My Story


I am coming up on my 1-year anniversary of when my heart was broken for the orphan. This time last year I was helping Mckenna make 86 blankets, raising funds to travel to Africa to help open an orphanage and to help a little girl named Lucy better communicate. Today I went back to the same post office to send off for another visa into Sierra Leone and I had to wonder had I known then what I know now...would I have still gone? I live broken hearted for the people I have come to love in Sierra Leone. I feel so conflicted about my possessions here in America. I get frustrated when others don't share my passion. Would I do it again...YEP!!! I have no idea what the future holds for me and my family (including Sam, Betty and Fallah), but I do know that I am a better person because of what I have lived over the past 12 months. I trust God with it all because as the Bible is sure to say "no eye has seen and no ear has heard of the great things God has in store for those who love Him and want His will". I could have never seen or imagined such blessings in my life. This is a recap of "My Story"...

DON'T FORGET TO TURN OFF THE BACKGROUND MUSIC ON THE PLAYLIST AT THE BOTTOM.

  2. Lori, I have never met you but I love you and feel such a bond with you! My family prays daily for your family and my kids simply know you as, "Lori...the lady who loves Lucy like we do!" Thank you for following your heart and following Christ! One day I just know we will have a big reunion with all of our kids together!!!

  4. Oh my!! I am balling. Thanks for sharing the video and the story it tells. I pray that you will have all of your kids under the same roof soon. I listened to a very important sermon in church today basically saying that God has a plan for you and it has already been set in place. We focused on Ephesians 2:10. I am proud of what you and your family stand for and to call you my friend. Take care..........CARRIE
