Hello!  Tortilla makes a great phone

Josue’ is 28 months old now and talking in short sentences. He has a court hearing on the 12th of July and he really needs your prayers.  Please join us in asking the Lord to allow him to return to his birth mother, brothers, and sister.   His birth mom and siblings have been here to visit several times and Josue’ just loves them and vice versa.    Josue’ deserves to have his biological family, so PLEASE, pray that it will happen on the 12th.

Analisa is 17 months old and has developed into a little social butterfly.  Her darling antics capture the hearts of all who meet her   She repeats everything we say and do.  She, too, is starting to put words together, some in Spanish, some in English.  She is still not walking alone, so I took her to an orthopedic specialist that her psychologist recommended. He determined that she needs orthodics to give her more support and stability.  Please pray that this is the answer and that God will strengthen her legs and give her the confidence she  needs to walk without support.  She, has a court hearing on the 14th.  Since she has had absolutely no contact from any family members, we are hoping that the judge will free Analisa to be available for adoption. 


Davy, almost 9 months, is still so cute and chubby, but the best part is that he is still so easy-going.  He can sit alone now, and loves to “talk” and squeal with delight.  He is just about crawling, so let the ” fun” begin!    Because his birth mom and family live so close, they come to visit him every week, sometimes more often.  But they are so poor that I highly doubt they will ever be able to adequately provide for him.  Davy  might be staying with us for a long time and we are plenty OK with that.I can’t thank you enough for the many ways you’ve supported  this ministry.  May the Lord bless you and keep you.
