A few more photos...


Joseph.... he saw me from far off, broke rank and ran to me! I was able to capture the moment...
























































And, lets not forget little Zoya... She ran to me too! Here are those moments:


































She loves Heather too! Later, Joseph gave Heather the same necklace and hair treatment he gave Charissa when they first met. I think he was just super excited.

The 2nd photo of Joseph and the 1st one of Zoya . . . those are the moments to live for. Heart-stopping. So much love, abandon, joy, hope fulfilled. Yep, a picture can say 1,000 words and more. Such a genuine spiritual truth in those two images. Beautiful.

This has got to be one of the most beautiful sights I have seen in my life. This reminded me about the Father meeting the prodigal son coming home. John, you are the father bringing home the son and daughter. I know our Father in heaven is smiling over you, Charissa and the rest of the Urban funny farm.
