Tejan Update

Good news this week on the Tejan front.

He'll be having his surgery at Shriner's on September 12th.

Things are in motion to get his tickets and transportation arranged.

He'll arrive here early enough to have a pre-op appointment. Not sure of the date on that, but I'm assuming it could be about a week before his surgery.

It's so good to finally have a date. It makes it all feel real.

We're very excited around here to see this answer to many months of prayers.

And SO eager to meet our African son/brother.

Can you even believe it's actually going to happen finally?

Of course, now I'm nesting.

Thinking of all the things I'd like to get done before his arrival.


The timing really couldn't have been more perfect. I'd already asked for the weekend after the 12th off because I was thinking about going to the coast for a crop with my mom. So I'm totally free to be at the hospital... I think that's so cool.

It's been over a year and a half that I've felt the need to pray for Africa.

And I've been praying specifically for Tejan since last November.

Now, in less than two months, he will be living in my home.

I'll be feeding him.

And playing with him.

Washing his clothes.

Managing his appointments.

Getting to know a little boy from Africa.

God gave me a dream.

And now He's letting me live it.



  1. I can't wait to meet him!

  2. So happy for all of you!
    What an amazing experience to be able to share your lives with Tejan!

  3. This will be such an act of God in you, and Tejan, and your family. Who knows what the eternal effects may be?

  4. THis is so cool, Cathy. I will join you in prayer- I know God is going to bless you and your family with this experience so much :)

  5. I am SOOO happy about this Cathy. I have been praying for him and for you and for all the details to work out well. I am so glad things are progressing and that he will soon be here!!


I love it when people talk back...
