Monday is a very special day. Monday our family will grow. We will have a new little daughter. She is 4 and a half, with beautiful brown eyes and the most amazing, curly, brown hair. Her smile lights up the room, and her determination to live life despite the odds amazes me. She is a survivor. She was once lost. And she is now found. She will be coming home in January, to a daddy who will adore her and spoil her rotten (because he has been waiting for a little girl for 19 years), and five brothers who are over the moon excited for her to come home.
I think back over the year and a half we have been on this journey, and I am amazed and so very grateful. One family's desire to adopt an orphan, to give her a family and a chance at life, has become a journey for literally hundreds of people. Sofi's journey is a beautiful story of love. Not only love from our family, but love from that have supported our fundraisers, or have donated what you can to bring her home.
It's amazing to think that soon, we will have this beautiful girl....who was born to someone on the other side of the world....and will be our daughter forever.
We are fully funded as far as fees are concerned, but we still need to figure out our travel money. Now is the final push....to raise money to get her outta there!!!!!
I know you all have stood by us...you have donated time and again. You have shared and shared and shared her story. We are here, humbly standing before you, thanking you for all of that. Because of you, Sofi is one less. One less tragic orphan. One less statistic. One less mouth for that orphanage to feed.
One more person to add to the Jensen Ohana.
