She is home, she is ours...and here she is!

 

Now I thought I would introduce you the same way we were.  The first picture is one we received in November, when we received our referral.  She was 4 months old...

Which was followed about three months later, after a request for a picture without a hat, by this...

Just to string this out a little while longer (since we did wait a least a month between each set of photos, and 39 months from our initial application until we walked off the plane yesterday), you all will have to wait a little longer too.   I will post some more pictures in a while.

Yes she is a beauty.

 

Here is what we saw when we got to Addis...

These were all our first visit in April.  We have not even downloaded our pictures from this trip...including a trip to meet Messi's birth mom (equally beautiful), grandfather (11 years YOUNGER than me) and extended family.

 

I will post some of those in the future.  Right now she is rocking and clapping to Keller Williams "Kids" album.  She also like's Bob Marley's "B is for Bob" and Ziggy's "Family Time".
