Amazing . . .


The most precious gifts since our referral have been traveling families that have taken photos for us.  They give us a peek into our daughter's life, her personality, her journey.  We hope to return the favor to other families as we travel.  So to you waiting families! ... please just email us and we'll be happy to make arrangements.  It is truly AMAZING what the Lord has done on this journey ... both for Arsema, in giving her life .... then joining our lives together.  We wil never get over this miracle.  So enjoy the pics!, I've been saving them for this splendid day.  (note: the first pic is of her at nine months old, when she went from the orphanage into the Gladney care center)
