And Then There Was One

Here's our sweet Rahel holding little Haben in Ethiopia this past weekend. They were the last two kids remaining in the care center from our local "adoptive moms" group. Haben's parents said that he would go to Rahel easier than to them at first-I'm sure she's been a big help with him and the other little ones while she's been waiting.

Airport homecomings-gotta love em.

Haben safe at home in the arms of his mommy surrounded by lots of loving family and friends.

Four out of the 5 mommas sporting our "hearts for Haben" tees.

Now she waits for her turn. Not only have all of her local friends gone home, but all but one of the older girls that have been her family since September have left as well. I know she is lonely and I pray that her turn will come SOON.

Congratulations Jeannie and family on your precious new arrival!


  1. I've been thinking about Rahel and that she's one of the last big girls! I hope the time passes quickly for her - and us! She's so sweetly holding Hiyab is many of the pictures. The last thing I said to her was, "look out for Hermon and Hiyab, teach them English!" I was joking but she seems to be doing it (the looking out part). I'm dying to get back!

  2. Praying for Rahel to be at peace while she waits for her forever family to be united, praying for the rest of the family too!
