We can sum up the trip in this way: God is at work! He truly sets the lonely in families. It's not easy.... it's typically messy.... but His ways are so much higher than ours. We are truly so in love with this sweet boy and we can't wait to get him home. WE LOVE ETHIOPIA!!! TRULY! The people of Ethiopia are beautiful... so loving, so courteous, and so warm. The caregivers at Hannah's Hope at AMAZING. It truly gives us a lot of peace knowing that little A is being taken care of!
Please continue to pray for this sweet boy, for a quick return trip, and for our health and safety during these upcoming weeks. We'll keep you posted as we hear about embassy dates!
Here's some more photos for you to enjoy!
PS - My hubby just might be working up a new song in the living room right now! :) Can't wait to share it with you!
DAY TWO -
DAY THREE -
look at those sweet little legs!!!!
So humbling to see how hard these people worked ALL DAY LONG. They were working right across the way from Hannah's Hope.... working so hard when we got there in the morning and still working that hard when we left for the day.
This sweet boy playing with his daddy... oh, melt my heart!
As we are in our comfortable home tonight, a sweet friend reminded us of the importance of praying for Ethiopia! I just can't wrap my head around the lives of some of the people we came in contact with... what they worry about each day, the burden they carry with them.... we must continue to pray!
Up next: traditional Ethiopian dinner... be prepared for some crazy dancing! Fellow first trip AGCIers - we have so much footage of your crazy dancing! haha!
