Take A LOOK...

Miss Ellianna being Miss Ellianna
Princess, name it she is it!
She makes my heart smile!
Isaiah 51:11 ESV     
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return and come to Zion with singing; everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain gladness and joy, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
 Wow - look at our Angelina sitting up so proudly!
Who would have thought that in 4 short months she would come so far!
Angelina you make my heart smile!
I will bless the Lord at all times:
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in the Lord:
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
Oh magnify the Lord with me,
and let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord and He heard me,
and delivered me from all my fears!!
Psalm 34: 1-4
 Inquisitive Angelina
What is in here?
How do I open this present?
This is for me!!!!!
 Behold, GOD is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation.Isaiah 12:2
What a joy you are in our lives!
Your smile and giggle make me stop and listen and appreciate all we have been given in life!
I appreciate the small things in life because of you!
You are a gift straight from HEAVEN!
Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song. Psalm 28:6, 7 (NIV)
The toothless grin of Avigayil!
(she has teeth - a mouth full of them- but often smiles as if she does not - hilarious I think!)
Ellianna you are always loving life!
Doesn't this make you stop and smile!
Enjoy the small moments of life because they are really
THE BIG MOMENTS...we have it all backwards!
And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.Mark 11:22-23 (KJV)
 Angelina opening her birthday card - notice it says 6!
She is 6 years old and the size of a 1 year old child!  She is not this delayed because of her special need..NO...she is this delayed due to the conditions she lived under for 5 and 1/2 years of her life!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5,6 (NIV)
Ellianna and Avi you were so patient with me...
I was amusing myself one day and trying to get at least 1 good photo with both of them smiling!
I succeeded!
 He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
 Just another to make you smile!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
 Oh if you could only hear Angelina when she is talking and making noises!
She is precious, priceless, adorable, hilarious and a miracle child!
We are so very blessed!
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." Jeremiah 29:11-13 (NIV)
I have a lot to say you know!
  "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6 (NIV)
Psalm 5:11-12But let all those rejoice who put their trust in You; Let them ever shout for joy, because You defend them; Let those also who love Your name Be joyful in You. For You, O LORD, will bless the righteous; With favor You will surround him as with a shield. 
 Sasha and Avi
No words to describe the love in my heart for all four of our girls..
Priceless gifts that have blessed our lives beyond words!
As I write this my heart aches for AJ left behind...praying she too might join these beautiful girls and our lives and
be given the gift of a family as God's Word Says in Psalm 68:6
"God places the lonely in families; he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy..."
The children listed below are in Eastern Europe!
Please help spread the word that they need a family!
Sometimes words just fail me and right now at this moment
I can not think of a word to say that will express the ache in my heart for these children!
I can not think of a thing to say that might bring someone to take a closer look and consider adopting one of these precious children.  The need is overwhelming!  The amount of children around the world in desperate need is overwhelming!  HOW can we ever make a difference?  We can 1 child at a time.  I look at our girls and how it made a difference to each of them!
Please take a look and spread the word!
Could you be the family for one of these precious children?
