~Round Two~

Mama's second trip to Latvia was conducted safely and successfully, a couple of weeks ago. The Lord blessed the trip greatly, and Mama, Beth and Madi are looking ahead with great expectation to the final trip to bring home the four new little boys!

Here are a few pix of mumsie's last trip...
