  1. As I trenched through the mud last spring, I found this verse to be comforting.
    Ephesians 3:20
    Now unto him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
    Praying for you,

  2. Hi Tague and Lisa,
    I think I met Tague a few times at Amani. If I remember correctly, I even talked about Amani on camera. I have spent 10 months at Amani the past couple years. I went to St. Olaf too- that might help Tague remember me a little.
    I live in Minneapolis and happen to love Philip like crazy!!! I was only at Amani for about a week after Zach came in, but think he is gorgeous and sweet too. I was there the day Philip came in and remember loving that we got an older baby. I helped him sip milk from a little cup and remember him eating extra meals. He was so tiny and fragile when he came in, but still could walk a little. I watched him blossom into an awesome little boy and had a really sweet relationship with him. He loved Mama Doreen and when she was sick for a long time and couldn’t come to work, I made sure to give him lots of extra love. He knew that one of the mamas was called, “mama Rachel,” and always got confused that I was an auntie, so called me, “mommy Rachel.” We had a routine where he would point his finger toward me and I would do the same until the tips of our fingers touched. We then did “bonga” (fists touch) And then did a high five. He thought it was so funny! My heart hurts thinking about him- missing him and not being able to watch him be placed into your arms at Amani- seeing the send-off from the mamas. I am so thrilled that he is your son and know your family is the answer to my prayers for him. I am praying him and baby Zach home with all of you and am rejoicing at the work God has done in these kids lives. I would love to someday see them again- after they are settled and you have had family time, of course. All my best to you are your family!!!!
