News From Uganda

I am soooo sorry for the delay in relaying any news from Africa….
the waiting drives us crazy as well!
And trust me…the second they give me permission to post Finn’s picture? Ha! That will be the post done in absolute record time! 
Anyway, the news from Uganda is that court went super well.  They are promising that as soon as they hear that ruling papers have been granted they will tell me so I can tell you.  They are so appreciative for all the praying you guys have been doing for them. 
They called and were telling me about going to tour Finn’s orphanage. One of the mamas ran and grabbed Finn out of Abi’s arms and ran off to show him to everyone. As soon as that well meaning mama did that, that sweet baby boy started to wail and wail and wail. He did not calm down until Abi was able to snag him back. Apparently Finley Lane is attaching quite nicely!!
I got an email that Abi got quite bit up {although Ryan says she has not complained at all} by something. And little Finn has quite a  nasty cough and so they were asking us to pray.
They are back in kampala awaiting the ruling papers.  Thank you again for praying. Mimi’s heart is overjoyed…we are officially a  multi-generational adoptive  family…and that, my friends is the best legacy we could leave!  
Time to build a fire….brrrr…mighty windy and chilly over here at our mountain home…no doubt summers gone. waaaaaa

  7. Linny,
    I just discovered your blog and so wish I had sooner! I LOVE your Memorial Box Mondays idea and have been thinking of starting something like that based out of Deuteronomy!
    Anyways I'm so interested in learning more about your daughter's adoption in Uganda as we are in the middle of adopting from Congo! I can't email you because I don't have outlook. If you could email me or stop by my blog I would be SO grateful!

    "Congo, Here we Come!"
