Refresh my heart

I'm still recovering from the stress of this weekend. Zoie was so sick & after an awful diaper explosion, no energy & eyes starting to roll...we rushed up to Urgent Care an hour away. What a blessing. Everyone was in awe over our Ethiopian Princess....I think she was feeling VIP:) We felt relief. Both of us had a flash of our 6 month old weighing only 7 pounds & soooo sick in Ethiopia. Driving up to our pediatrician, she had the same piercing stare of HELP ME in her eyes. We are thankful & grateful for 24 hr. hospitals, pharmacies with the best medication available, and any basic need at every corner.
What a different experience than the last time she was sick in July 08. In Addis Ababa, we drove around hours trying to find a doctor available to help us. We felt lost & desperate.
We pray fervently for our beautiful Ethiopia that God will continue to pour His blessings, miracles & provide healing to such a desperate nation. They are strong & courageous, may they never grow weary.
Well, we have some good meds in her tummy now & hopefully she will start feeling better today.

Christ Jesus, You look down upon the masses of people on this earth and have *compassion* on them. So many are harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:36) Thank You for Your mercy, O Savior, that endures forever.
(Zoie at 5 mo old in TH)

  2. Oh, I hope she feels better soon, and that you can get some rest.

    I've been reading your blog for a while-my husband and I are adopting a 7 month old baby boy from Ethiopia. Could you send me you e-mail address? It sounds like your journey is very similar to ours and you may be able to answer some questions we have.

    We'll continue praying that everyone stays healthy!
