Now this is the type of update that we’ve been waiting to give for some time. Over the last couple of weeks, the Dee Family embarked on their trip to Colombia to adopt their daughter-to-be. It’s been a trip that, in a small group text, Tony described as, “A once in a lifetime trip. It’s a trip that changes you.”
It brings us great joy to share the following from the Dee Family in their own words:
“BIG ADOPTION NEWS!!!
We can now announce that we are officially a family of 6!!
Please Welcome Mafe to our family!
(Pronounced Mah-Fay- this is her Colombian nickname which she has chosen to adopt as her first name)
Throughout this journey, Jeremiah 29:11 has come up over and over again “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future”.
Hope. That word specifically has shown up everywhere, even in our pre-encuentro meeting, our in-country rep talked about Hope. I almost started crying because I just knew that Mafe’s middle name should be Hope. “
And now it’s a matter of time, hopefully in the next several days, that arrangements will be made, and they’ll work their way back to the states and we can welcome all 6 of them home.
For now though, it is with warm hearts that Team Runners Doing Good congratulates Jayme, Tony, the girls, and young Mafe on their new life together as a family of 6. We couldn’t be happier for you all.
