For those of you who haven't already been following along with Allyson and Ryan's blog: A Hope Found (click to follow link) I want to introduce our newest little nephew, Samuel Matvey! He is still in an orphanage in Russia, but a few days ago he officially became a Howard. They still have a long wait in Russia until they are able to travel home but I just wanted you all to see what a cutie he is! Take a look at their blog for the whole story and be amazed at God's faithfulness to those who trust Him with their lives. Pray for Allyson and Ryan and their time in Russia- they are still only able to visit Samuel for another week and they are missing the other kids a lot as well. We miss them too! We can't wait until we can all be together to celebrate this precious little boy joining the family.
We love you Ryan, Allyson, and Samuel! Come home soon!
"I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you."
