Bringing Marley Home!

Finally, what you've all been waiting for...our photos from our trip. We've been home one week, and I have to say that Marley is truly a gift from God. A real life miracle and blessing way more than we ever imagined. She fits so perfectly in our family and it the happiest baby we have ever seen. There is no way that we could have orchestrated this any more perfectly. Thank God that our Father is in control, He really outdid himself on this one! Thank you God for answering our prayers and bringing this child into our lives!

Wowow, girl it has been a long road, I remember getting you as my family at CHI. I am so glad that God chose you as Marley’s parents. I loved that Marley was reaching for her Daddy’s face at the HOH when you first got her....darling. All the bows are so perfect!!! Miles you will have to make sure to help Mommy and Daddy with Marley and be the best big brother ever!! I know you will. Prayers and much love - Toni Lynch

Beautiful! I am sure you have already heard that Marley and Miles look like they could be bio siblings! How neat is that! It is 3am here, so I watched sans music. I was a mess, can't even imagine what I would be with a soundtrack to that perfect little movie.

I showed your video montage during dinner and there were screams of "Sifen! Sifen!" from my dinner table. Your precious little girl will always be special to our two here. It was such a joy to meet you and share in your amazing time of meeting your daughter. God bless you as you all settle in and get to know each other. You have an absolutely beautiful family!
Love,
Katie and my little Ethiopian Cuties
