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.......

Ha, this is sooo funny! I checked your blog ALL day Saturday to see if you were going to post anything about her anniversary! :) I remember practically counting down the seconds until I could get out of work on Friday, April 10, 2009, only to find out your flight was delayed... It was so exciting watching for you, Michael and our beautiful Ethiopian princess to come off the tram thing at the airport!
