Introducing Josiah Basten

It is with great joy that we annouce we have accepted the referral of Boimah Mambu - 2yrs 9mos. We have chosen the name Josiah which means "Yahweh supports" - and we are going to need all His support and more as we try to raise him to Love and Serve Our Lord. Kim and I are very excited! We liken it to going to the hospital for that first ultrasound, when you count 10 fingers and 10 toes. There is some relief in knowing, but now the real difficult waiting begins. So each time we eat or lay down our head, we will wonder about Josiah, and if his basic needs are being met and if he's doing OK. We have great confidence in our God's provision for Josiah, and are very thankful for AoH and the wonderful care they provide. So thanks for checking and we'll keep you posted as we know more.

Check out our other post from yesterday for more info.

Love the name! Two "J" names. Now you'll be like me with Abby and Anna- (they answer to both).

I hope they can give him some good nutrician because he is tall but such a small little guy.Ohhh I can't wait to give him a squeeze.

Happy Adoption Class!
