My dear friends Lisa and Matt with their adopted daughter Koral. They are currently headed to Ethiopia in the beginning of April to go adopt their long awaited son!
I met Lisa years ago when we were both in Vanuatu (an island in the South Pacific ).

Her (Lisa's) brother was working as a missionary there as well and a door opened for them to adopt too. To date there have only been 5 adoptions to the US from there according to the USCIS statistics. So this was an amazing blessing to get to have another American girl adopting the same time! We had some great times and she was such a blessing to my life. Now they are adopting their 2nd child who is a little boy from Ethiopia! How exciting is that. After a year of saving, fundraising, praying and tears they are finally going to go see their little boy in Ethiopia! Since they are going they are taking the opportunity to be a blessing to the orphanage and collect as many financial donations as they can to take over to fund some of the needs of the orphanage.
