Greeting the Refugee Family

I just got an email from Refugee One requesting that any photos and mention of the name of the family be destroyed so will need to alter this post rather dramatically.

Our church is sponsoring a refugee family from Syria. After several years in Jordan and a few hiccups in the final travel plans, they arrived at O'hare international terminal #5. The girls and I have been praying for them each night and joined the welcome committee at our church to meet and get them situated. I can not imagine the anxiety they must have been feeling but they are under the careful watch of Refugee One, a top notch organization. Hope they are settling in well.

Girls with the welcome sign for the family. Will need to edit the photo before I can repost ...
