1, ON RECEIVING NEW CHILDREN INTO MARANATHA CHILDREN’S HOME

 

We had the second appointment with the young mother who wants to give us her 4 year old girl. She brought her documents, which all look good and she brought the child as well. We again spoke to her about the seriousness of giving her child for adoption and we as well took them to the lab for some lab work on the little girl. We will get the lab work back perhaps today or tomorrow.

 

The mother wants to have the little girl baptized in a catholic ceremony before she will have the child enter the crèche. So we have set another appointment to take place before December 15th to make the final decision if we will take the child into the crèche.

 

2, ON THE MISSIONARY WHOSE PLACE WAS ATTACKED BY THIEVES

Yesterday I called the missionary to see if there was anything that I could do. She said that the main thing is to keep on praying. She did have a group scheduled to come in the day after the thieves attacked the mission. All but one member of the group canceled; but the missionary is super encouraged that the one did come. PLEASE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE MISSIONARY AND FOR THOSE IN HER MISSION.

 

A GOOD ONE

 

Ally (now named Grace), who recently left us for her new home in New Mexico, is having some issues about playing with her older brother.

 

Her adoptive mom writes:

 

Right now, the biggest challenge is that Grace strongly favors girls over boys. Perhaps she is trying to re-enact the “older girls” scene for comfort???  At home, she wants to have as little interaction with Isaac as possible… This afternoon Grace wanted to play exclusively with Joy, but Joy refused to ditch Isaac, asking that Grace join them instead; Grace sat alone outside for over an hour. On a lighter note, Grace told Joy, “Jesus would want to play with me.”  Isaac was quick to point out, “Yeah, but Jesus is a boy.”

 

 

TAKE AN ISAAC

MOSQUITOES

 

It seems, according to Beth, that we are having a lot of mosquitoes around these days. So if you are heading our way, it would be a good thing to bring some mosquito spray stuff for your skin. Be sure that it has at least 30% deet as the stuff with less than that is just liquid refreshment for the mosquitoes.

 

BOOKS

    Why did Ally have her name changed to Grace? Does that happen with all the adopted children?Denise

  2. John says:

    Good question. Some parents keep the Haitian name and others will use it as a middle name. I guess that it is just the personal preference of the adoptive parents. We had one family that adopted two older girls and they allowed the girls to decide to either keep their birth names or to change them. Both chose to change them.
