[Saturday Snapshot]

I'm linking up with Miss Kim of Yellow Songbird this morning! Check out her blog. It's adorable.

Saturday Snapshot is a way to litter the internet with fun, fabulous and interesting photos from the present or past. Here's this week's photo-

This picture was taken in 2007 while I was visiting an after school program in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I had been there the year before and met this little gal. All of the kids here were being taken care of by family because they were orphans. The program offered them some schooling and at least one meal. It was an amazing experience.

Both of my trips to Africa helped solidify a longing in my heart to expand out family be either adoption, foster care, or just taking in stragglers. This past week, some of our mentors told us that they see our home in the future full. Full of people in need of a family and home. This made my heart sing. We just signed a lease for a condo that is more than we need, but we want it to be full of family, friends and anyone who needs a new start.

I can't wait to get to Colorado and start our more permanent home. We have been looking into foster care and I think that is where God is leading us, but that will be in the future. For now, we want to host anyone in need of a stable home and a good meal.

Need some friends? Come stay with us in Boulder, CO :)



  1. Hurray for Colorado! And a full home is such a beautiful thing... I hope you find a great more permanent place in Boulder.

  2. LOVELY!!! I'm so excited for you to have a full home as well as a home in Colorado!
