Grace’s Friend is Coming Home!

I can’t even describe how excited I am for our new friends Barb & Mike

They just received their Travel Approval and are hoping to leave in about 3 weeks to bring their daughter, Nora, home.  

That special little girl is also very special to my little girl. 

{You might remember my posts here & here, which led to our amazement when this happened.}

They’ve shared many years in their orphanage together.

(Grace is on the far right and Nora is just to her left, holding the red lollipop.  The girls were about 3.5 years old.)

Nora has watched Grace leave.

And now it’s Nora’s turn.


Hop on over to their blog and congratulate them, won’t you?

Let’s throw them a party to remember – something special to tell Nora about once she’s home!

(And just in case you are looking, I know of at least 2 more little girls from the same orphanage who are looking for their forever family… just thought I’d mention that!)


  1. Shelley,

    Barb’s blog (their journey to Nina) was the FIRST blog I was lead to and started following when John and I started our adoption journey back in 2007!!!! Such a small world in His might hand.

    God is so good.

    dare I even say I would love info on the 2 girls you mentioned.


  2. Oh! I saw her post on RQ! I am so excited for them and Nora! I remember you posting about her and now she is coming home!!! About the other little girls, I would but it is just not time yet.

    DH and I both know it is a matter of time, b/c we both feel we are not done, which means I suppose we aren’t. All in God’s timing though.

    Can’t wait until it is time for you to go! Getting closer every day!!!

  3. Oh, Tami, I heard that *grinningbig*
    Thanks, Shelley, for your support and your virtual friendship up to this point. Can’t WAIT to meet in real life, and hopefully to skype with our daughters very soon!!!

  4. Hi Tami, I’ll send you an e-mail. :)
