our children, Hailegiorgis 12 and Bethlehem 7. Haile
(pronounced "Hi-lay") and Bete ("Beh-Tee") were officially our children June 12th and we are hoping that in 4-6 weeks we will return to Ethiopia to pick them up and bring them home!
Here is when we met the kids for the first time! They hugged us right away and the FIRST day when we left, they called us "Dad & Mom"!!
|Love Adam's face in this one!!! Precious!|
HAILE MEET'S NOAH
MEETING BETE-SHE WASN'T TOO SURE AT FIRST, BUT OVER THE THREE DAYS, SHE WARMED UP QUICKLY!
|BROTHERS RIGHT FROM THE START!!!|
|EVERYWHERE THEY WENT THEY HELD HANDS-TOO CUTE!|
|SHOWING ME HER ROOM-THE TOP BUNK IS BETE'S BED|
WE GAVE THE KIDS PICTURE ALBUMS WHILE WE WERE THERE OF OF OUR FAMILY AND OUR HOUSE-THEY LOVED LOOKING AT THEM-
