Our daughter Lila was born in Liberia.  So, Liberia will always have a special place for us.  Someday we hope to go there with her - when she is older.  (We haven't been there since she was escorted.)  We have tried to learn all about her country, and we know others who have been there.  We give to several missions that support children and orphanages in Liberia.  Through these organizations we are able to get a picture of life there.

There is one blog that I love reading - about Ashley serving in Liberia.  Reminds me of Kisses from Katie: A Story of Relentless Love and Redemption, a little.  Maybe you would enjoy Ashley's story as well:  Love in Liberia.  She works with Orphan Relief and Rescue, and you read their blog as well.

Lila has about 4 other girls in the area that she is friends with from the same orphanage in Liberia.  How cool is that - and we found each other in the midst of our adoptions.  The girls have been forming wonderful friendships over the years!

Other organizations serving in Liberia that we follow:  Vision Trust, God's Kids, and Lifesong for Orphans.  I know Samaritan's Purse also has projects in Liberia.

I know it is important to Lila to know about where she came from and how God brought her to us.  We are so excited to see what God does in her life.

Cody even has a connection to Liberia since his birth dad is from there.
