Missing Daniel

We had our Thanksgiving family dinner at church last night. It was a great time of fellowship and great food. VERY LITTLE could have made it any better. WELL, one "little thing" would have made it a whole lot better.........yes: Daniel in my arms and in his outfit which matched the one Baby Charlie wore to the dinner. Hannah and I picked these little "Thankful for Mommy and Daddy" playsuits out way back in August! I was afraid Daniel's would be too small and the one for Charlie looked so BIG. Last night, Charlie's was actually too short and Daniel's was painfully empty.

His bouncy seat looks pretty empty too...........

His Ghanaian Habitiat for Humanity elephant looks a bit under-played with

The OSU warm-up suit I bought for our flight back home is ready to be packed. His church clothes are ready for him too............




Look at his sweet face..lookat his t-shirt...."ado(red)" ADORED... YES HE IS!!!
WE continue to pray that the snippets of good news , progress reports that slip out of Liberia and communicated updates through email truly open the doors for Daniel to be home by Christmas. IT IS POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!
