She is our daughter. While in Ethiopia, the judge made it official and that leaves the last step of finalization by the U.S. Embassy. We want to be there with her. We want her here at home. The wait becomes more difficult all the time, but we hope for a quick embassy appointment so we can bring her home. Our time in Ethiopia could not have been more humbling and beautiful...the moments spent with her were so precious but leaving was harder than we imagined. She is such a happy, curious, energetic little girl!

Once upon a time in a land far, far away there was a beautiful, little African princess without a home. The little princess would lie in her crib and dream of a day when she would meet a family. Although her caretakers were very kind and loving, she longed for a family of her own. She would spend her days imagining what life would be like with a mom, a dad and two brothers.
On the other side of the world, there was a family that felt like they wouldn’t be complete without a little princess. They thought, dreamed and imagined for years and finally decided that the time was right to start their search for their own princess. After learning about many different countries and cultures, they realized that the little princess in Africa was the perfect fit for their family.
The mom and the dad traveled to the far away land and met the baby princess. They couldn’t wait to bring her home to her two brothers that were anxiously awaiting her arrival!
When they returned home, there were plenty of adjustments (Wow! The mom and dad had been out of the baby stage for a while!) From snakes, bugs and dirt to dolls, dresses and pink, it didn’t take long before the family could not imagine life without her. Their family was complete and they lived happily ever after.
