Marine Corps Marathon OCT 25, 2009 Washington DC
Welcome. Hopefully the article in The Avery Post "Running With a Purpose" By Phillip Greene has brought you to this blog. I must admit it has brought me to post this today :).
Our wonderful family members Mark and Kathryn T. Maya sure are both doing what they can to help us bring our girls home from Ethiopia. Running in the Marine Corps Marathon is just one way. So a big shout out must go to them!! Thank you doesn't even come close to how we feel.
There are an estimated 143,000,000 orphans in the world, its nearly impossible to comprehend that large of a number....143,000,000 orphans standing shoulder to shoulder will go around the 10,913 mile perimeter of the USA nearly 4 times.
143,000,000 orphans in a single file line would reach around the Earth over two time... Adoption is a call from God. To some we seem crazy. People question our decision in many ways.... However, GOD has called us to adopt from ETHIOPIA and we feel Blessed!!!
