Our View on Adoption

Adoption is a wonderful metaphor for our salvation in Jesus. We are all adopted sons and daughters of God, brought fully into His family and loved unconditionally. We hope and pray that we honor God in this journey and come to know more deeply the depth of His love and our true identity in Him through this awesome experience.

"I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty." 2 COR 6:18

Enjoying Bogota with Family

We had a safe and easy trip to Bogota and are enjoying a few days of down time in Mariela's house before moving Thursday to the hotel and our reunion day on Friday (2:30pm). Yesterday, Sunday, Romel and Alejandra and their kids came over and spent the day. It was "cylcovia" in Bogota -- every Sunday they close many major roads to cars and the people get out on bikes, rollerblades, etc.. to enjoy the day. We took a nice long walk with the girls and stopped at a great, public park and recreational area. Bogota has great parks. We came back after a couple of hours with a pretty good sunburn. The weather is crazy these days, hotter than normal by a god 5-10 degrees, probably part of an "el nino" phase. Today we had the first day of "Discovery School Bogota" in the living room, so Camila can keep up with her school work. We hope to arrange a phone call with Johan Mateo later today or tomorrow. Also tomorrow we'll visit Hotel Zuetana for the first time and get prepared for the move on Thursday.

Hi Mike,
I'm glad to know you made it to Colombia safe and sound. I've been enjoying my time in Bucaramanga and looking forward our Entrega Day as well.
Please keep posting, I'd like to keep up with your journey.
I'll keep you in my prayers next Friday @ 2:30 so everything goes smoothly :)
Hugs to the Oakes Family
