Almost one year in.....

I cannot believe that we have been home almost a year with Nile. Oh the joy he has brought into our family. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about Africa and all of the children we left behind. I pray that all of the sweet children we met last year are not still there.  It happens one family at a time. That is why I pray that other families will submit to the calling to adopt. I really want others to experience God's miracle of loving a child that was born across the world from you. A child of a different race, culture, country, family--it's a beautiful experience!!

I dream of the day when I can go back to Africa. It's hard when you have little ones but hopefully we will be returning in the future to bring other children or a child into our family to love, nurture, disciple.

Here are some recent pics of the kiddos.
