It's a small miracle!!!

Well I was so thrilled this morning when I awoke to an e-mail from Tina in Australia announcing that she had been matched with Peter from Dorcas House. Peter is Rafael's roommate in Dorcas House and there are only the two of them in the infant room. From what I can tell, they spend alot of time together. Tina and I have been e-mailing over the past several months as we had both been waiting so long for a referral so to me it seems like a miracle that Peter was actually matched with someone who I was in contact with!!!! Therefore, Peter and Rafael can stay in touch through e-mails and skype and hopefully one day they can meet up in person again. We are beyond thrilled that the boys can keep in touch. What a special connection that we both share!!

Isn't it neat how things all seem to work out and be somehow linked?? :)

Wow wow wow, Renee this is absolutely amazing. And don't you have pictures of Peter?? That is SO cool! I've been trying hard to find Ezekiel's best friend from RSCC, but haven't had any luck so far. I think this is beyond cool!!!

What a gift!

We had a reunion of three boys (our youngest and two from other families) and and older girl from the same orphanage last fall. It was great to see them all and how they're all growing and thriving. We happen to all live in the same state and one of us lives one state to the south. I don't know how these connections will change down the road, but it's special now. Enjoy!

That is awesome! This past summer, our son was reunited with a friend from his orphanage. The family lives about 11 hours from us. It is so awesome that you will be able to keep the boys connected. I will never forget the joy I felt at seeing my son having fun with one of his first friends in life! What a gift.

Renee, that is amazing! God is sooo good! I kept thinking about Rafael's little sidekick and wondering if he would be going to his forever home too. I'm thrilled -- absolutely thrilled to know this!!

Blessings!

Wow Renee, that is totally cool! That is such a blessing that you and Tina can share this with the boys. Thanks to the technology, you will all be able to communicate with each other for years to come. Fantastic, I'm happy for all of you.
