5 Little Cuties Sitting on a Bench...One fell off and...

Last weekend our Ethiopian Adopt Group from the Lafayette area got together for a picnic. Unfortunately, we had to postpone our get together one day because of rain, so that meant several families were not able to come. We hated to postpone, but rain and picnics don't go together very well! We were excited to meet some of our newest additions to the group; altogether there were 5 kids from Ethiopia home with their new families. It was a joy to see the families united. Here are some pictures of the event.

What a sweet picture! Unfortunately, one of these little fellows fell off and bumped his head right after the picture was taken. Thankfully, he wasn't hurt too badly!

We are all so blessed to have such a large group of families in our area that have (or are in the process of adopting) from Ethiopia. God has brought so many special people (now friends) into our lives through of our adoption of Abeba. I am thankful to God that He laid it upon our hearts to adopt for several reasons One of these reasons is the wonderful people he has brought into our lives.
