Another Sweet Girl Home

Our close friends have brought home their 6th child! 
The last Mom in our small Ethiopian group..... for now:) 
I think our group might be getting a little bigger with a few new friends wanting to adopt.
 I just love how adoption is contagious! 
Rahel is just one sweet girl, her soul seems so tender and gentle. 
I can't wait to get to know her more but for right now we just share smiles and waves as she seems a little shy. 
Jessica tells me she reads the bible at night right before bed... isn't that sweet.  
Jessica made this journey look so easy as it's her second time... I think she's a pro. 
I do think it was harder for her to be away from her other children this time as she was over there much longer.
The family of 8 finally together! 
Reunited with her friends from the orphanage
This is a before picture in Ethiopia, now everyone in this picture is finally home. God is just so Good! We get to watch them all grow up together in the same town. Here is Rahel homecoming video... 

One of the reasons Jessica was there for so long was to visit Trees of Glory to take them blankets, letters, and care packages from their sponsored families. 
You can read more about their trip HERE and the well project they need our help with. 
Our sponsored girl Tigist 

She got some wonderful pictures of our girl Tigist. What a beautiful girl she is! She was wearing the shirt I had gotten her last time. I don't know if you have ever thought about it but you too should sponsor a child... what a wonderful feeling to being able to watch her grow up into a precious young lady. 
Just blogging about Ethiopia gets me missing it and hoping I can return one day, all those precious children in need I love so many miles away. Until I can return I will always be praying as a piece of my heart is there forever. At least we get to share in Rahel being home as she is an awesome taste of Ethiopia. Welcome home sweet Rahel, can't wait to be a part of your life.
