Trip of a Lifetime

We're back!  It's the middle of the night and my jetlagged self is wide-awake.  Since our return almost a week ago, I've been going to bed around 6 or 7pm and waking around 4am.  My pregnant body hasn't had the will to fight the jetlag, so the off-based schedule persists.  It's taken me all of this week to readjust after our trip and process all that happened.  Our time in Paris was a wonderful treat.  Our time in Ethiopia was amazing.  Our son was to die for.  The most precious, snuggly, sweet little boy I've ever had the privilege of holding.

We met some other amazing adoptive families, ate a traditional Ethiopian dinner, went to market, soaked up as much of the countryside as we could on our way to various restaurants, passed court, and cherished every moment we could with our little Lincoln Ryan Tesfa.

They tell us that it will be about 2-3 months until everything is processed with US Immigration Services, and then we'll get to go back and pick him up.  We're praying this is so!  Until then, we continue to pray blessings over this sweet boy, and praise God for bringing him in to our lives. 


  1. Miss you guys. I think about everyone often. The days are dragging by for me. I miss my little girl!

  2. Me too, Shannon! I pray for all of you, and am hoping for a call soon for each of us. Keep hanging in there!!
