Miryango is family is kinyarwanda, the language our boys hear most. This weekend we put together photo albums to send to Etienne and Daniel. Amazingly, we are hearing from Americans who remember our little buddies from volunteering at the orphanage or are currently working there. The report is that each is smiley and affectionate-which makes this mama even more anxious to snuggle them!
This week you'll see a new gadget on the blog- a spot to order "Rwanda Adoption Project" t-shirts. One final (hopefully HUGE) fundraiser. Please forward this to anyone you know who may be interested in a retro,fashion tee for a good cause!
We can't post pics of Etienne and Daniel until they are legally a Higgins, but if you'd like to put a face to a name, just email me. I am more than happy to show them off!

  2. Yes, yes, yes we'd love to see a picture of your precious boys! Email is I can't wait to order t-shirts and I'm also so glad that we'll probably travel together after all! Praying for us both as we wait for court!

  6. Hi, I was a volunteer at the Home of Hope in Kigali last summer (May-July 2008). I absolutely love to read stories of the beautiful children I met being adopted. Not sure if I met your two, but I wish you the best of luck. If anyone has any questions about the orphanage or Rwanda in general I would be happy to answer at
