 1:27 Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

It's a hard time to stand up and stand out and not be corrupted. Thank you for putting feet to the "Word" and for reaching out to others in need.

I'm proud of you and glad to call you friends>

I just "happened" on your blog. We are hoping to have our court date tomorrow and make travel plans to leave within a week or two for our little girl waiting for us in Rwanda. We are using AWAA as our agency. They are in close contact with Gladney. If you would like to check out my blog it is http://www.rjfarrand.blogspot.com Would love to hear from you or help in any way you might need.
