Introducing . . .

Anthony Jianyou Meledeo

I'm sure some of you have been thinking, "Ok, guys, are you going to come up with an English name, cause You You isn't probably going to work well in the U.S." We have always intended to give him an English name but for a while we thought we should wait until we meet him, but then our caseworker asked us to fill out the immigration paperwork and asked for an English name so we just went ahead and gave him one! Adam has been wanting an Italian family name for a while, namely Anthony, and the meaning of this name is just perfect, "highly praiseworthy, priceless". We feel this name is perfect for him. 

We ask that you join us in praying the following for our precious and priceless boy, Anthony.
  • Prayer for his heart as he leaves his foster family. I know his heart will be breaking as will mine. 
  • Prayer for all four of us as bond and grow to love each us.
  • Prayer for his salvation and for us as we seek to live out our faith before him. 
  • Prayer for the transition that is to come which includes his learning English and my teaching him!

"Your love, Lord, reaches to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the skies.
Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
Continue your love to those who know you,
your righteousness to the upright in heart.
May the foot of the proud not come against me,
nor the hand of the wicked drive me away.
See how the evildoers lie fallen—
thrown down, not able to rise!" 
(Psalm 36:5-12, NIV)
