Birthday Baby!

Tuesday November 11Th was our Baby Meseret's first birthday! I thank the Lord that she is here with us on this day. She decided to give her family and birthday surprise by taking her first steps. She dazzles us with her laughter and brightens our home with her presence. The transition into her new life has been incredibly smooth and I attribute this to the excellent care she received at the AWA Transition House. Meseret Joy means a foundation of joy, and she is just that!
