I went to the His Heart for Orphans Adoption fellowship Sunday afternoon. This is where families who have adopted or who, like myself, just have a heart for adoption, get together quarterly for a fun day. Aimee and Tommy Poche head this ministry sponsored by Healing Place Church. They are also the parents of 8 beautiful children. You can read their amazing story here. Aimee is also the designer of Sew Sensible Patterns.
The fellowships are always enjoyable and today was no different. Lots of great food, beautiful weather, great conversation and fun for the children. There were many different countries, cultures and blends of families represented. Some of the countries represented were China, Taiwan, Africa and Peru as well as several from the US. It is so awesome to hear the stories of how they became a family. To have all of these families with children from all over the world end up in a backyard in South Louisiana together enjoying each other's company.
