Sisterhood....




An E-mail to share:
Hi Sue, my name is Caroline Gbanjah.I learned that you adopted two kids from liberia.I am a U.S citizen but, from liberia.I really appreciate people like you.May God continue to guide you and your family and any thing you wish to do in life be sucessful.
I got this in my work e-mail today. Whenever we meet people from Liberia they immediately thank us for adopting A&E. It is so nice and appreciated especially since I often wonder if we are doing the right thing.

I hadn't checked the blog for over a week because there was a dry spell there which got me out of the habit too. So what a treat I had this morning to find the absolutely adorable sister pictures, plus the "In your Easter bonnet" pictures. Well, no bonnets, but the Easter finery was spectacular. I see that Grandma is working miracles because while both girls were still in their pj's, E-man was dapper and looked like he was on his way out to church! And the Easter bunny cake brought a smile to my face and a tear to my eye, because I have been seeing that cake since Charlie was two, and he's now 32, so I guess this is a real tradition. Bet Abegail and Annie will be making one some day!
Love,
Nancy

Hey Sue

I try to be a faithful blog looker and watch ya on the news when I have time in the morning...We are currently a family of 5 kids, 2 parents. I have followed your blog since you were in Liberia. I have had a heart for adoption/foster care since I can remember. My husband and I are in the process of starting a non profit. Our plans are to build a community of homes for married couples to adopt Minnesota's waiting children. Our plans are to start this in or near Becker MN. Currently there are over 650 children waiting to be adopted just in Minnesota. However is couples have a passion to adopt from another country, go for it. The housing will be low cost to each couple. Our hopes are to open this up couples that don't have adequate housing, or financially can fend for themselves, but because of high housing they cannot afford to adopt. Plus the community of support. They will be able to have their own home, but also are able to participate in group stuff....Really laid back, but also a great support system. Check out our website if you'd like! I am sure you would be a great speaker on the ins and outs of adopting older children! Blessings to you! Thanks for your honesty always!
