Some of you recall my friend Paula who has adopted twins from Ethiopia (I had asked you to pray for her and her family many times).
Well yesterday I had a special treat! I finally got to meet those sweet little girls. They are so teeny, tiny. Their smiles light up a room and those eyes... gorgeous. When I arrived at Paula's mom's home the twins were at the kitchen table with their Aunt Laura writing the alphabet. Paula says they enjoy pushing buttons that light things up... remotes, telephones etc!
Adjusting hasn't been easy, but the Lord is blessing their family. Please continue to pray for Paula and her family as they transition into a new chapter of their lives. The challenges are there, but the blessings out number the challenges!
Before I left I had Paula take a picture of me w/ the girls. Candace Selam is the one with the sunglasses on (I called her Hollywood) and Sarah Fikir is the other twin who was not so happy at the time because her sunglasses needed fixing. Mama was going to take care of that task quickly! ;) They were so cute with their itty bitty ipods that Paula filled with Ethiopian Children's music. (that helped with the flight back from Ethiopia)
I cannot wait to see how the lives of these blessed little ones unfold. A new world, a new family... and smiles as big as the sun! I am definitely buying a plane ticket to Nebraska sometime soon! I miss my friend! I don't think I realize how much until we can have a few moments together when she comes to Indiana.
Yes, yesterday was a double blessing for me... I got to meet the twins and spend time with my dear friend Paula!
Love you Paula!
