An Aunt and Uncle and a Cousin...


... stopped by today while on a layover at the MSP airport on their to Addis Ababa from Portland via, God bless them, Minneapolis, Amsterdam, and Kharthoum. I think they said something about 36 hours one way in the airline system. But they're on their way to pick up their newly adopted son, Noah!

Jodi and Josh already have a new son about Charis's age that they are taking with them to Ethiopia, and two sons they are leaving behind for quite a long time. So everyone who reads this please take a moment to say a prayer for health, safety and peace that passes understanding for everyone involved.

Here are a few more pictures of Charis and Oliver.

Oh, so glad to see they made it there. Cute pictures of Ollie and Charis. We're continuing to pray for them. Aidan thought it was funny seeing Oliver with Charis. He said, "Wait a minute! Josh and Jodi are with Uncle Jon??! I thought they were going to Africa!"

Just found Jodi's "Hooter Hider" (I swear that's the copyrighted name) ... so I hope she's making it nursing the old fashioned way somewhere betwee here and Amsterdam.

Yep, it's a Hooter Hider. Though I'l tell you the story of what WE call it later.
