Coming Home

13 Feb

Oh, boy, blog readers, do I have something fun for you today!!

To start, a crazy story:

Once upon a time there was a girl who fell in love with a boy.  They were boyfriend and girlfriend for more than three years, until the girl went off to college and decided it was time to “see other people.”  It was a mutual break-up, and they stayed good friends.  Being a year younger, the boy stayed home that year, and then came on to the same college when it was his turn.  By this time the girl had met and fallen in love with another guy, whom she would eventually marry.   But since she and the boy were still friends, she set up the boy with her roommate/sorority little sister.  And THEY fell in love and got married. 

Isn’t that a sweet story?  And it’s TRUE!  And now, my sweet Brian and Amy have adopted two Ethiopian children to add to their brood of four.  They recently returned from a month in Africa with all their children, and Brian put together a great picture blog about their journey.  So get out a kleenex, and then go check it out.   And when you’re done with that, scroll through the other blogs that he has written since they’ve returned.  Lots of fun stories with the kids’ perspective on their journey.

Enjoy the weekend!!

PS.  Clearly God knew what he was doing.  I could never be the mother of six children, but my darling Amy is just the girl for the job!
