News From Lois!

I just received an email from Lois! I LOVE hearing from her!

Another family adopting from Luckyhill just got their approval and Joe, the husband, is flying to Ghana Monday to pick up their daughter! They live nearby; it will be great for Sarah to have another little girl close who shares her heritage.
Luckyhill's website is up and running, I'll put a link on my sidebar, but here it is again, in case you are interested http://luckyhillorphanage.org/home.html . They are trying to raise money to build a new facility - as you can see, the current one is inadequate on so many levels. Actually, pretty much all of our money is going towards running the school - which is awesome.

And the best news of all... Lois is arranging for us to call Kingsley and Sarah! We will be able to talk to them both! We are ecstatic! (Realistically, we are not expecting much by way of conversation from Sarah, but still, we are excited!) Hopefully we will be able to call next week! Don't worry - I'll keep you posted.
p.s. Drop me a line if you have a question about Sarah or the school you would like me to ask.

Jessica, Wow, this is all amazing. This is the first I've read about Sarah. She's ADORABLE! I'm so excited for you. It sounds like it was meant to be. I hope everything goes smoothly.

Hi Sorenson fam, it's Branden from Robert's work. Congrats on the adoption, I was so happy to hear today from Robert that you guys are going to be able to get Sarah, she is a cute girl. Good luck with the rest of the process.

Hi Jessica,
I am trying to find Lois that you speak so highly of. I am glad that I revisited your blog. The last time I visited was when you just saw a photo of Sarah. It is fun to see the process and how quickly everything is moving. Probably seems like an eternity for you. I am in Utah for the summer. Staying in the West Jordan area. I would love to get in contact with you, and see if I could get some information on Lois. She sounds amazing. My contact information is jenter6@yahoo.com if you want to email me then I could give you my phone #. Please contact me, I am excited to talk to you.

Thanks,
Jenifer Terry
