Two girls grew up 20 minutes from each other on either side of the Mississippi/Louisiana State line.
Two orphan girls became best friends in an orphanage on the other side of the world.
About a year and four months ago, one of the best friends was adopted by the girl that grew up on the LA side.
A year later, the other one was adopted by the girl that grew up on the MS side.
This Easter weekend, the girls were reunited, the two families that adopted them met for the first time, and the two best friends/former orphans sat side by side in worship on this day that we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus.
Only God can work out the details to make that happen. We rejoice as we continually see God's mighty and glorious hand at work.
This was also a weekend of firsts:
Karina's first bike ride.
Karina's first injury in the States.
Yes, the first bike ride and the first injury do go together.
First Easter with her new family and with Granny and Papa.
First time to celebrate a birthday of one of her new siblings.
It was a big weekend. Karina and Storey Grace slept on the way back home.
