This week, I will be posting on the story of Marra Frehiwot’s story. She is the young daughter of Sten and Amy Olsson. I have never met the Olsson’s personally, but we have walked the adoption journey together and we hope to someday meet. This is a difficult story of love, redemption, illness, God, faith, and loss. Please be respectful in any comments made as the Olsson’s have given me permission to share their story, as written by Amy, as well as pictures.
MEET MARRA FREHIWOT AND HER FAMILY
This week is my week to “unpack” some emotional boxes that I have had to compartmentalize in order to continue to mother my five other children (including one brand new to family life and all the challenges that come with that) to support and love my husband, to serve God and to not self destruct. Some may cringe and become unsettled reading my raw memories and emotions, but this process is very healing for me. Thank you to everyone who continues to love and pray for us. We need you. We are grateful.
