Since her 6-month photos are just around the corner, I though it was probably time that I shared this tiny beauty with you. Enjoy!

very, very happy
Twenty-Eight months ago, we turned in a little application announcing our dream of adopting a little boy from Ethiopia. It's been ten months since we first saw his faceand over five months since we last held him. But tomorrow, the waiting ends. Just before you wake up tomorrow morning, I'll be squeezing my boy.
