OMG PBJ!!!

A very dear friend, Dawn, who happens to be the BEST, got her hands on a bunch of pictures from the orphanage where we think PBJ was sent. She asked if i wanted to see them, to see if I might spot her.

Oh my aching heart YES! Just to know a little bit about how she is doing, where she is, if she is even alive! Yes it hurts, and it always will, but oh yes, yes yes.

And sure enough, in one photo, partially hidden by a house mother, sitting on a window ledge, there she is. Hair in pigtails, sneakers dangling down, eyes looking at the camera. She looks so good.

For those of you who do not know the story of our sweet baby girl, I will create some links later to her story. Right now I need to cry and look at her sweet face for a while.

Oh Dawn, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!

Wendy I am THRILLED that you have received information and photos of PBJ. I can't promise I can connect but if you send me the information I can do my best to visit there and get some updates when I go down in May. Do you think they would allow her to have a care package? HUGS!!!

She is GORGEOUS! It must be so hard and so wonderful at the same time to see that gorgeous girl with her pigtails. God DOES have her in His hands. Prayers for you as you burn a hole into that picture with your eyes :)

I am SOOOO very thrilled you have this glimpse of her. I often think of her and still want SO much for her to be home with you. I cannot imagine what you must be feeling seeing her sweet face.

Our beautiful girl. I am crying with you. I hope the day will come when she knows how much she is loved by you and by all of us.

What an adorable little girl. She has grown so much. She looks healthy and it looks like she is thriving. Is there any chance you still could bring her home?? God has a plan for her and we do hope and pray your family is in his plan. Thank you for sharing this precious picture. Hugs to you and your family...
