Dimples

Dimples2-1

Our family experienced a terrible tragedy yesterday.

Dimples was born in October 2001 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She became a part of our family eight years ago and it was our great joy and honor to love and care for her.

Yesterday morning, Russ and Lisa were driving Dimples to Montana for a holiday visit with friends when they were involved in an automobile accident. Dimples passed away instantly in the collision.

Dimples3

Our hearts are heavy as we grieve the loss of our sweet girl. We loved her deeply and are heartbroken by this tragedy. We thank God that she did not suffer, and that she is now completely healed and at peace in the arms of Jesus.

Lisa is in the hospital with fractures and temporary nerve damage, but we expect her to be discharged in the next couple of days. Russ is unharmed. All the Qualls children are together, waiting for Russ and Lisa to return home.

Instead of emailing Lisa or sending personal messages on social media, please send condolences and prayers to [email protected].

I'm deeply honored to be the co-author, together with the late Dr. Karyn Purvis, of The Connected Parent; it is her final written work. I love speaking at events for adoptive and foster parents. I'm also the co-founder of The Adoption Connection, a podcast and resource site for adoptive moms. I mentor and encourage adoptive moms so you can find courage and hope in your journeys of loving your children well.

    Lisa- your journey with Dimples was what helped our family reach out and get help for our adopted son. You were so kind when you took the time to speak with me on the phone. That was a year and a half ago. Praising God for Dimples life that and for the healing that took place this past year because of the faithfulness of you and Russ. So, so saddened by your loss. We will be praying in the upcoming days.

    I keep coming back and looking at your blog, sure I didn't really read it right and that instead the entry would be about the special time Dimples was enjoying with the gal from her program and the visit with her friend and her family.

    Dimples couldn't have been a better nickname – with her bright smile, the spunky twinkle in her eyes, and her adorable dimples evident in so many of your photos of her – especially lately.

    Just as I have for years, I'll be praying for your family, especially now as you each deal with the loss of your Dimples.

    Our hearts are broken and our thoughts are with you. Such a tragic loss. We were so looking forward to seeing you all in Helena this week. Nina has lost her best friend, you have lost your beloved daughter and we have all lost a delightful light in our lives. Rest in peace, Kalkidan, we all loved you well.

    I've started a reply too many times now. And even debated if there is anything I could write that would remotely repay how Youve helped my family over the years. I wish I could offer up more. My prayers are with you to feel His arms around you now.

    I don't know if you remember me but I came to visit your family when I was working with REACH. I met your sweet little girl when she was just new to your family and remember her being unsure of me but sweet and kind. Your family was so welcoming and kind to me when I went to visit you and it was a joy to welcome you all into the REACH family (I actually have a necklace that one of your daughters gave me still). I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet daughter. She was a light even to me those eight years ago…I remember her well. Praying that you feel God's comfort and compassion during this time. God be with you all.

    So shocked. Heartbroken. Many prayers for all of you, for all of us — we grieve together with you, as you gave us the gift of sharing her life story. Now I hope we may in some small way help share the burden of grief.

    I am so incredibly heartbroken over the loss of your sweet Dimples. Her smile was so radiant and her zest for life contagious. Your love for her was truly amazing and such an inspiration to us all. May you feel the love of us all may you especially feel the love of Jesus who is holding you in His arms as you grieve.

    I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart is breaking for you. I have followed your story for so long. IT has given me strength and courage as we battle our issues with our son from Africa. I am in shock for you. May the Lord bless and keep you and your family.
