Check it out!!!!!!!

My friend, Jen and I are working on a list. . .you may contribute if you'd like. . .
Here it is: Our list of reasons why Acres of Hope is the best agency around:

1. They love Jesus and it shows!
2. They are involved not just in matching children, but run the orphanage itself and do MANY other relief projects in the country (I could go on and on about this b/c it makes me passionate)
3. Melodie's blog. . .mostly b/c I get to see her character and how much she loves the Lord which makes my wait so much easier b/c I know she's loving my little one!
4. The schedule! Yes, I have the actual schedule of what Davis is doing during the day. Check the right hand side of my blog to see it if you haven't already.
5. The communication. . .they have a yahoogroup set up so all of the parents can ask each other questions and the AoH staff pops up to answer ones as well
6. The other families. . .I have already developed friendships (of course, they are starting as E-Friends) with many of the other moms. I even have Rae and Robin on speed dial!
7. THE PICTURES!!!!!!! I received 2 pictures with the original referral. 2 more on his 2nd birthday and today I received 5 more pictures!!!!!!! In case you didn't know, that is UNHEARD of in adoption circles!! So, thank you AoH! I thank my God whenever I think of YOU! I tried to change the direction of the bottom pics, but it just won't do it. . .so you'll have to crane your neck!

Brandi,
I love the pictures. He is such a cutie! Another thing that I love about AOH is that the people that we deal with really understand what a parent goes through with international adoption because they've been through it themselves. They truly know the ups and downs, the paperwork and the waiting, and the government issues on both ends. You gotta love that. Thanks for sharng your list.
Love,
Lori

Oh my goodness... he is SUCH a sweetie! Now you have more pics to print. We have various and assorted pictures of Henry all over the house on mirrors, tables, desks, windowsills, and the fridge! :)
I agree with everything on your list regarding AoH. We are tremendously blessed and so are our children.
Thanks for the book recommendation... as soon as I can get my hands on a copy I'll be reading it for sure!
Blessings,
Amber

Brandi,
It is not possible to look at his smile and not smile back!! What an engaging, joyful, countenance. His face displays the kind of zeal I "hear" in your posts. Praise God for the sweet, sweet blessing of Davis in your life!!!

Hey Brandi,

I am Robin's friend, Michael. I was checking out you web site and had to tell you that he is such a cutie pie! Praise God for what He is doing in yours as well as little Davis life.
Loving Him,
Michael :)

How sweet of them to send you more pictures! Sounds like a great organization! Hey, he looks happy again:) Love you!

Donna said...

Hey what about me?? haha-
And Patty? haha

I think we do amazing work for the time we put in. We are happy to do so for God's Kingdom- It is all about families!

Patrick Berryman said...

Ditto to all of those. Even though our children are an ocean away from us, the communication, blog, message board, and PICTURES help us keep them close in our hearts until we have them in our arms.

We started down the road to China and viewed AOH as simply a quick detour before we got back on that track, but this experience so far is so positive that it will be unfair to compare it to other agencies.
