We are going PINK- we are adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. We'll be sharing our journey to adopt our daughter!

We have arrived!!  AWAA picked us up this morning from the airport.  They said we could meet our daughter today.  We were surprised because we thought our first meeting would be Monday.
Baby girl is cute, she loves cuddles and baby dolls.  We were told she has had a rough transition to the transition house but that was not evident today.  We were prepared to be met with rejection.  We were delighted that she let us hold her.  She loved holding in to our family picture. 
Igor- she loves to point at you in the photos I brought!!! 
Henry she holds onto your picture.  Boys- you are going to love her.

Tomorrow we leave for Kombolcha. 
Please pray for a safe journey, and complete healing from my stomach bug. 
We have been told MOWA is only writing 5 letters a day right now- we may not pass court without this letter.  Please pray the letter would be written for our court date - May 18

So happy for you both! What a blessing to get to hold her and start to discover the beautiful girl God has made for your family. We will be praying for that letter.
