The changes a year can bring

One year ago on July 3rd we returned to the US with our son from Ethiopia.  He was almost 2 and somewhat frightened by the sixteen hour flight home and these strange new things called seatbelts.

For this 4th of July, here is what our happy little immigrant looks like:

What an adorable little brother and sister.  Who but their heavenly Father could have known that these two little people with such different birth heritages and stories would come to be siblings?
This 4th of July we are thankful to have them in our family, just the same as their other brothers and sister. They really enjoyed the fireworks.

We hope by next July 4th to have another smiling little face to add to the mix!

On the current adoption front, we are completing paperwork and appointments fast and furious as you can see on our Timeline page.   We got out first official docs on the way to the birth country and completed our home study visit today as well!
