coming home











Our friends the Marcums adopted another child this month. They've adopted 9 children now and have 11 altogether. Five of the children they've adopted were adopted from Ethiopia all at once, and the older boy decided he wanted to stay in Ethiopia, but he changed his mind this year and wanted to be with his siblings. The Marcums are a really awesome family, and I'm so glad they're our friends!

Do have anymore "adoption" stories to tell, besides the ones in this post?




























ps: not going to be posting for a bit.
