Parent Meeting in April

Though many people are on spring break, we have decided to go ahead with our April meeting! Cindy and I have just returned for the Joint Council Meeting and Ethiopian Caucas so there are several things to share with existing families. We will also be spending time in prayer for several upcoming court cases. Please join us April 7th at New Song Christian Church on Old Henry Road from 7-9. Interested families that have not yet applied may also plan to attend our informational meeting from 6-7 (please let us know if you will be attending). All ARISE families...please remember to bring snacks and drinks! See you then!

Welcome HOME!!!

Welcome Home to Mekdes!!!!

Please join us in celebrating another arrival home for a precious girl, Mekdes. I actually had the great pleasure of meeting Mekdes last summer during one of my visits. She is truly a girl of beauty both inside and out...such a sweet spirit! I am so happy that she is finally with her family in Arizona who has fought to bring her home for so long!

Just wanted to let you all know that Sirgute is returning from Ethiopia tomorrow with her two newly adopted children, Kalkidan 8, and Elsa 14. All of the Norville's family live out of town and they have few to welcome them home. After all Sirgute has done for our adoption community I thought I would ask if any of you would like to join me at the airport. I know it would mean so much to Sirgute and her husband Mike if they had friends to greet the arrival of their first children together! Feel free to bring signs, balloons, or a marching band!

If you are unable to be there and would rather write a welcome home card, please feel free to send it to our office address.

Time: 8:15 p.m. in the Louisville Airport Waiting Area!!!! See you there!
