"Adventures, I used to call them. I used to think that they were things the wonderful folk of the stories went out and looked for, because they wanted them, because they were exciting and life was a bit dull...But that's not the way of it with the tales that really mattered, or the ones that stay in the mind. Folk seem to have just landed in them, usually...I expect they had a lot of chances, like us, of turning back, only they didn't. And if they had, we shouldn't know, because they'd have been forgotten."

Pray for good news today!

From our yahoo group....

The Kyrgyz Parliament is supposed to hear recommendations on adoptions at this meeting. Please pray for that meeting.9 pm on Wednesday night (central time) is 9 am in Bishkek. Please join us in prayer at that hour. None of us is very sure what will come of this meeting. Please pray that the families who are waiting will gain some clarity as to where this situation is going and that compassion for these children is what prevails as the leaders discuss these matters.

There are 65 families who have been matched with children in Kyrgyz, and are waiting to go back to get them. Some have been waiting over a year! I just can't imagine their heartbreak. Its hard enough to be sitting on paperwork hoping that things will begin moving again... I just can't imagine having my child being around the world and no idea when you can go back and get him/her.

I pray that today we hear good news, that the meeting went well, things were taken care of, and that adoptions will continue... especially that these 65 children and their families can be reunited forever.
