Defend the weak and the fatherless; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Psalm 82:3

It has been a while since our last post so we wanted to update you on a few things that took place over the past month.  October has been a month of ups and downs.  Early in the month we were able to take advantage of a beautiful fall weekend by making a quick getaway to Traverse City over the Columbus Day weekend.  The sky was perfectly blue with temps in the 70s all weekend.  We just happened to catch the fall color at its peak as well - a great fall weekend!

We also finished our profile book this past month.  It took a lot of work, but the finished product looks great!  We pray that this book finds its way into the hands of the right person that is carrying our child!  For now though we just continue to play the waiting game.  Our domestic placement could come quickly or take a while.  In mid-October we passed the three month mark since we have been on the waiting list in Ethiopia.

October also brought a significant challenge for our family as Stacey's mom was diagnosed with breast cancer.  We were all extremely numb and concerned when we heard the news.  There were tense days as the doctors could not pinpoint a diagnosis.  We prayed continually and just a few weeks ago those prayers were answered after a successful surgery and good test results!  We are thankful that she is feeling better and on the road to recovery.
