Family’s in Africa

I was just reading a blog that my mom showed me and it really caught my attention and made me really excited to go to Africa. The blog is about a family adopting a six year old little girl from the same orphanage as us. Last Thursday they found out that their little girl was cleared for her visa and they were able to go pick her up.  They got on their plane that day. When they got to Kinshasa they went straight to the orphanage and got their little girl. There were tears of joy everywhere. They took their little girl to the place they were staying and just hung out with each other. I think her name is Princess because they keep calling her that. Then she says things she was glad she brought and things that she wished she brought. I’m going to be reading over that if I raise enough money to go. They went back to the orphanage to let Princess say goodbye to the workers and the kids there.  They shared some pictures of the orphanage and the kids there.  It wasn’t hard to pick out Princess in the pictures because she was SOOO happy.  You could tell that she was now with her Forever Family.

I hope that will be me and my little brother in a few months.

Lucky Number 13

Monday, January 2, 2012

Today we just got to number thirteen on the referral list we moved from fifteen to Thirteen!

In the adoption process you have to do a home study where a person comes and checks out your family and your home, this is to see if you would be a good family to adopt a child. When your home study is done you get put on the referral list with the orphanage, when you get to number one on the referral list you are next in line to get a little boy/girl.

We were number fifteen about a month ago now we are number thirteen.

This means since we have been on the referral list two lucky family’s have had children referred to them.

We are very excited to be moving up the list.

Starting My Blog

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

HI, my name is Tia. I’m the oldest of three and soon to be four. My family is in the process of adopting a little baby boy from the D.R. Congo. I am sooo excited to be adopting. Our home study is complete but we’re waiting for the report. My friends, family and I are just dying to get my little brother. It will also be nice to have another family member, and my brother can have a little brother to teach how to play sports, and my little sister will have someone to hang out with while we’re at school. Once we get my little brother I know he will love our home and where we live. I’m pretty sure I am the most excited about adopting a new little brother. My grandparents are in Africa serving a mission and they put pictures on their blog of the most gorgeous little kids in the world and each picture just gets me more and more excited! I love my family and I just can’t wait until we get a new member in our family.
