The Orphan Sunday Movie

The Lord Defended, Found, Adopted, Rescued, and Loved us while we were yet sinners...

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.  ~Matthew 25:30

6 month Post Placement

Havilah, Ben, & Judah

Today, is our 6 month Post Placement meeting~ it doesn't seem like it's been that long since Havilah and Benjamin came home!!

Jordan, Eden, Benjamin, Shiloh, Mommy, Havilah, Daddy, Judah, and Bethany.

It's been so wonderful to be able to be apart of my younger siblings' lives as I watch them grow and learn more each and every day.  The pictures that I'm posting are some of the ones that we have chosen to be part of our 6 month picture report.  Please be praying that our meeting today goes smoothly!

Our "Littles"
15 passenger vans are fun (to rent) ~ All 7 of us

We really appreciate all of you who have prayed for us along this journey of adoption.  Most of all we are thankful to Lord for His greatness and goodness to our family.  We pray that we might shine His light through us!
