Worth a Thousand Words



Tommy at 2 1/2 months old.

It is rare in international adoption to have a baby picture. We have been incredibly blessed to receive a picture of tiny Tommy, taken by someone on a mission trip serving the Ibanda parish. A dear friend (and adoption mentor) of ours knew people on that trip and asked around to see if anyone had taken pictures of any of the babies. At the time of the trip, in summer 2008, no babies had come to the US from the home. The person who snapped this photo could never have known how much it would mean to us to have it. This an indescribable treasure. We are so thankful.
