Have You Seen This?

Denalee Chapman February 04, 2015

An important story of a couple’s return to the United States after an ordeal in Ethiopia.

Aaron and Nicole Marshall spent two years trying to adopt their precious little one. Disheartening and painful to the adoptive families and to the orphans, this family hopes that the process can improve and “speed up” for other families. The pray their ordeal in Ethiopia will not be repeated with improvements.

Home now, two years later, the Marshalls would encourage families who are in the midst of adopting to stay strong and to push forward. Don’t get down, don’t get discouraged, and keep working. The reward is worth it!
