Ethiopian Adoption-1 Year Ago Today!

Behind the well worn gates, waits our daughter




The gate opens and our eyes behold....








And look who they bring us! Sweet tiny 9 month old Mihret.




A Papa's heart expands immensely, a year ago today.



















Thank YOU God for the perfect gift...from your heart to ours.

Happy Anniversary?! Adoption birthday? Is there a cool name for it or should you make up your own? Either way, it is a beautiful reason to rejoice.

This is SO beautiful Kimmie, so so so beautiful! :) I cannot imagine the emotions you would have been feeling that day. How interesting to see some glimpses of the orphanage also - all that washing on the lines... those children..... my heart aches.

Praise God for this sweet girl, she is simply beautiful. :) xo

Our journey said...

Remembering along with you what a special day that was. I can't believe a year has passed since we met our daughters. God's faithfulness throughout the journey to them and then in this past year has been awe inspiring.

Wow, I can't believe it's been a year already! She's grown so much, I'm afraid your babe in arms days are almost over. :( :) She's a real little beauty.
