The Picture That Made It Real

Friends sent us this picture along with an article about Ethiopia.  Doesn't that girl on the far right look like Lydia?  It really moved me that there is a little girl just the same age, with the same curly hair, holding her little doll as my daughter-but living in total poverty, eating out of the trash that the hotels throw out on the other side of the world. After a lot of tears (just from this photo), I knew what we were supposed to do and Ethiopia became where we were going to adopt from.
