I just stumbled across your blog for the the first time tonight. God Bless you for opening your heart to this dear child! The world would be a better place if we all had such loving hearts as yours!

Praise is a beautiful little girl and I am certain that you bring her as much happiness and love as she brings to you.

Amazing to look back at the picture from only 7 months ago. She looks like she is doing well. I hope her medicine works and she is on her way to gaining weight... Blessings to you all.

You guys are inspiring. I'm working now on a new HIV+ orphanage in Ethiopia...

I also thought to write and tell you about the new guest home in Ethiopia specifically for adoptive parents and volunteer groups for the benefit of orphans in Ethiopia. Now that it is up and running, we would love to share the vision with other adoptive parents. You can see more at

If you would like to post a link, send me an email at and I’ll forward you the information.
