Why did we chose Malot's Hope for our name? Oh, so glad you asked!
Curtis and I met, once upon a time, in Ethiopia. We were over there with an organization named Youth with a Mission (YWAM). While we were there we lived on a base with a street kids ministry. One of the little girls who was there was about 3, and so cute. We loved her to pieces! We always said if we were older(and of course married!) we would just adopt her and take her home. So I guess you could say our collective desire to adopt came very early in our relationship!

While Malot herself is older now, and likely no longer there, little girls just like her are. Little toddlers in need of a home and love. And that, is why she is our namesake, and forever in our hearts!
