We have a new family member!

My sister and her family got their referral this week for a child in Ethiopia. She is 6 years old and was only dropped off at the orphanage this week. Older children are typically harder to place but this is the age they wanted and they are thrilled!

We celebrated as a family today by wearing our Africa shirts Marybeth and Greta have been making. There is a heart sewn in to the area in Africa where Ethiopia is. We plan to wear them to the airport as we all welcome her home. You can't see the picture very well but the entire family, young and old are wearing their shirts. We're a large, loud and FUN family!

If you would like to support their adoption by purchasing a shirt,they are $25.00 You can specify what you'd like. If you want to read about their adoption journey, check out Our Ethiopia Journeys under blogs I follow on the right sidebar.
