Six Hours of Briggs


We got our boy about six hours ago.

He’s amazing.

And he’s huge.

He cried for 90% of our time together this afternoon. Surprisingly, we still enjoyed every minute. We’ll see how we feel about the crying tomorrow.

I gave him a sweet potato puff as a peace offering. He threw it at my face. Today, it was funny, but I told him that if he tries that in about a month, he going to have to sit in time-out.

It was a rough afternoon for the little guy – illustrated by the fact that he fell asleep sitting up on the bed by himself.

And now that he’s sleeping soundly, I kinda want to go wake him up and play with him.

When I think of Ethiopia, I think of color - and lots of it! While I would probably complain loudly if my neighbor decided to paint his house teal or purple or pink, I found the color choices in Ethiopia to be just beautiful!
Shocked and Awed
At 10:30 on Monday morning, I received a casual email from our caseworker at our adoption agency. "We have some medical records we would like you to take a look at - we have a child that we think might be a good match for you and Mark." Ummm. What's that? Did you send this email to the wrong person? My heart started racing. This did not feel casual to me. Mark came home. We ambushed our pediatrician. I'm so sorry. I know that you didn't know that you were our pediatrician, and I know that you haven't had lunch, and, no, we're not on the schedule, but could you take a look at some medical records for us? She said the baby looked healthy. Is th ...
