father's day in ethiopia

not sure if this will work...
but i am giving it a shot.

first of all,
happy father's day to my dad, and steve's dad :)

we love it here...
the people, the streets, the sounds, the smells...
it is home.

this morning we got up and went to church,
then had the priveledge of taking photos for our new friend ashlie, as she met her son for the first time...
it was such a gift to us.
i will remember it always.

we are getting ready to go down and meet clarah's birth mother...
we didn't think that they would have enough time to get her here, but they did, and i am so looking foward to being able to have this meeting, and share it with clarah later...
another gift.

still a bit surreal, that we are here, and actually get to leave with our daughter...
but the excitement is mounting.
22 hours and counting. :)
