An orphan no more....

Gotcha Day

More of the details later, but for now I think a picture says a thousand words.

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:18

Just like the poem about the starfish, there is no way we can make a difference

in the life of every orphan, but to this one,

we WILL make a difference.

She's beautiful Suzette, and happy, and laughing! God is so good! So very, very good! Look at her smiling in her mama's and big sister's arms, and sleeping on her daddy's shoulder (that picture alone speaks thousands of words).

Crying tears of joy. Lia has a family, and her family has their long awaited treasure, forever. God is faithful.

Rejoicing in Texas!
