Tariku's First Birthday is tomorrow...WOW!

We can't believe it!.... Tariku's 1st Bday is TOMORROW!

Thought I'd post this article link. (below) Several days ago we got a call from a local reporter who wanted to publish our story about Tariku's adoption an­d the Birthday Party/Fundraiser we're doing on 11/22 for AHOPE AIDS Orphanage . AHOPE has a home office here in the US, but their Ethiopian Care Center works closely with the CHSFS Care center where Tariku was.

Our fundraiser event is on Nov. 22 from 10-12 EST. We're expecting many friends, and many others from our community that wish to learn more about adoption and investing in AHOPE to help HIV+ Kids. We will have community leaders, adoptive families, those interested in adoption, and financial supporters to help others adopt too. We'd appreciate prayer for that event, and we'll let you know how it goes.

If you aren't aware already, we've just submitted our application (about another 12mo process) to bring home a second son from Ethiopia. He will be 3-5yrs old... so between Sasha and "TK" ;)... We don't know who he is yet, but the Lord is caring and preparing him now.

Love to all, Pete... for the rest.
