We did it !!!

Timothy's family found him!!!!!!!!!
One more sweet orphan will be an orphan NO MORE!!!
He will know the love of a family, the tenderness of a mommy, and the joy of being a daddy's boy :):) 
Timothy is going home to Mel DelLanos and her family. Mel and I went to high school together then lost touch and recently she "friended" me on face book. Right at the time I was advocating for Timothy. Coincidence? NO. GOD-INCIDENCE ;)
She fell in love with him and prayed and prayed. They have never adopted before, let alone a child with a special need. Finally GOD gave them the courage to put their fears aside. This isn't about them after all, it is GOD's plan for this little child ! Oh how they will be rewarded !!

One year anniversary ! (and what the heck is w/ blogger ?)

The very last time we stood outside the famous gates :) We loved our time in Ethiopia, the people the sights and sounds were awesome.

Baby girl with  favorite special mother. Watching the tender goodbye, was heartbreaking :( I could see how much see loved my baby girl, and I ached for her having to let her go. The love they show the children is just so unselfish and amazing.

~Ok. this is so freakin maddening!  Blogger changed their format and I cant get my pictures to move or let me add text in between :(  what the heck???
~anywhoo, the next picture was baby girl seeing the doctor at Hannahs Hope before we left, if you remember she came home with that awful rattling. Doctor was super nice.

~Next picture was saying goodbye to our favorite guy at agci :) he loved baby girl and would hold her every chance he got.
~Almaz who is such an amazing lady !
~Meeting her siblings for the first time ! Yup, it was love at first site for all of them :)

~hmm, I had pictures of my son and hubby but they are gone. frustrating....

So happy to see so many families going back to Ethiopia again for another amazing child!!!! I wonder what GOD has planned for our family.........hmmmmmm.......
