One year ago this week....

.........we left America to get our baby girl!!!!!!

Getting our luggage at the Ethiopian Airport.

The first time Mike held our baby. She was so scared!

My heart was aching for her.

Back home in America.....the WHOLE family finally together!!!

Happy One Year Gotcha Day!!!!!!!!!

We Love You More Than Words Can say!!!

The LORD has done great things for us,

and we are filled with joy.

Psalm 126:3

New Numbers!!

We got our new numbers last week.
We are so excited!!
Here is a picture of my kiddos "reading" on the couch!!
Our first grader can't sit still when she reads and the little ones follow:)

This weekend I went to a hair "workshop" for my baby girl's hair.

It was so great to see so many other sweet Ethiopian children.

Here is a picture of my little lady hanging with some new friends.
