Soufrila– Aug 24 2004 (first stay in RC)


Soufrila–July 12 2005 (second stay in the RC) (yes her mom is wearing the same dress a year later)


Soufrila–Aug 4 2005 This is what she looked like after her swelling from the kwashiorkor went down


Soufrila –Jan 10 2006  Going home for the second time.  We did lots of education with the mom on what food she needed to eat.  We never saw her again.


Until today–Nov 11 2008  Healthy happy and looks great!


Galatians 6:9 (The Message)

  9-10So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.

Isaiah 40:30-31 (The Message)

 27-31Why would you ever complain, O Jacob,
   or, whine, Israel, saying,
“God has lost track of me.
   He doesn’t care what happens to me”?
Don’t you know anything? Haven’t you been listening?
God doesn’t come and go. God lasts.
   He’s Creator of all you can see or imagine.
He doesn’t get tired out, doesn’t pause to catch his breath.
   And he knows everything, inside and out.
He energizes those who get tired,
   gives fresh strength to dropouts.
For even young people tire and drop out,
   young folk in their prime stumble and fall.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
   They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don’t get tired,
   they walk and don’t lag behind.

    Thanks for posting those verses. I’m so discouraged with our adoption process that I was just thinking, “I just want it to end. One way or another, I just want it to end. I want to stop leading worship so I can have a break from the spiritual warfare.” And then I look at this post of a little girl living life and then I read the verses you posted underneath. Thank you. I’m weeping again for the umpteenth time today but maybe with a glimmer of hope. I’m going to post these on my blog. Thank you.
