Taking requests....

We....leave.....in.....5.....days.

YIPPEE!!!!!!

Any of you that have referrals and want us to take some pictures for you and give your children some love from you, just let us know. We would be honored to do that for you. Just give us their names, ages, and location. You can email us using our link on this blog.

Oh, yeah, and Kristy, I won't forget our super top secret mission. :)

We just got this picture today:



Kume has seen our family picture (that is what she is holding in her hand) and she is still smiling. A very good thing.




Yes, they don't always smile. Thanks to Lori Rooney for giving us a shot of reality. Hope my lap is big enough!




I love his hair!

Oh, these pics are just great! ... even the crying one. :) You know me! ... I'm always eager for pics! So even though Becca said she'd take a few .... if you happen to see my sweet babe ... feel free to take more for me!!! :) I think you know her info, if not, just zip me a fast email. Cannot wait to see pics of ALL of your children together in Ethiopia! Blessings~ Shelly

I love his hair too! How precious! I can't wait to hear your travel stories and see even more photos. I don't think Samuel will be at the Gladney Center when you go, but if you see a sweet little 6 year old boy named Samuel, tell him we're on our way and we'd love to get a photo! Best wishes and enjoy every minute of this! We will all be thinking of you and anxiously awaiting to hear the details...

Ted and Lori said...

We felt so bad that they were crying the bulk of the time we were there visiting, so I'm happy to see you guys are okay with those pictures :) It really was remarkable how when she started crying, he chimed in within a couple of seconds. Twins for sure. And really: they are gorgeous. It was so fun to visit with them in person! I'm adding your blog now to our sidebar so I can keep up easily with your trip. So excited for you guys.
