Meeting Elijah

Dressing like Daddy

We thought it was funny they are still proudly displaying this poster at the airport...Of course, in Ethiopia it is 2001 so Boeing still has 7 years to deliver.

As promised, here is the picture of Matthew playing hide-and-seek. Look closely.

Yes, that's an electrical outlet in our shower at the hotel in Addis.

I have been stalking your blog, after seeing the link on Facebook. What a blessing! I am sooo happy for you guys. I think I commented a while back to welcome you to Motherhood, so welcome to your husband to single-Fatherhood when Mommy is sick! haha What an awesome thing God has done in the life of little Eli. He couldn't be a luckier little guy. I hope you guys have a wonderful year full of "firsts"!

Congrats on bringing your son home (finally!). We'll be praying for the many adjustments you'll all be making and of course that little Eli will round out nicely :)
