Introducing Our Sons!

We passed court and are now the proud parents of two wonderful boys!


We'll be returning to Ethiopia in less than a month for our appointment at the U.S. Embassy to get the boys' visas and will bring them home in early September!

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to all of our dear family and friends who have supported us through this amazing adoption journey. We're especially grateful for the support we've found right here in the blog world from other adoptive families. Somehow, it feels like we've been "in the trenches" together, and the friendships that have formed along the way are true treasures. Thank you!

Oh my heart is all smushy. They're gorgeous, and I'm SO HAPPY for you all. (I typed both, then had to fix it to all)

Congratulations on finding your boys! I can't wait until you're all home where you belong.
