Sorry things are so quiet here right now. I am up to my ears in children these days, but wanted to remind you that I am sharing the story of our journey to our new girls over at my Ethiopia Adoption Blog! God is gracious….

  1. I am so happy for your new daughters and for your family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Your post on the adoption blog brought tears to my eyes

  2. awhhh!! GREAT picture! congratulations!!

  3. yay!!!!! I’m smiling and crying all at once. Blessings abound.

  4. What a beautiful picture. Congratulations!

  5. Congratulations!! Your family is beautiful!

  6. Eeek! You are WITH the girls! What a great picture! I totally didn’t expect to find this, but I am glad I clicked here! yay!

  7. The post on your other blog had me crying, I’m sooooo glad you guys are together now!

    And I agree, now that I see a picture of them with you, they’re smaller than I expected. Your older daughter does exude maturity, and I easily forget that she’s not older than 11.

    Then again, my kids are three and under, so my frame of reference is off. Anyone over five is huge!

  8. How wonderful!! Ok the tears are flowing.

  9. Beautiful picture!
    I am thrilled for you!!!

  10. Oh, amazing! Thanks for sharing those precious moments with us. Congratulations!!

  13. Mary,

    It’s so good to see you w/ your girls. I was in tears reading about your 1st meeting. What a wonderful thing for you all to have found each other.

  14. Mary,

    I am praying for y’all and checking your blog a lot to keep updated. I’m so excited for you all and hoping that everything goes smoothly.

  16. Truly fascinating! I’m so happy for y’all.

  17. You are all so beautiful and I am praying for your trip and am so happy for you! Hugs-Kimberley

  18. YAAY!! My first blog visit in about a month (traveling, housesitting in house w/no internet–yes such things still exist in America, who knew?) and I arrive to find that photo!! Congrats and I’m so happy for you all! 🙂 I’m off to read a few back posts and follow the story a bit.

  19. Ok I’m back from the Ethiopia Adoption blog, where I have to login to leave comments so I figured I’d just leave one here. Tell your 2 y/o I agree that the muzzein who murders sleep is “mean!” I can relate to the toilet description 😉 And I’m sitting here wiping away tears of joy for you all. Congrats again!

  20. I can’t wait to go read your story. My favorite way to describe the feeling you’re having is, “Dripping with kids.” On an ice-cream cone the drips are the best part.

  21. Congratulations!

  22. They’re beautiful. Congratulations on your new additions.

  23. Congratulations! What a wonderful picture!
