Every year when Emma's birthday comes around, she uses her birthday money to do something for the kids . Today was no different. We had a sponsor who had asked that we take Slavic shopping, and Emma decided that his friends should join in as well as they have no one . It was a great time .. the hardest part of the day was walking out of the orphanage with only the three of them. and not a couple dozen. I would have loved to bring more, but for now we can only do what we can do..

(photo from 4 years ago today ) We are so blessed that we can continue to be a part of his life.
|Then Emma got a call from Jonah .|
|Then to finish off the day , Emma's other family all came for supper. Thank you to Lynn and Ruby for all the food you left .. They all loved it.|
