Welcome Home Aliya Grace

I so want to update my blog for the days that we missed while in Ethiopia, but it will not be tonight:) Tonight we are cuddling and reuniting and turning in early. I do want to share a couple of irristable photos and thank everyone for the prayers for our family. God has worked in marvelous ways and I want to share in detail soon. In the meantime, here are some winning pictures:)
 

The kids all together at long last.


 

I think he likes her:)


 

It has been a LOOONG day. It tuckers a girl right out to travel from Ethiopia and meet her new siblings!

I loved reading your blog. My family and I are also in the process of adopting a girl(s) from Rwanda through Gladney. Just getting ready to submit our dossier to the embassy here in the US. I have seen lots of boys adopted from Rwanda but yours is the first beautiful baby girl! Congratulations!!!! (Ironically Alyia was one of the names were were thinking of choosing too :)
Blessings!!!!
