Yesterday was the baby shower for my friend Eileen, who will soon be bringing home 3 children from Ethiopia. The weather was gorgeous, so Theresa set things up on her spacious front porch and yard. Check out Eileen's blog to see a group photo of all the ladies and young ladies present. Eileen, Jerry, & Ellie will bring this photo with them when they travel to Africa , and give it to the birth mother, a 20-yr-old woman who is dying of AIDS. They want her to know how many people are waiting back here in NC to welcome her children , to love them and watch out for them. The excitement and joy here on this end is matched by the pain and sorrow in another life on the other side of the world.
