After a grueling thirty-four hour trip we made it back home! Our family and friends were at the airport to greet us and one family lovingly took photos and video of the entire welcome home. What a gift! We stayed at the airport and visited for a short while then Ray, and I, and our children went home to just be together and love our new baby. She is the perfect center of attention and had no problems fitting into that spot!
Tonight we had a birthday celebration for our 15-year-old daughter. All the family came and brought food and we enjoyed the togetherness. We missed our children so much and it is good to be reunited with them. But a huge piece of our heart remains in Ethiopia until we can bring Beautiful Etsegenet home so she can be in our next family photo. It won't be long until our hearts sing for joy!
