Meet Talia...

Talia lives across the ocean...
in Saudi Arabia... and her mom explained it like this...
"how we know about you and poppy dip is something like ~
we know Maryann here in Udhailiyah who adopted 2 children from Ethiopia Maryann knows someone in Dhahran (on the coast of Saudi) because she used to work in Dhahran before Udhailiyah and that someone is a friend of yours from the US (mmmm that must be Adrienne!!)
There are about 10 little girls who all have a poppy dip....we were thinking of getting everyone together to take a picture soon!"

Poppy Dips are on sweet little girls all over the world!!

Our sweet baby girl...

took a bad fall off the front porch steps yesterday...
it was scary and lots of blood...
3 stitches with the BEST doctor in the world--Esther's Uncle Cummins !!
and NO-- I didn't handle it well...
my bigs were more worried about me than sweet little Es...

it makes you stop and take a step back to consider what's important in life!!
Thank the Lord she is okay and will be just fine...
