This Week Two Years Ago...

I was in Ethiopia meeting my little man. It was such an emotional journey for so many reasons. Every Thanksgiving Holiday for the rest of my life will have so much more meaning to it.

To celebrate, we went to Knott's Berry Farm, a local amusement park with some great friends. Eli loves to go on the rides!!!

Alive and Well!!

I know it's been a very long time and I don't even know if anyone is out there anymore! I'll be the first to admit that I am not a writer and keeping a blog can sometimes feel like homework. Yuck!!! Now I know how my students feel! Regardless, I hope to blog a bit more often than I have in the past year.

Eli and I have been busy just trying to keep up with everyday life! I'll spare you guys most of the boring details but I did want to share with you a very special event that occurred a few weeks ago. In July, E and I had the pleasure of having lunch with a person that will forever be a man so dear to us. Abdissa is the man who, in the summer and fall of 2008, fought very hard in the courts of Ethiopia to make us a family of two. He is also the man who placed a tiny baby boy in my arms confirming the success of his labors and forever making us a family!!!!
