A Report on Our Girls

One of the ladies who was there when they found our girls in their village recently went back to Ethiopia and met our girls at the transition home. She gave us this encouraging report:

I was AMAZED to see how they changed this trip. Truly shocked at how they've grown and developed. When I walked into the transition house this last time, one of them ran up to me and grabbed my leg and looked up at me with this gorgeous smile and these sparkling eyes. I said, "Oh my gosh, who is this child? She has the sweetest face and her eyes are beautiful!" And they told me it was one of your twins! What a transformation from September. Know they are doing well and blossoming, and that they have a real genuine warmth and kindness about them.
All of the previous reports we had received was about how shy the girls were, and all the pictures we have are so somber. What an encouragement to hear these words and see these beautiful pictures:

Oh,look at those baby girls!!! I had a dream about them last night! They were playing and laughing and running around at their transition home. That's all. But, I think that's a lot!
