What could be better than an Ethiopian welcome, FOVC style?

Yesterday was Little Boy B's birthday. He turned four years old. We prayed for him and missed him!

It's crazy....we have thought about him so much since early September. I wonder if he even knows yet that we exist, that we're coming for him?

I made a little story book for him--photo of a jet, photo of Mommy and Daddy, photo of him waving, told him we would be in Ethiopia together for a few days, another photo of a jet, photos of his sisters, and Daddy playing, and Mommy cuddling, and our doggy and our park, another photo of him, and one of our current family all together. I decorated the whole thing with looked sweet. Sweet enough to make Big Sis Allison cry a little!

A family traveled Saturday morning with Little Boy B.'s book. The mom promised to read it to him. So, any day now, he will know we are here, and he will begin to understand we are coming.

I am awestruck at the way God makes families.

That is a great idea! Bereket will be very blessed to be a part of your family and I pray your family will be blessed by him. I will keep him in my prayers that he will grow to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ!
