I just had to add this to our blog today. This is one of our first children home through our Ethiopian program this year. To be honest, this was a hard week many waiting kids, court challenges, money issues...well, it's all part of it. Anyway, today's surprise photo was such a treat and encouragement. To have visited this precious one in Ethiopia, to know her Birth Mother's heart for her daughter's future and to also know the wonderful family that has embraced her as their see the joy in her face, to understand the peace her birth mother has and to know the love of her family...too much for words.

It just makes it all worth it!
