After a Chinese New Year photo shoot this week, I gave the girls these suckers as a treat.
The photo shoot was a bit of a gong show, Zoe did not want to cooperate at all, but I did get some decent shots.
I know people use many things as a little home studio, but for my girls, I used an old roller blind. It is white on one side and beige on the other side. I tacked it up in my kitchen, where I have some great natural light and it worked really well.
Also, so many people I know have been given referrals in the past couples of weeks, it warms my heart!
None of these families have had an easy journey, it has been a rollercoaster ride for all of them, and for some of them it still is... but God has placed these beautiful children in their lives and soon they will be home.
A couple that was in our original LID group for Lilah, has received a referral for a 3 year old boy from the China Waiting Child program, and he is gorgeous.
A couple that we have journeyed with on both of our adoptions is committed to adopting a precious one year old girl, from Haiti, and are in the process of fighting hard to bring her home.
Another couple has received a referral for siblings from Ethiopia, a boy and a girl, and they too are beautiful and should be home in the fall.
This journey is an amazing one, it brings people together in an amazing way and forms relationships with people far and near. It opens our eyes to something that few people ever get to see, something you cannot turn away from and wouldn't want to.
In you the orphan finds mercy. -- Hosea 14:3
