REFERRAL

Sammy and I have officially accepted the referral of two beautiful sisters, ages approx. 3 and 6 years old. We are overjoyed!!! More info to come as I promise to post as I get it.

Lord willing, they will come home in approximately 6 months.

I wish that I could post their pics; but in an effort to protect their children, Ethiopian law forbids us to post their pics until they are officially our girls--meaning we pass court.

This is such wonderful news! I will keep your family in my prayers. I am inspired by your srength and the endless love that you have available to give!

You are one of the people who inspired me to look for our next step as a family. Thank you for passing along some of your strength...in June, we will welcome a 16 year old boy from Guatemala to our house for his first year of High School. We will be hosting him thru a program called the Guatemalan Student Support Group "GSSG"
