Welcome Home!

Many months ago I asked you to pray for my friend Paula & her family as they were in the process of adopting twins from Ethiopia!

Well, after many, many months of excitement, heartache, joy, fear and a lot of prayer... Candace Selam & Sarah Fikir have made the long journey from Ethiopia to Nebraska, USA!

Thank you to all who lifted up their voice in prayer along w/ me for my friend!

Please visit Paula (here) and read a bit about the trip and see pictures of these darling girls and the family God chose especially for them!

... and Paula... Happy Anniversary to you and Tom!!!

Love you!!! K

Hi Friend! What great news this is. I'll head over to their site now. Our dear friends are awaiting travel confirmation for their 2nd trip to China to adopt again. How exciting.

You were on my blog just as I was adding all the gadgets (blogroll, etc)... love getting new scenery but it takes time figuring out all these gizmos! :)

Have a great day! Better get off of here for now. I'll email you later.... loved hearing about your summer!!!

Hugs,
Kim

Babies - precious gifts from God.

Great news! I can imagine that Nebraska holds a culture shock all its own. I'll be thinking of them as they all transition to a new life together.

What happy news! I've popped into their site a few times to follow along. I'll keep them in my prayers as everyone settles in at home.
