Happy Birthday, Lizzie!

Lizzie, today at the orphanage, celebrating her Birthday


Happy Birthday to our Lizzie! She turns 15 today and we/she missed another one without her family. Lizzie had just turned 12 when we first met her back in 2007. We celebrated one birthday with her, her 13th back in 2008 when we traveled there to adopt our first three. It was her first birthday party ever with a family. We all had a party for her while she was here this summer and she got a few gifts, one being her new skateboard that she left behind. But the real gift, everyone including her will tell you, is the family she has here and the time she has spent with us. Moratorium vote aside, she will get to live that gift forever come January! Please continue to pray for her and other orphans like her whose new life could be threatened by those who wish to impede international adoption.

Happy Birthday, Sweet Lizzie! May this be your last birthday apart from your family.
We continue to pray with you about this vote.

Happy Birthday Lizzie! Hoping this is the last time you have to celebrate alone. Praying you get to come home to your family very soon!

Heidi and Felix - it will happen! God keeps promising our daughter and you will have yours. When things look impossible, that is when God can do the supernatural.

P.S. Our daughter's birthday is tomorrow.
