A Wonderful Day!

I have posted before about one of my sisters (Debbie) and her husband (Troy) adopting 3 siblings from Ethiopia a little over a year ago. In fact my Christmas card this last December was a drawing of the 3 children. The two older sister siblings were adopted by a family a few towns away from my sister and her husband so all the children are able to see each other quite frequently. 
The 9 year old twins (my sister's children in the red dresses) were baptized this last summer. (The little boy has to wait since he is only 6.) When the twins were baptized, the two older sisters were not too sure about their siblings being baptized and the oldest was not happy about it at all. 
This last Saturday, on the 10th of January, the two older siblings were baptized. What a wonderful event! I was not there but I heard all about it. I am so happy for them. Just wonderful news. My sister said the spirit was so strong there and if it was how strong the spirit was at the baptism for the twins, I KNOW that everyone present could feel the spirit strongly. Life is grand! And I am so blessed! I love the gospel. It is the best thing in my life.

Wow... that is such a great story! How did your sister find out about these children? Did she go through an adoption agency?
