I could watch that over and over. And cry every time. What a beautiful family.

I forgot to ask, may I send some clothes for Zoya? I have the exact sizes she is wearing. I went a bit crazy on the last granddaughter.She is 13 mo. and just outgrew what Zoya is in now. The boys are not so easy on their clothes and there is never much to pass on. God Bless, deb

I should have known to grab the kleenex box before watching this one! What a testimony to God's Love and Grace and putting the lonely ones in families! Not only are Ava, Joseph and Zoya blest but so are Simeon, Liesel, Jude and Hope. Love and kisses sent your way today from Mexico!!

Okay...I'm wondering where you learned to put all of that footage together. I want to take classes. When did you find time to learn to do this,?

Okay...a blubbery mess first thing in the morning. Beautiful. Nice job. I am so happy for them and so happy for you.

Blessings.

Oh Charissa - how beautiful! From the looks of Zoya at the orphanage I think you got to her just in time. (Or should I say - she got to you.) :)

God Bless you all!
