Search for “Forever Family”

They are intelligent, engaging, beautiful healthy HIV positive orphan girls. Thirteen other people live in the

"My" girls

same tiny little house in Addis Ababa, Capital city of Ethiopia.

The younger sister plays soccer, the older does hair braiding in her cousin’s shop which is attached to street side of the painted stick and mud house.

The older of the two writes and asks me to find a “forever” family in the U.S.A for them. She tells others she wants “Poppy” (the name our grandchildren use for me) to adopt them. We are in our seventies.

We can’t.

The Ethiopian government only allows photos to be made available to interested parties.

Will you help me find a forever family for them?

Maybe you?

SUCCESS!

Finally!

Ain't God good!

It has required three trips to Ethiopia and multiple meetings but finally SUCCESS.

Three and a half years ago, half way around the planet, we said goodbye to a precious little girl who had been the best friend of  Fetlework, our adopted granddaughter at Agohelma Orphanage in Addis Ababa Ethiopia.

The orphanage no longer “does” adoptions. First Charlie was told:  “It can’t be done.”  He was also told “There are two” (there is a younger sister.) Both are healthy HIV positive girls who receive necessary medications.

On a subsequent visit Charlie was encouraged that it can be done. Now! after many scheduled meetings most of which were postponed. SUCCESS!

Less than a week after return two possible “forever families” have been identified. One is VERY serious!

Please pray with us for continued success and that these two precious girls will “come home” at last.

Below are samples of the artwork of “our” girls.
