Happy 1st birthday little E! We feel so privileged to be able to have spent almost 6 hours over two days with you last week! You were very unsure of us at first, but you were quick to warm up to us! You have the sweetest smile, adorable laugh, and a spunky personality! We can't wait to hear when we can return and really start to get to know you! In the meantime, we are so impressed by the love and care you are receiving at the care center. The nannies love you and you love the nannies! This mommy and daddy are now learning some serious patience! So glad the God is in control of all!


  1. My thoughts are with your family in this tough time when you are waiting patiently to bring baby E home. I can't begin to imagine how hard that would be - half of your heart is here with Trek and the other half in Ethiopia with baby E. I sure hope these couple of months go quickly - in comparison to when you have baby E in your arms forever they seem like they went quickly. Love to your family!

  2. Oh, I remember very clearly leaving our heart in ET when we met our children for the first time. The time tested my patience and love and stretched me in so many ways! I hope so much that it goes much faster for you than it did for us!!! Did you pass court?!!

  3. Angela, we are waiting on a new document pertaining to relinquishment that the court is requesting by 3/15...then we should pass, crossing our fingers!
