Many friends have been asking when our little girl will be coming home from Ethiopia. Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing when her paperwork will be approved. It is a difficult time as we think of her living in the orphanage. The contrast between her life there, and our life here is painful. Please pray that we will hear good news soon.
In the meantime, the boys are doing great! E. has settled in remarkably well – I find myself marveling at him every day. He is acquiring more language almost daily. Yesterday morning he was sitting on my lap before church. He took my face in his chubby hands and gave me a big kiss. I said, “I love you”, and he said, “I luh loo”. It was so sweet. He repeated it again today when I was tucking him in for his nap. What could be better than that!
W. has two razor-sharp tiny teeth that have poked through his lower gum. He is starting to roll over and sit up and is generally adorable every single day. He gives us lots of smiles and squeals and gets very excited when his brothers and sisters walk in the room.
We have been home seven weeks today and I can say that although our adjustment has been easy, it took me a little while to sort out what life was going to look like with two new children who are 17 months apart. That new life is beginning to sort itself out and I feel better every day. We are finishing out our school year, dinner is making it to the table, laundry is getting done, groceries are in the cupboards, all in all, things are good.
