Family News…

10291122_10152701970813919_9195842261775056651_nI’m so happy to finally be able to show you our new little nephew from the Ukraine with love. Andrew arrived with Mandy to be reunited with my brother Leonard and niece Hope last Friday. Our niece Hope is happy to have a little brother. I literally gasped for joy when I finally saw a photo of Andrew and Mandy back in the U.S.A. It’s hard to imagine all the adjustments this little guy and his new family have to make over the next few months and years. The nice thing is that my brother can communicate with Andrew in Russian but they are also transitioning Andrew into speaking and understanding English. Little Andrew has already skyped with our pop in Russian. If God brings this sweet family to your mind please pray for them.

We are fast approaching the one year anniversary of my mom’s death. I will be flying down to Orange County to spend a few days with my pop and some of my family.

Today is Dear’s birthday and I’m so thankful to God for him. Tonight we will celebrate Dear with our kids on this side of the Cascades.

How’s September shaping up for you?
