Philippe and Patricia's Orphanage and MORE!

Here is our boy! I can only assume that he hasn't had his picture taken that much in his life and he just isn't familiar (yet!) with "CHEEEEEEEEEEESE"

Sometimes kids get to go to the hotel pool with visiting families :)
Gotta love that hair!
This is the big girls room. Where Patricia sleeps...

Too bad we can't bring them all home. Let us pray that our Gracious Lord will raise up sponsors to give them good Christian homes.

Some one asked me a few months ago, "Lee, why are you son and daughter-in-law adopting two black children from Haiti?"

I answered, "First, to give them a loving, Godly home and good upbringing. Second, to give them an excellent education so one can go back to Haiti as a doctor and one go back as a missionary to minister to their people." There wasn't a second question.

God blesses us so we can be a blessing to others. Let us not hoard the "American Dream" to ourselves. Or as Pastor John Piper puts it, "Don't Waste Your Life!!"

Amen, Brother John, amen!!

There is a little cooking room but it gets so hot that the cook kept passing out so they built that little shelter.

These are wonderful...=) thank you to Kathy who shared so many from her trip. I can't wait until you bring out Philippe's smile.

OK, first of all I have to say you have the most amazing future Grandpa. Mr. Shelton III, you rock!!
Secondly, what a blessing to get more pictures. I just love your daughter's hair!!! Bet you can't wait to fill it with pretty bows.
Third, if you don't have a pool, you might want to find access to one! Your son looks like he really enjoys the water!
