We had a great time celebrating our big day on Monday with two other YWAM adoptive families -- it is such a huge blessing to have friends close by who are walking this road with us. Especially the kind who are willing to drop everything and invite you over for dessert, or drive across town just to give you a big hug! The other cool thing about these two families is that all of our Ethiopian children were born in the exact same town - how crazy is that? Our children will travel all the way across the world to join our families, but they will still have neighbors who share their birthplace. God is good!

the kids had ice cream

the adults had (home-grown!) pumpkin pound cake

the boys loved the dollhouse elevator

can't wait to have a picture with the WHOLE family...


  1. What a sweet update. It was a fun night and a perfect reason to celebrate. Congratulations again, the Lemanski family is still so genuinely excited for the Ballast family!

  2. What I would give to live near you all! Looks like fun!

  3. Your boys can come over to play with our girl's dollhouse anytime! hee-hee.

    We had such a fun time celebrating with you!
