This is me...doing a happy dance...singing and dancing and thanking God. (Well, actually, my hair is a little bit shorter than this.) What is causing all this lightheartedness and frivolity, you ask? My friend, Sherrie, and her daughter, Sophie arrived home last night. They had travelled about 28 hours, and were exhausted...but glad to be home. Sophie allowed Sherrie to carry her off the plane, and into waiting arms. But, she was not a happy little girl. The good news is:
she will be! With her brothers Joshua and Justin, whom she already adores,she will have plenty of attention. Say a little prayer for them as Sophie acclimates to a strange land, strange food, and strange people everywhere she looks. God has guided Sherrie and her husband through this whole journey, and He will continue to guide them and be their strength.

Awww...make that dance a two-step...cos I'm dancing right along with ya! Hallelujah for this family...and sweet Sophie...who will soon know what we know...she's a very lucky and blessed little girl. Happy days will soon be plentiful for the entire family...and all their friends will get to enjoy this right along with them!

Blessings...and thanks for the update!

Wonderful news. If this little girl knew how many well-wishers she has, she'd be amazed. So much can only be from God.

Bless that dear family. I do pray that she'll soon feel at home and in love with them.
