I Am Thankful.

A year ago this Thanksgiving we were in Ethiopia getting Josiah, Keren and Keziah. I am so thankful for them and what God has done to our hearts through them! They are precious gifts and we love them soooooo much! I am so Thankful for God's saving grace. I am so thankful for each an everyone in my crazy, huge, loud family. I am so thankful for my 5 sibling's birthparents and the sacrifices they made for their children and for chosing to give them all the gift of life. I am especially thankful for one very special woman. Her name is Tigist and we spent last Thanksgiving with her. She is the most unselfish person I have ever met, she has gone through more than is even imaginable and has sacrificed so much because of the love she has for her children. Last Thanksgiving was one of the hardest, most emotional days of my life and I am forever grateful for her and her loving sacrifice. She will always be in my and my family's hearts. I am thankful for Tigist.
