After a few days, her uncle (pictured left) was able to come back from Somalia. We were able to meet with him and a social worker (pictured right) and receive their blessing to care for her.
We are now pursuing legal guardianship with the goal of adopting her. We are praying that the Lord will open all these doors!
Denise is 12 years old. She loves purple and pink, pretty clothes, math, and computers! She is working really hard on learning English and how to read. Welcome to our family, Denise! We are so thankful that the Lord is blessing us with another daughter and sister!
Please pray for us! Pray that Denise will relax and settle in well! Pray for her as she learns what it means to live in a family with two parents, siblings and boundaries. We praise the Lord that the first few weeks have gone so well! Pray for her as she continues to grieve all her losses. Pray that the Lord will bless our process of blending as a new family! May God be glorified!
