One Year Ago Today In Ethiopia.....

.....we met our son, Elijah. What a beautiful, indescribable day it was. This is the moment we met him - he is not so sure, but he didn't cry. He came to us and let both of us hold him for a long time the first day and finally fell asleep on my shoulder. So much love and we didn't even know him yet...

Soon after coming home - brothers and best friends - only God could have orchestrated this!

We are learning Eli's large and sunny personality.

Turning 3...

Home 1 year. The time has flown by and it feels like Eli has been home forever. We thank God every day for the blessing of our family that He has sewn together from around the globe. The things we would have missed if we hadn't followed God's leading down this road of adoption...

We are in love with you, our precious boy!
