We are back.  We are tired.  We are in love.

So much to share about our trip.........it was amazing and heart-breaking.  

Thank you so much for the love, support and prayers.  They carried us through.

Hoping to have the videos tweaked a bit and on the blog soon! :)  If you would like to view the slideshows, send me an email or a comment and I will forward you the links to view all of them (that we have so far!) 


I left a huge piece of my heart at KVI, and I can't wait to return and see the kiddos that fill these shoes! I have so much to say about the staff, ministry and children of Kingdom Vision International. :)

Abenezer with one of the wonderful nannies at KVI!
