What a miracle you kids are--so giving--we are so proud to be mom and dad and grandma and grandpa--we thank God for you all and what He has done and is doing through you. Tegan can come live with grandma if she wants--I have waited 3 yrs for her to be a "grandma's girl!" We love you and love having you close by--see you tomorrow for Charli's art thing!

Thank you for the video and for posting what post adoption is really like. Just sitting here crying and thanking the Lord for your journey and begging him to let us have our journey...
It is amazing to see Noah and Charli so big! It's been 5 years since we have seen you all! I love you and am so joyful for your new family! :)

Rae, the video is beautiful! What an honor to see the first moments with your new ones. I loved your post about the adjustments to a family of seven! I know just what you mean. I couldn't help laughing and commiserating. It gets easier though; at least, it did for us. I can't wait to hear how things are going in another few weeks.

With Love,
Penelope

Hi, I'm carnella, I spoke with dave today when he called enbrel. He gave me the website and i enjoyed it. It warmed my heart to see what you guys are doing and how you are making a difference. your story provides hope to people who have given up hope for man kind. to know that there are still unselfish people in the world who love God and is willing to give their all for the benefit fo helping others and giving God all the glory while doing so sends chills down my spine. i feel everyone should know your story and should follow your steps in making the world a better place. May God bless you with all of your heart's desire for giving so much of yourselves unselfishly. God bless always... Carnella Guy

I followed the link you gave me in an email when I requested info. on the guest house in Addis.

I just wanted to say you have a beautiful family and that slideshow/video is so touching. I'm in tears :)

This is such a wonderful journey and I've met so many amazing people because of it.

Thank you for sharing.

Hi Rae,
I wanted to tell you that I LOVED reading your blog. (Jeff Webster told Jeff about it.) I cried when I saw you get your new children. You've always said that you would one day adopt and it was so neat to watch you do it. I hope you all are well. I'd love to catch up in an email. We've just moved back to the States and we are living in California. I loved seeing Noah and Charli. Congratulations to you all on your new additions!
Love,
Jessica

Great great video! I loved the huge welcome you received when you came out of the rotating doors. I saw your comment on another blog and had to stop by. We recently brought home our newsest son Dennis!

Beautiful! I so enjoyed your photos of Addis. I must admit, photographing the people was at time too much for me. Too hard..so I have to remember through other people's photos. How wonderful!

Jill said...

you are right - one child at a time and we can absolutely make a difference!

God will bless your work and I pray others are touched by it to hear His calling upon their lives as well!

God bless your family!
