Welcome. This is part of our story about how God is building our family through adoption and teaching us about HIS family. Going through this process is giving us more understanding about how He has adopted us. We are HIS children, still growing and maturing and developing in our relationship with Him.

We are in Ethiopia!!!

We arrived LATE on Fri / Sat morning. Got a night of sleep and went to the Transition House on Sat. afternoon to see our boys. Can not begin to tell you the swelling  of my heart and the tears that came when we pulled in and saw E. walking down the stairs towards us. :o) Amazing.
E has been really quiet but is really opening up... today is Sunday and we have volleyed a beach ball, made up our  own game of bags, played with transformer cars and today during some down time, E just spontaneously started singing to himself and using his imagination and playing!!! it was sweet to see. We went for a walk today to a lunch spot and while the group was waiting for me to catch up ( I had S in the baby wrap, E. held out his hand to me for me to hold his had when we walked. After lunch, the resturant took a while to get our bill and he layed down in his seat and put his head in my lap. I love that he is begining to reach out to us. yea. This morning while Dan and baby were still snoozing, E and I sat in his bed and filled out a sticker book together. He is BRIGHT.
S is doing great too. He is a happy baby. He laughs and giggles and is so bright eyed....and BUSY. He is very fun. Dan got a crash course in diaper changing again. His first one was a doosey!  I laughed so hard ...and still chuckle when I think about it. The DRAMA over changing a diaper. LOL.
You could pray for us for S. He has quite a bit of congestion. He got up at 2:30 a.m. and had a hard time getting back to sleep do to being stuffy. I put him in the carrier and he fell asleep on my chest, up right and that seemed to work well.
We have court first thing in the morning! We met with our in-country representative for us and the other families. He went over the questions the judge may ask us tomorrow and when the judge is done...he/she will say "They are yours."  WOW.  

well... this has been a quick note. not sure how it all sounds. just trying to put down some quick info for you. we are in a hotel lobby in order to get internet. The kids are getting restless. :o) dinner time.
Oh... skyped with Madeline Toby and Mae just a few min. ago. LOVE THEM!!!! 
Bless you all.

Having a wonderful time with the boys.
