We didn't have a flower girl in our wedding 27 years ago today.
However, now we find ourselves the parents of three flower girls! They'll drop rose pedals in Tessa and Aaron's upcoming wedding ceremony. All three of these flower girls are very special young ladies because all of them have lived in Russian orphanages. I couldn't resist sharing some photos taken yesterday when they were trying on dresses for the big day in March.
Here's the littlest, Oksana. Until six weeks ago, she had lived in an orphanage all her life. We praise the Father of the Fatherless for His goodness in liberating this little one. "He is to us a God of deliverances." (Ps. 68:20)
