Has it really been a year?

Can you believe it?  Today we celebrate one year of freedom for the boys!  One year ago today we took the boys through the gates of the orphanage for the last time!  It has been crazy to look at the pictures of our time over there and see how much the boys have grown and matured!  They left skinny and scared little boys and have blossomed into mature young men!

To God be the Glory!!!!
