New Week: Welcome the Lauze Family

Happy Monday! Hope you had a fantastic weekend! Welcome our featured family of the week - the Lauze family! Dan and Jennifer Lauze have one daughter, Amber. The Lauzes are adopting two daughters from Latvia. You can follow the Lauzes' adoption journey at their adoption Facebook page. Dan shared this with me about their adoption:

"We hosted an orphan from Latvia last summer for five weeks through Project 143 which really helped open our eyes and hearts to Latvia. We have two family members that have adopted from Latvia this year and this is how we heard about one of the girls that we are adopting. When my brother in law was in Latvia he met a little girl that was the roommate to his little girl. It was her story that caused us to move forward with the adoption quickly. Recently we found out from the children's ministry that she has an older sister that she has never met, we of course started the process of adopting her as well. We are excited to be able to bring these two sisters together and raise them as the family that God intended for them."
