The Girls

Donald and I submitted our commitment paperwork to Reece's Rainbow yesterday to adopt two little girls. Brigitte and Virgina are their names (for now, teehee), and they are darling. The odds of losing their referral like we did the boys is extremely low, but we're trying our best to remember that adoption from their country can be very unpredictable, and it's the small risk we must take for them.

Both girls were listed on Reece's Rainbow shortly before we lost the referral for Eli.
I maintain: there are no coincidences, only master plans.

Our Family Sponsorship Page on Reece's Rainbow can be found here.
All donations we receive will be paid forward in full, to another adopting family, when we receive next year's tax return.

And as always; prayers, good vibes, positive thoughts, and crossed fingers are hugely appreciated.

This little girls turns 4 next month.

VirginiaSweet Virginia is 24 months old.

They're going to be so much fun to dress up.


  1. They're beautiful! I have to admit that I'm not overly familiar with International adoption. Do you have an estimated timeframe on when you'll be able to bring them home? I hope and pray that it's quickly.

  2. Oh, and I just clicked on the link on your sponsorship you live in or around Graham? My husband and I just bought a house in Graham in December. Small world!

  3. Oh my goodness they're cute! Congrats!!

  4. I was so upset to hear about the recent events with losing the boys referral. Then, just today, I was on Reece's Rainbow and saw two of my little favorites (who I would take home in a heartbeat if we weren't already planning on the twins!) and I was so thrilled that they had a family! Then, I was even more excited to see that they were coming home to *your* family!!! Hooray! I'm so thrilled for you and for them (jumping up and down!)

  5. Very, very excited for you. I know there will always be that sense of loss for the boys but you will be wonderful with the girls. I would read about sweet Brigitte and how friendly she is and hoped that she would get a family quickly. So I am very excited for her.

  6. They are beautiful! Congratulations, you are going to have so much fun with your girls!

  7. Just thrilled my favorite girl is coming home! Can't wait to follow your journey and see her on this side of the world with her family! <3

  8. omgosh!! They are too sweet!!! How exciting!!

  9. Congratulations! They look adorable. And, you're right, they will be a whole lot of fun to dress up.

  10. Katrina-I am a Reece's Rainbow prayer warrior, dreamer of adopting, mother of three. I have been praying for these TWO sweet, sweet girls and have their pictures on my fridge. I am overjoyed to see the Lord bringing y'all together. I look forward to following and praying for all of you through this journey. What a blessing.
