I'm seeing Pink!

Today, we accepted the referral of Maritu. She's 8 1/2 months old, weighs 11lb., and comes from Kembata Tembaro region of Ethiopia. Yes, I stated that correctly. She weighs 11 pounds, so as you can guess, she suffers from Marasmus (severe malnutrition). My husband was extremely worried at first, which is just the "doctor" coming out of him, but after I saw Kim G.'s photos/video clips from her trip, I immediately called Kenneth at work and made him look at them. He knew then by the way she followed the camera that she was a little fighter! Oh my heart is filled with God's praises!

Hi...I grew up in Spurger, Texas. I live in Doha, Qatar currently. We are adopting from Ethiopia, too. I linked to your blog from the yahoo group.

Congratulations on your referrals...Lynn

Holly,
I was wondering who was adopting that baby girl. She is beautiful. I don't know if you saw them but I had a couple of pics of her from our trip. Sorry I am so behind, but things have been a bit crazy around here.
