I received a few emails from families who have traveled recently and who met our daughter waiting in Ethiopia. We just can't wait to meet her!!!
"my daughters and I have fallen madly in love with your daughter. We are in Addis and have spent a lot of time at ________ -- and she stole our hearts right away"
"She is such a sweetie! She followed me around wherever I went helping me and always had her arm around me! She is shy and quiet and I could tell she was so hungry for the love of a Mom. You are so blessed to be adding her to your family....love your little girl! "
" they spent lots of time with her. They LOVED her!! We love her name too"
"I got to spend a bunch of time with _____________. It is my pleasure to inform you that she is a fantastically sweet child and you are very lucky to have her joining your family. If I could, I'd like to tell you a quick story about __________. It's actually one of my favorite memories of our entire trip. Early one morning at _______ I was sitting just outside the door of a classroom we were working on, stirring a bucket of paint. Nobody else was around. I heard something and looked up and across the courtyard. ___________had come around the corner from the soccer court and was yelling someones name. She stopped when she saw me, smiled, ran across the courtyard, and gave me a giant hug. She really is one of the sweetest children I've ever met."
