This morning we went to our local park to celebrate the fact that the Lord has meshed Darwin and I together as a family with the five children he has placed under our care. It was a joyful time of zip-lining, swimming, picking fruit, running, and playing. We breathed deeply of God´s grace in a time rich in change and new beginnings. Tomorrow Jason and Gleny will enter a private Christian elementary school for the first time (the Honduran school calendar is February-November), and tonight our dear sister Jenae will return home after spending six weeks visiting her family in the States. With time we will learn what our new special-needs son, Josue, needs from us, and we are on the cusp of beginning a new year of homeschool with our two eldest daughters and a few kids from our neighborhood. Hang on tight!
