I've said this before, but it bears repeating: one of the best surprises of this adoption process has been the amazing people we have met along the way. I love knowing that Z will grow up with many other boys and girls who will share his experience of being an Ethiopian adoptee, and we certainly benefit from connecting with other adoptive parents.
One of these precious families just recently returned home from their first trip, where they attended a court hearing and were officially named as the PARENTS of an absolutely gorgeous little girl. We are so thrilled for them! Last night we brought dinner over to their house and shared stories as our children played together. There are 4 boys between our two families -- can't wait to see a girl in the mix soon!
Z and C are the same age and up to all the same tricks!
Don't mind Nathan's tiny chair...
And as if I didn't love her enough already, this morning Melissa's blog post absolutely blew me away. Click here to read a well-written, well-thought-out, and just plain awesome post that summarizes her new-found perspective on Ethiopian adoption. It makes me want to poke the person next to me and say, "Hey, I know her!" So thankful God has given us such great companions on this road.
