Buddy Walk

Yesterday was the TDSN Buddy Walk. We were fortunate enough to have two very special guests at this amazing event - Andrea Roberts and her son Reece :) It was so amazing to get to meet the woman who started it all as well as the inspiration behind it all. Thank you so much to both of you for coming.

Here we have Milana and Reece just hanging out and enjoying a quiet moment. Didn't our table look great?? We would not have been able to pull it off without Kristin who organized the table and took care of all the details. Thanks Kristin!
We got a great group shot of Andrea with 3 families who recently brought home their children. From left to right we have Andrea, Nadia, Kristin, Jenn, Milana, Nikki, and Ezekiel.

My twins Riley and Peyton are standing behind Nadia, Milana, and Reece. They all had a blast. Fortunately for Kristin and I Nadia and Milana were content to just chill in the strollers for most of the BW. And of course thanks to Grandma Paul (Kristin's Mom) for keeping Milana occupied when I was helping with the table.

This is my favorite picture. Milana and Andrea. Without Andrea we would have never found Milana and she would still be in an orphanage. Without Andrea so many children would still be in orphanages or institutions and would not have the quality of life or the loving families that they have today. Thank you Andrea for all you do! You are an amazing woman!


  1. Amen Sister! Great day, great helpers, and a wonderful opportunity to meet the woman God is using to bring so many orphans into families!!!

  2. Looks like a fun day for everyone! How neat to meet others walking the same walk. May God bless your efforts to get the word out about the children in need!

  3. The table looked fantastic! Good thing the kiddos were happy in their strollers, it was a little damp out there for wandering. :-)
