Tonight we got to celebrate at the airport with the Cook family! I just love seeing families come home! Nuredin and Edasso are cuties! This homecoming was definitely answered prayer!
Jana did get to see our baby boy! She went back to KVI on Thursday for exactly that purpose and we are SO very thankful! She said that he looked good, just very small. (more like a couple months old instead of 6) We are hoping he has gained some weight, but haven't received those numbers yet. Jana said that he was alert and cried when she laid him back down...all good. He was wearing an outfit we sent. She also said his bottles made the trip to Addis (good) and that our picture album we sent with the Bitners was there as well. Susan (our agency director) is leaving in 3 weeks for Ethiopia. We are planning to send formula and vitamins with her. We should get some good info, pictures, and even a video! She is also going to look over our paperwork so that when we finally get a court date, hopefully everything will be in order. I had such a hard week, worrying about Dawit....whether he got transferred, if the new nannies would know how to care for him...if Jana and Kenny would get to see him (I really had pumped myself up for their update.) It feels so good to hear something. At our adoption fellowship at Highview this week, we talked about waiting well. I am not very good at that. Waiting stinks everyday...some days are harder than others. But I take comfort in knowing that God knows every little part of Dawit. HE knows his needs better than anyone. HE sent doctors over when Dawit needed doctors, he sent friends with formula, and HE will continue to look over our sweet boy.
