That just feels so good to know a child from Haiti is in a new home, where I know for sure he will be loved. Thank you for your heart for adoption, and yes, red and yellow black and white, all are precious in His sight. We are singing that song here in our local church with the kids, it is a great song.

Much love to you all from across the ocean
Emma

Lorraine,
Kiefer is just a doll. He's got to be the most huggable little boy I've ever seen. We leave for Serbia this weekend and we'll be gone until the end of the month. I'll keep Chrissie in my prayers and check for updates when possible.
Your family is such a beautiful example of what God wants us all to be!
