Sweet Sarah

Sarah is doing wonderfully well. If anyone had told me all that we would be experiencing I never would have believed them. Sarah is bright and happy with a ready smile and musical laugh. She has been very loved during her 2 1/2 years.

Dave and I had the opportunity to meet with her foster Mother today and also a wonderful couple who have been sponsoring her health care and schooling. I would equate them to God parents in the United States. It was a totally surreal experience. The sponsor family brought us gifts and a wonderful photo album of Sarah over the past 1 1/2 years or so. Incredibly they have a niece who attends Rice University in Houston Texas!!!! We have exchanged emails and plan to keep in touch.

The sponsor parents met Sarah because they are friends with the President of the orphanage and were visiting there one day and fell in love with her. They also brought us a beautiful painting by a local artist. I think the meeting was priceless, we were able to share with them about our family and we both expressed our sincere gratitude for the roles we will each play in Sarah's life. Our guide told us he had never seen anything like it in the 2 years that he has worked with the adoption agency. He told us Sarah is the most loved little girl he has met. I am sorry if I ramble, it is so much to take in for all of us here.

Thank you all for your prayers and love. We can't wait for you to meet Sarah. I know she will melt your heart.

"Live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us as fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:2

Blessings,
