|The youngest picture we have of "Dusty"|

|Brother Johnny with Dusty's Bear|
We recorded all of our voices... which took a while! Carolyn said, "Night, Night!" I said, "Momma loves you!" John said, "Daddy loves you!" Johnny said "Johnny loves you!" Then I said, "We can't wait to hold you in our arms!"
|Momma comforting Carolyn as she tries to wait for the bear to be stuffed|
|Johnny - helping with the stuffing|
|Every bear needs a heart|
|Johnny's favorite part!|
|Johnny was excited that Carolyn was taking a nap - so he could have the beater all to himself!|
|HAPPY BIRTHDAY DUSTY WE love U!|
A birthday should always be a happy celebration. Unfortunately, we have mixed emotions about today. We had hoped to get to Dusty BEFORE he turned SIX. Last week when Johnny realized that Dusty's birthday was coming up he said, "Oh NO! We are not going to get him in time!" You see in this region - when you have something "wrong" with you - you are sent to an institution when you turn six years old. We are praying without ceasing that they do NOT send Dusty to one. Unfortunately there are NO guarantees. So please join us in prayer for our sweet Dusty to stay where he is and that we are able to bring him and Sonya home with us!
