We are the Hansen family of 5 and soon to be 6. God has touched our hearts and led us to expand our family and reach out to the fatherless. We are currently in the process of adopting a little girl from Haiti, our sweet Emiline. What a roller coaster ride. A friend warned me, but I couldn't have imagine the emotional ride. We have been matched with her since June and hope to be able to bring her home by next fall, all dependent on paperwork. She currently lives in an orphanage with 70 other children. Although we haven't met her in person, she is very much a part of our family and hearts. We continue to pray for her and Haiti and God's speed with the paperwork.
This is just a quick overview of where we are in the process. We have been blessed in so many ways I can hardly keep up. God is so good! We continue to be encouraged at His faithfullness to us as we step out in faith toward His will for our family.
We are off to Haiti for our first visit to meet our little girl, so the inspiration for the blog. I hope to be able to post and show pictures of us at the orphanage with her. Please pray for our safety, a connection with our little girl, and the family at home.
