National Adoption Day!

1 year ago today, on November 23, 2012, a very sick, tiny, malnourished but LOVED baby girl entered the black gates of Hannah's Hope in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She had already experienced much loss in her 3 and a half months of life, but God's healing and restoration miracle was already beginning! She was just over 8 pounds, and by a miracle from the Lord had gotten to Hannah's Hope so that she could survive.

Today, one year later, on November 23, 2013, our beloved daughter, Caroline Faith Letehiwot, is a happy, active, healthy 21 pound toddler! Her Ethiopian name, Letehiwot, means "girl of life", and she truly is full of love and LIFE! Nothing short of a MIRACLE from the Lord! Our God heals, restores, and redeems, and she is a living testimony of His goodness and faithfulness!

Today is National Adoption Day, and we couldn't be more THANKFUL for the gift of adoption and the LIFE of our Caroline Faith! Tears and hearts overflowing today! Thank You, Jesus!!!

"You make known to me the path of LIFE; You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand." 
Psalm 16:11
