You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.
And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.
You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

Deuteronomy 6:5-9

your kids

hey adoptive parents,

just wanted you to know that your kids are doing great and getting loved on a lot by the team...

Kevens & Rebecca are adorable as always! Bob has played with Rebecca outside a few times. And her eyes light up when I tell her that I know her Mama Cara.

Justin & Sweetey Petey are doing well-cute as ever! Petey looks at me curiously when I tell him I know his Mama Cara and that she loves him very much.

Jonathon is Jonathon-he's been climbing on Eric.

Daniel (upstairs) has made a special friend in one of the teens with us-Justin.

There's more, but I really have to go now, don't wanna get left behind!

I will not even try to post pics from here, but I will post pics after I get back to the States.


  1. Awwww! Thanks so much for the update on my sweeties!!!!!!!!!!!! I MISS THEM SOOOOO much!

    I am so glad that things are going well for you down there, Lena! I've been praying that you would be able to sleep well! And I will continue to pray for your DHS appointment! Don't leave until you get it done!

  2. Thank you for updating us on our kiddos, Lena! I'm so glad some people are hanging out in the nursery. I know it's a lot more fun to hang out outside in the sunshine with the big kids than it is than to sit in that dark room upstairs. Please tell your team how much we appreciate it! And tell our boys to get ready because they are going home soon!

  3. Wow, it sounds like things are going wonderfully!


Thanks for interacting with me thru my blog. I love hearing from you.

Thanks again!
