We are an Air Force family who have lived in ten different places during our 17 years of marriage. We are in the process of adopting a child from Ethiopia, which is a primary reason we began this blog. We have learned so much about the needs of the suffering outside of the borders of our affluent country. As Christians, we are called by our LORD to respond. Our desire is to record our journey as encouragement to our own family, as well as others.
A few days ago Rachel decided it was time to cut twelve inches off of her beautiful hair. Look how cute it is now! She donated her curls to Locks of Love, an organization who makes wigs for cancer patients who have lost their hair during treatment. She did this in honor of an 11-year old friend of ours who went through this some years ago. What a beautiful gift...from a beautiful girl! (see the Christmas picture for a comparison)
