Welcome Kevin. :)

I've been doing a lot more of our updates on facebook lately because it's much quicker to upload photos. If you are on facebook look us up. :) AmyN'Todd Block

Today I had the privilege of going to Guatemala City with Felis and picking up the newest addition to our children's home- Kevin.



 Kevin is 4 years old and the youngest sibling of 3 of the kids currently in our home- Ever, Jeni and Mynor. Some time back we had asked Ever what his biggest dream was and he said to have all of his siblings together.  It was obvious how worried he was about his youngest brother Kevin. So needless to say when we were informed last week that Kevin was found living in another orphanage in the city we were thrilled beyond words. The director in that home was super sweet and also wanted for the kids to be able to live together so we made arrangements for him to move into our home.

It was such an emotional day for little Kevin to say good-bye to the home he had known for the past 9 months...


and also emotional to see him reunited at last with his siblings.


Thank you Lord for your faithfulness... as Ever said, he is now 'complete'. :)

Wonderful news! I'm so happy for these children! It must feel like a heavy stone has been lifted from their hearts.

Amy, I don't even know how to articulate what I feel right now. Humbled for sure. All of them together. All the ways God cares for us, and how much I take for granted. yes, feeling pretty humbled over here. Thank you.

I was wondering how they got separated? Are you able to share that information? I am so glad they are reunited. You are living both of our dreams. So thankful that this orphanage has you!
