We shared a big milestone today- Ali Rose is crawling! She gets tired after a few strides- but we are gonna make her practice again tomorrow. The plan is to move everything right out of her reach- she’s not going to like that!

In other news, I’ve referred to her twice today as Lily which is extremely appropriate… I’m already seeing myself at home getting them all confused and calling Jack- Ali Rose, Ali Rose- Luke, Lily- Jack, you get the idea 🙂 We took a long walk this afternoon down to the Nile River and then all around Jinja. It was perfect. I pushed Ali Rose in the stroller and she played with her hands and the straps on the stroller- she’s really easy to please. I am soaking up all her goodness. I also tried to take a nap with her but she wasn’t really use to that and woke up after about 20 mins. ready to play, oops! I won’t make that mistake tomorrow. We are feeling all the prayers and ask you to come alongside us and pray for Monday, which will be a big day for us in regards to the adoption process. My heart is full… Love tonight from Uganda~ Anne & Ali Rose

PS- One more prayer request, that our luggage would get here, it didn’t arrive with us 😦 and just in case you wondered I am giving those cheeks lots of kisses!!!!

  1. Anne, We are praying for Monday. You guys are on my mind first thing in the morning when I wake up so I just pray. We will continue! Praying this for you and Lindsey and your families at home: “And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge–that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Eph. 3:17-19.

  2. Anne,
    Ali Rose is beautiful! I know you are loving getting to know your daughter – it is such a sweet precious time! I gave Jack a hug at lunch on Friday – He promptly told me about your luggage. He said, “You know it is not good to not have your luggage!” I agreed with him and told him God could work that out. Prayers for Monday and for God to protect you both.
    Love, Leigh Ann Marks and family

We miss you so much and can’t wait to meet Ali Rose!
