Referralversary


I cannot believe it’s been 1 year since we received the CALL! We received the call early in the afternoon and were blessed to see these pictures of Aklil and Embafresu, only 1 month and 1 day old! They weighed 6 lb, 1 oz and 6 lb, 3 oz. We are blessed beyond belief! These

Big Changes for M&M


This is part of our catching up phase (part 3)!

2nd Trip – Coming Home


This was truly a journey like none other I’ve ever been on. 2 adults – 2 babies – 30 hours of bus ride, airports, plane rides and car ride home. As we started out we talked about how important humor was going to be, because if we did not have the humor we’d probably be

2nd Trip – Day 6


What a busy day – our last day in Ethiopia before heading home! Since Tara had never been to Ethiopia before and had pretty much only been in the hotel room, airport and Embassy office, I really wanted her to get out a little bit. So another adoptive family was going shopping and I made
