One Year Ago Today: Meeting our Boys!

One year ago today, we were in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia meeting our sons for the first time! It was one of the most JOYFUL moments in my life! 




Zachary was so laid-back and sweet. He warmed right up and then fell asleep!




Poor Jeremy was so upset! He had been taken out of his room where he was having fun, and he was not so happy about being introduced to Mommy! Eventually, he wore himself out with the crying and then he fell asleep. Then Mommy cried tears of joy to be holding my son!





We are so thankful to God for entrusting these boys to us to raise and love. They are wonderful sons!
