One Less.

In the country of Ethiopia, there are an estimated 4.5 million orphans.

Today, there is one less.


Soli Deo Gloria.

Edited: We had to take the video down because of privacy policies with the orphanages in Ethiopia. Email me if you want to see it. I'm easy that way.

Melissa, my girls and I celebrated the addition to your family and had smiles stretched across our faces. Then the tears came as the 3 of us saw the girls feet in shoes that long ago fit her. We are broken.

Okay, so I cried. That was so touching! My brother and sister-in-law have been waiting since last year to go get their baby in Ethiopia. He is 10 months old. Hopefully he will be home by November. We can't wait.
