Our Beautiful And Amazing Telma is 18!!!


It's hard to believe that only 6 and 1/2 years ago, Telma came into our lives! Many of you know her personally and know what a gift she is to us and to many others! It's hard to sum up how proud we are of our precious daughter! Telma still has a real heart for the poor and she loves reading about Mother Theresa and her work in India. She wants to work with the poor one day. Right now, she's enjoying helping to care for her three new brothers and is still digging deep in the Word of God!

When Telma came into our family, she was almost 12 and tested at a 1st grade level. She's completed 2 years of schooling for every year she's been here. She recently took her SAT's and scored amazingly high! She has worked very, very hard in school
and her last day is this Friday! She is officially graduating from High School! I just want to honor her in this post and tell her how very proud her daddy and I are of her. We love you Sweetheart and we are amazed at all the Lord has done in your life! We can't wait to see some of the awesome plans that God has ahead for you! You are so precious and we love you!!! I can't believe you're 18! Our sweet girl is growing up so fast.

We love you Telma (Meemers)! You are so precious to our hearts!!
