big love.

November 18, 2011
We received a phone call that forever changed our lives...
{and his}

We saw his picture for the first time.
Our hearts overflowed with love
and indescribable joy. 

One year later, on November 18, we celebrated.
We danced and ate cookies 
(complete with Ethiopian flags).

We held hands as a family
and thanked God for His faithfulness
and for this little guy, 
who is filled with such deep, deep joy.

(this mama did all she could to hold back the tears).

I cannot imagine our family any other way.

One year.
what a difference.
what a blessing.
