The girls idea of keeping their hair out of their faces for pictures.

This isn't the greatest quality picture but Rachel is still a cutey. A group of waiting mom's all sent cake and fruit to the orphanage so the kids could enjoy an Easter treat.

Robin does something every couple of months for a waiting family that she calls
"Stitches of Hope"
It's sort of like a raffle. She makes an outfit with a bracelet donated by another adoptive mom and also a hair bow, again donated by an adoptive mom. She gives the outfit to the highest bidder and the proceeds go to the family she has chosen.
Now here's the amazing part, this month she chose us!! I am humbled. There are so many hundreds of adopting parents out there struggling to bring their children home and she chose us.
She has named this one the "Rachel Set". Isn't it just the cutest thing you have ever seen??
Please visit Red Thread Stitches to read more.
Robin, you are an amazing person!!

You see, when I bought you a year ago, we had no intention of adopting again. We thought our family was complete.
However, Rachel found us. Out of the blue this little girl from far across the ocean, with this very adorable smile melted our hearts. Isn't she just the sweetest thing!!
We truly started this journey with nothing but $500 in our savings and God has provided. Through the generosity of others and fundraising we are almost there.
But, we have found that flights are much more than we thought and we are about $1700 short, so my prized SLR camera is going. I am listing it on EBay this weekend but if any of you are interested.....
We are expecting TA the first week of May according to our agency and will fly out the following Friday, God willing.

Thank you all for your wonderful prayers and help, without you we would not have been able to bring our daughter home.
