"Once our eyes are opened, we can't pretend we don't know what to do. God who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls knows that we know, and holds us responsible to ACT"...Proverbs 24:12

Driving on a long car trip Jacob drew this picture in the back seat.
It says "I love you" with the a picture of 4 children holding hands- signed Jacob, Sova and Caleb
and baby
Oh pure sweetness...I will save this picture forever...she's already born in his heart.

We plan on bringing Jacob with us to Ethiopia on one of the trips (we have to go twice!)
I found him at the table with our globe- he was drawing the country of Ethiopia with a cross in the center.  He then labeled the country and wrote,
 'I Love TFT'  'Love Brother'
TFT are the 'possible' initials of the baby IF we end up changing her name (making her Ethiopian name her middle name- but we are ahead of ourselves in this dept anyways!)
Jacob Loves a certain name- regardless of the choice, once again...he's gonna be a great big brother!

Sova has pictures from Jacob in her Life Book that he made for her while we were waiting for her.
Whenever he talked about her he would say, "baby Sova." 
 So funny considering they are 13 months apart!

It is amazing how connected siblings can be before they meet. I love it. I think you are brave bringing Jacob to Ethiopia becuase he is going to want to bring all the children back!!
And that last picture is priceless.
