The place God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.

Oh! The Party

Blessed by many.

The little people wore their Ethiopian best.

The Birthday Cake - another masterpiece by the most talented of cake makers! We are so thankful we've both moved within driving distance of each other over the past year. Such a gift.

Her first experience with cake, and sugar, and sweets since coming home.

And, while she doesn't have much of a sweet tooth...she definitely enjoyed her nibbles and playing with her cake.

It was a very long afternoon. The best kind. This house was full. Surrounded by friends, new and old - and even an orphanage roommate reunion, it was a true celebration.

She ended the day tired, content, beautifully peaceful, so...well...her.
