Long Lost Friends

Adorable Ava

Look at that smile

The future University of Toledo Drum Line

How cute is that?

Evening exercises

Ethan gives Graci hugs......

and look what he gets in return!

The Lord has a strange way of intersecting the paths he has chosen for us. Mia & Al Yost were in the marching band with Amy. Mia played the marimba with Amy and Al played snare drum. During those days we spent many Friday nights together practicing and hanging out. After graduation we went our seperate ways and lost touch with each other. Through a marching band reunion we were reunited and have corresponded ever since. The crazy thing is that we BOTH had adopted a child from Guatelama and at the time we reconnected, were currently working on our second adoptions. Well two Saturdays ago we finally got together with their family. Ethan and Mia had a great time playing with Mia and Al's children Gracie and Ava. (Graci came home in October 2005 at 6 months and Ava came home in September 2007 just shy of her first birthday) Mia and Al are now in the process of adopting again from Guatemala and recently found out that their precious Rita is out of PGN! We pray that the rest of their process moves quickly and that they will soon bring their third girl home. Hope they have that van ready!
