I hope my mom doesn't mind that I keep taking over her blog.  I wanted to introduce you to 2 of my cousins.  Marco and Mateo live in Costa Rica (rough life, I know)!  They were both adopted from Mexico and I think they are pretty cool.  

Here is a sweet comment left on the blog while everyone was in Ethiopia to get me.  It said, "Thank the Lord Avery is feeling better. We have been praying for her. Mateo went to bed early tonight because he did not feel well. He asked if we could pray for Abe one last time as an orphan because tomorrow he would not be an orphan any more!! I started to cry!! He also said that he and Abe will have a special bond because the are both adopted. To God be the Glory! We love you all, Aunt Shanna, Uncle Luis, Mateo and Marco  (Shanna is Moody's sis)

How great is that?  Thank you Lord for my whole family.

It is wonderful to find some children who were adopted from Mexico! We are in the process right now of adopting siblings from there and hadn't met anyone yet who has experience adopting from there!
