AK Post # 5: Only 7 More Hours!

I know I just posted a couple hours ago, but I received an exciting email from Jon and Amy that I had to post about.

Jon and Amy meet Jada and Adia at 10 AM on Monday morning. That is 3 AM in Indiana, which is rapidly approaching! I can only imagine how they feel right now. I doubt they are sleeping.

Also, they met a man at the Mekele care center who knew Jada and Adia's father. He was able to give Jon and Amy more information about him and the family, which Jon and Amy were able to get on video. He also agreed to deliver a book with pictures and notes from Jon and Amy to the girls' father. He said that their father has actually come to the care center to visit the girls. WOW... I am crying just thinking about how hard it must be for this man to surrender two beautiful girls he obviously loves to total strangers. I praise God that Jon and Amy had this opportunity and I know it will be precious information to their daughters someday. I'm sure that Amy will post more information about this in the future.

*If you see J&A on a regular basis, I would encourage you to read the letter in the last post if you missed it. Thanks! Kristen
