Ava Eleanor Argene Strobel
She is home and we are filled with great joy!
There is so much to tell about our journey to Ava and all we have learned in following God and opening our hearts to hear HIS plan for our lives. We could never have imagined the love we would feel not only for Ava but for so many children who we left behind. This little one needed us yes, but we are already feeling that it was us who needed her more than ever.
We are adjusting slowly to her needs and her cues. Her brothers are very dear and watching them interact and talk with her is so awesome!
I cannot wait to continue to process all the joy and much of the heartache I saw in Ethiopia. There is so much to share and it is country who now owns a portion of my heart. In fact, I cannot wait to return but until then we can educate and advocate for the many orphans still in great need.
Stay tuned and thank you all for the amazing and unending support!
