We've Known Her One Week!

I can't believe it was only one week ago today that we were driving up to the gate at Hiwot's orphanage. It seems like we have known her for much longer...she is having a great time getting to know her brothers and sister. I am thanking God every day for His loving hand in our adoption journey...He has designed an amazing "mosaic" called our family...
