Grace and Her biological sister Magnalie--09
In October of 2009 and then again in December we had some visits with Grace's sister Magnalie. She lives in S. Grafton, Mass. with a wonderful family that adopted her 5 years ago named the Kangas family. We love that they are so close to us, and try and get the sisters together as much as we can. Here are some photos of the October visit. Madelyn, Grace and I went down for this visit. We had a wonderful time! Magnalie took about an hour and did a wonderful set of braids in Grace's hair. Mag is a Jr. at a technical high school where she is actually being a cosmotologist 3 days a week at the schools' hair salon!
Last month we went down for an overnight as a family to Newport, Rhode Island and visited with the Kangas family at a time share they were staying at. That was super fun! Here are some shots from there! It was right on the ocean and we had a good time in the heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool and hot tubs! We also toured around Newport and were in awe of all of the mansions! This visit, Magnalie put a relaxer in Grace's hair and that turned out really well! We all enjoyed amazing fellowship and a special time of bible reading and devotions, too! Thank you Kangas Family!
