Our First Moments

Helen, the social worker, bringing "Edilu" to us
He's obviously unsure of us & "what big teeth you have"
Here come the tears
We brought cakes for all the kids & staff at Acacia Village & the nannies made the sign for Sol
Happy 1st Birthday Sol!
Haddush, the transition home director, giving "Edilu" one last kiss.
Sitting on Daddy's belly, warming up to us at the guest home

The whole family gathered around the computer to see these pictures. So much joy! (And Ish is now walking around singing, "ARE YOU GOING TO KISS ME?")

He's beautiful. The two of you are glowing. This is great. Nancy and I and the kids plan to come visit you at WP this fall, once we're settled in CT.

I just reread this blog...the gigantic smiles on your faces are amazing, and its emotional to see the reunion! We're so excited for you guys...and we should start up pen pals when you're back and settled into a new routine!

Wow I almost cried looking at that last picture. What a blessing you are giving that little boy. God will bless you and Riley as you have blessed others. Thank you for your testimony.
