A celebration of no small measure is upon us! Our son celebrated his 4 month birthday yesterday in a Gladney foster home in Addis Ababa. "Miraculous moment?" you ask. Yep! Who other than our amazing Father could weave together the lives of family in small town Texas and a young mother in ET? Knowing 70% of the births in ET go unattended, who other than God could put it on this mother's heart to provide care for her unborn son and seek out a hospital for delivery? Who, other than our Lord, could portray such a perfect picture of a parental love so sacrificial as to give the most precious part of oneself? When a young lady in ET was faced with her own limitation, God found opportunity to make Himself known to a her, to little boy, and to a family waiting to love him. As said by Denver Moore, "Our limitations are God's opportunities." Thank you Mr. Moore for reminding us that the limitations of a poverty struck nation offer God opportunity to make Himself known!!! Happy Birthday, Baby-Opia Knight. We are hopefully waiting for God to make ready the day the ocean no longer separates our family.
