Three best buds

Me and my Papa...Mom was there in Spirit

Sami meeting Papa for the first time

Cindy, Coral and Meskerem (a true miracle...Praise the Lord)

Seggy and the kids...He feels right at home

Bryan on the phone with Ron, who organized the whole van idea...he is looking for the surprise that Ron told him is in the parking garage.

Not a cute cry, but not an ugly one either...choking back tears...God is so good.

Me and my girl Mimi...

My little guys...boy are in trouble

The gang in front of our new 15 passenger van...Praising God

Me and my cousin...

Me, Zona and Lisa...Zona's aka..BFL she did well hiding the van from everyone including my kids..she even lied a bit to keep the secret, so out of her character...but she done good!

Thank you sweet friends for loving God the way you do. Thank you for you love for us and the way you live your lives to honor God. You all mean the world to us, wish you were all there. We are praying for you all, you have been the biggest blessing in our lives.

I'm so moved by your stories and by the pictures of your beautiful new children. They are absolutely precious. I can't wait to meet them. I love the signs people made for the airport - especially the one with the different coutnries and the once stating 147 million orphans - minus three. How blessed your children are to have you and Bryan as their parents. May God continue to be glorified in each of your lives. Love you so much, dear friend.
