This is my brand new niece Frances. Isn't she beautiful?!?
In March, my sister Dori, her husband Jim and twin daughters Georgia and Lillian traveled to Ethiopia to pick her up. They had only seen Frances in a photo and were most anxious to hug and kiss her and bring her home to Texas. And one week later, their family of four became five.
They will never, ever forget the week they spent in Ethiopia. And they will never forget the warm and caring people they met along the way.
Frances adjusted to her new life quickly. She likes a nice bath tubby.
And she loves her big guy Bert. When you join this family, you have to love dogs! It's mandatory. I think Frances got the memo.
First trip to the Airstream? A+++ of course!
And boy, does Frances LOVE her big sisters! And they love HER! These three sisters even share the exact same birthday, just 9 years apart. Isn't that amazing?!? Triple the birthday fun!
Sweet children everywhere. So much need.
Lillian and Georgia have designed a set of notecards they are selling to benefit a group of children they met during their stay. They have already raised $450! I'm so proud of them. They have big hearts.
