Haybat's Bridal Shower

This weekend some friends and I co-hosted a bridal shower for this sweet Iraqi refugee girl. I've known her for the 6 years we've lived in Turkey. She calls me "mom."

She's become a sister to my girls.
She's engaged to a wonderful Christian guy, and is waiting for the green light to immigrate to America. It's one of those times when you are so happy for her that she is finally about to go, but you realize as you smile and tell her to 'go', a piece of your heart will rip out and go with her.
Her shower was lovely. She was the picture of beauty and grace. This mama was proud of her.
