I wanted to let you both know that [his] worker met with him on Friday to tell him that an inquiry had been made and to see if he wanted to visit. She e-mailed me this morning to tell me that he was a bit in shock because he did not ever think he would have another opportunity to be adopted again. He also looked at the pictures and said that you have a nice house, and commented that he liked the idea of being the older brother. He is very excited about tomorrow, and has already called his worker this morning to express his excitement!
He didn't think he would have another opportunity to be adopted. It breaks my heart that a fifteen-year-old boy is in a situation he thinks is hopeless. Please pray for him, that he would see God in us, that we are HIS light shining on him, and that he finds joy by us showing him God's love.
Please pray for us as we meet him, that our nervous excitement is controlled, that we can remember all the things we need to ask and talk about, and that we are all, he and us, relaxed enough to enjoy ourselves as we meet for the first time.
We meet him tomorrow night for dinner.
