"But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled.
If it seems slow, be patient! For it will surely take place. It will not be late by a single day." Habakkuk 2:3

I Love Scabies!

I know I know that sounds crazy, but I got a call from our caseworker today and she had a slightly sad tone to her voice-of course my blood pressure went instantly up-with all the friends that we have whose kids in Ethiopia have been admitted to the hospital for pneumonia, "illness that we don't know what it is" "some sort of infection", etc....and with ALL the unknowns in adoption when you are waiting to go to court and hoping that nothing goes wrong to prevent this from happening-YES, I got a little concerned instantly as to why she was making this unexpected phone call-but she said that scabies has broken out in the orphanage and that our baby girl has a pretty bad case of it-but even with that-total RELIEF washed over me and I breathed a prayer of thanks that it wasn't something more serious! Crazy to us Americans-maybe, but not to this one! :-)
Fortunately they have the medications that adoptive families have taken over and left-prescriptions needed for scabies-it is a one to two time cream all over for the night application-so it should be taken care of. I do feel for the poor orphanage workers in that they are now having to wash everything in hot water-and I think our laundry is excessive-I can't even imagine doing it for tons and tons of kids and babies.
Well, just thought I would share this interesting day and that as far as we know (other then being really itchy now) our baby girl -who is now 4 months old, is doing great. We are still on the countdown to now less than 2 months to meet her in person-ya.

"Although it may not always be obvious to us, there seems to be one distinct moment when God begins a new story in each of our lives. He writes words on our hearts that long to be spoken and strain to be lived out. Then with His own great hand, He begins to write the script. Experience by experience through seemingly ordinary days, He supernaturally orders our lives. Only when we look back and reflect on what appeared to have been the ordinary events of life does it become clear what a miracle the Lord has performed." Jan Beazely
