Welcome Home!

We had the awesome privilege of welcoming our close friends and their new baby girl home from Ethiopia a couple of weeks ago.  It's been so neat seeing God write her journey to their family and so fun to finally see her in her mommy's arms and to meet her big brothers.  Here's just a few of the photos I took.

Here they come!

My girls were so crazy about Alaysia.  You could tell Ava's brain was going a million miles a minute processing and absorbing it all . . .and she was obsessed with her hair. : )  I loved that Kate's prayer that night was "thank you that we could see baby Alaysia."

How cute is she?!?!

A family of five!  

So thankful for God's faithfulness this far in their journey and trusting He'll continue to be in the years ahead.
