Amy’s in Ust!

My dearest friend, Amy, is in Kazakhstan right now, in the final stages of an international adoption.  I would like to ask for all of your prayers that God give her a clear sign which child(ren) she is meant to bring home.

This has been a really long road so far.  We’re cheering you on, girlfriend!
