"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

We are so proud to introduce the two newest Stutzmans-
our children, Hailegiorgis 12 and Bethlehem 7. Haile
(pronounced "Hi-lay") and Bete ("Beh-Tee") were officially our children June 12th and we are hoping that in 4-6 weeks we will return to Ethiopia to pick them up and bring them home!
Here is when we met the kids for the first time! They hugged us right away and the FIRST day when we left, they called us "Dad & Mom"!!

MEETING HAILE:




Love Adam's face in this one!!! Precious!





HAILE MEET'S NOAH



LOVE THE LOOK ON ZACH'S FACE!!

MEETING BETE-SHE WASN'T TOO SURE AT FIRST, BUT OVER THE THREE DAYS, SHE WARMED UP QUICKLY!
















BROTHERS RIGHT FROM THE START!!!


EVERYWHERE THEY WENT THEY HELD HANDS-TOO CUTE!




SHOWING ME HER ROOM-THE TOP BUNK IS BETE'S BED

WE GAVE THE KIDS PICTURE ALBUMS WHILE WE WERE THERE OF OF OUR FAMILY AND OUR HOUSE-THEY LOVED LOOKING AT THEM-


Outside of orphanage gate:

HAILE HAD MADE THIS FOR US-COUNTRY FLAGS WITH ENGLISH PRINTING AND A MAP OF THE WORLD. I LOVE HIS HANDWRITING-SO NEAT!














CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK AND BRING THEM HOME!!

"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
