The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

We Have A PASSPORT Baby!!!!!!!

As I was in the shower a few minutes ago I could a "thud thud thud" just outside my bathroom door. I knew what it was: the sound of little feet jumping and dancing around our room, to the tunes coming through the speakers on our computer. They were dancing in praise...to just that. Praise.

We got it. (And we've nearly got HER.)

Today we received Makeda's passport.

She's beautiful.

Those sweet little ears stick out more than I remember from our meetings just over a month ago. Those curls - more abundant than nearly five weeks ago. Oh, they are perfect.

She is perfect.

And she is one giant, nearly final step away from coming home.

WE'VE GOT A PASSPORT!!!!!!!!!!!!
