We’re back. I’ve blocked the flight and travel from Ethiopia home out of my mind and only have the best of thoughts about our trip and ever-forming adventures with our children. So much to say, but no time to write.
Over the next few days, we’ll post some photo highlights from our trip and maybe someday again I’ll have time to write about the great ways in which God has shown Himself to us through this adoption and these two new little tikes who are nowfamiliarizing themselves with our home.
In the meantime, we’re having lots of laughs over here as we try and figure out this parenting thing … and loving the children God has given us.
tonight, we stopped about nine times throughout dinner to pray … Caleb kept asking to “salut” (“pray” in Amharic) and we certainly are not going to resist his fiery little heart. And Eden is ready for a performance at any moment. Most songs begin and end with a “Woah” and have a lot of Sidamigna/Amharic jibberish in the middle. She’s just as happy to perform for a crowd as she is her doting little bro. We love them.
And those pics (preview of the photos to come)…
