This is truly AMAZING!

I am going to cut to the chase as I can not hold my astonishment. Zane and Ethan, along with tree natioanls, traveled deep into the bush today to meet Ethan's extended family/clan. On a side note, they traveled 10 hours yesterday and 5 hours today just to reach the village. We were told very little about his relatives. We knew his mother was killed by the rebels and that his father died of a medical condition. We were told his seven siblings were all dead. What a shock, to say the least, when my husband got out of the cruiser today to face three of Ethan's siblings, ages 7, 6 and 5. Each looking exactly like Ethan. It was not long, said my husband, before everyone was weeping, Ethan included. It was like his little spirit new--although he has never met them. The Grandma, who is looking after the three siblings, told Zane that she prayed for someone to take Ethan. We were that answer to prayer. She then proceeded to ask Zane if we would be willing to take these three siblings. WHAT??? My heart says, YES, let's do it. But of course, I need to seek the Lord. Please seek HIM with us.

To be continued...
