Yesterday we returned HOME.
Our little one slept from 10pm to 8:30am.
Now we just have to keep the other 5 kids from smothering her.
So thankful to finally be together.
In country, we were able to go to our children's village and meet with extended family members. Amazing! We got to see the church where our kids were baptized and the river that the twins brought their animals to for water. We got to hear the story of how their great-aunt was so instrumental in saving our little one's life. What a wonderful woman!
Oh, and we didn't take Li'l B to the guest house with us until the last day in-country. This was the perfect decision for us. I visited her every day, bringing a toy or two to play with and bond. We finally brought her to the guest house the day we were leaving, and she warmed up in about 10 minutes. Incredible, really. This gave us a chance to see much more of Ethiopia and really enjoy the experience.
She was a super traveler. My friend Laura is in this shot, too.
Home with her siblings.....
