Thanking the Lord for the blessing of Julia in 2012...
She became our daughter on February 28, 2012.
She went from...
daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, granddaughter
one of many
beloved one to many
special to no one
special to many
lonely and sometimes scared
What a difference a family makes in the life of a child...
Looking forward to the blessing of Hannes in 2013...
We see so many similarities between the look on Hannes's face and the look on Julia's face in the photo taken before she joined our family.
We can't wait to post photos of him smiling and full of joy
as he discovers the love of a family!!
We are expecting to travel to him in just a few weeks...
If you still need to make a contribution to apply to 2012 taxes,
you have 2 days left...
we would be most grateful and encouraged by your contribution
and the part you play in loving this particular orphan.
