A Little Bit Of This....A Little Bit Of That.....

Today our friends left to pick up their precious daughter Abby. Today marks the beginning of the final leg of their 18 month journey. It's been beautiful to watch. Incredible to be a part of and we can't wait to support them as they start the next chapter in this journey as they adjust to a family of 7.
Another beautiful part to this story is that Zahra is in the same transition home that Abby is. Joe and Rachel took a care package with them for Zahra. They will spend time with our girl. They will tell her she has a family that loves her deeply. They will show her pictures and hug her for us. This melts my heart and levels me to tears. Some of our dearest friends will love on our girl. Whisper in her ear that she is so loved and that we will be there soon.

This past week we've been blown away by the T-shirt sales, financial gifts, and people that have written us letting us know they are praying for us. It's incredible.

This week we have eight kids. Yes, the Walser kids are here and its a full house! We were all talking about what our two families will look like in a few months with TEN kids between us! The picture below was taken this past summer after we participated in Disney's Give-a-day-get-a-day.
Tonight we're hosting the 2nd annual Shubin New Years Eve Party! Lots going on! Hearts full and much to celebrate!

There is MUCH to look forward to in 2011!

Thank you for being a part of bringing Zahra home!
