Mom, Katie and Aliya are together!

I thought I would give everyone an update since Laura did not have much time today to write. They made it to the orphanage at the dinner time. When they got there a bunch of kids recognized Laura and Katie from the pictures that we sent and started screaming for Tarikwa! She came running and they sat and cried and hugged each other in the rain. I am sorry that I wasn't there for that moment. It sounds like they got it on video. Aliya (Tarikwa) is a 1/2 inch shorter than Katie and wears the same size shoes. I wonder if they will share clothes or not? Her English is better than Laura expected. She showed Laura and Katie around the orphanage and her room, all the time holding their hands and wanting to carry Laura's heavy backpack. She sounds like a very sweet girl that is ready to come home. I will let Laura share the rest when she gets the chance to. Please keep praying for their safe travel home, I have not heard yet how Katie did with her sinuses. I am assuming good.


  1. YAY!!! SO very happy for you all. Sounds like the perfect reunion. Thank you for sharing. You are all in my prayers.

  2. Keeping you in my prayers as you are traveling and seperated from the guys!

  3. I've really enjoyed following your journey to your beautiful daughter! You are doing a great job keeping us updated. Praying for your family.
