Allow me to introduce our new niece (and little cousin for Samson), Kareen!
My dear brother and sister, Kris and Kecia, are adopting little 4 year old Kareen from Eastern Europe. Through thoughtful prayer and fasting Kris and Kecia feel that Kareen belongs in their family; that their girls needs another sister, and that Bree needs a buddy!
The process has been started to bring Kareen home to her family, and we are just itching with excitement!
It's overwhelming to be in a family that the Lord has entrusted three of his angels to join into, and such an incredible blessing! How many people can say that they have three down syndrome nieces!? These beautiful girls bring so much love and joy into our lives, and are a constant reminder of God's love for us. It takes all of 30 seconds of spending time with any one of them to feel of the amazing spirit they carry!
Today Kareen turns 4, and in this beautiful letter Kecia writes to her on her blog she tells Kareen how she'll never have to spend another birthday alone, and we are so happy about that!
