Some Sad News… . . . from Rod Riek: Last Saturday switching flights in PHL, Barb stumbled in the jet-way and suffered a catastrophic knee injury . . . She had emergency surgery Sat night . . . to save her leg and life. So far so good. She's recovering OK. . . . We have a long road to travel. Pray for Barb and the rest of us. "
Please keep Barb, Rod and their family in your prayers. If you wish to send Barb a note of encouragement, for the next couple of weeks you can send it to:
Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania Room 1043 – Barb Riek 3400 Spruce St Philadelphia, PA 10104
Some exciting News…
. . . from Lucas Klocke and Lori Slocomb:
After over 3 years of waiting, Lucas Klocke and Lori Slocomb are overjoyed to announce that they are in the process of adopting a newborn baby boy! On Aug 4th, we received a call that we were selected to be the adoptive parents for a baby born just four days prior. We named him Oren Andrew Klocke. He was born 6 lbs, 8oz and 19 3/4" long. Oren is a healthy, happy, and amazingly content baby and has been doing very well over the past few weeks.
St. Mary's has been profoundly supportive of our adoption plan and we are really excited to introduce you all to Oren. However, we are technically foster parents right now until t . . . sometime in September.
Until then, we ask that you keep our family and Oren's birth-parents in your prayers over the coming weeks.
