We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life.But those who make their journey home across time & miles,growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them,are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands.

Super Quick Update

Okay Malakai is waking up so here goes...Malakai started to sit up all by himself yesterday and is already a pro at it. He has also started rice cereal and tired squash with little success. He is still having a hard time with the sleep thing and naps are completely unpredictable if they even happen. He has gotten much better with his eye-hand coordination is grabing for toys much more now. He has even started to grow a little patch of hair on the left side of his head. It cracks me up since all the other hair is still fuzz but he has one long curl lol! If I have time I'll try to post some pictures of these events later.

I can't believe that it has been a month already since we met our babies. We are slowly finding our groove. Going grocery shopping is a bit of a challenge.
I'll be praying for nap times.

Just hang in there girl, we're thinking of you and praying for you! If you need to vent you know you can always call!

I am still "stalking your blog" from Seattle. It is a nice distraction for me. You have a beautiful family. It is fun to read about Malakai growing, learning and udjusting.

It's good to hear that he's doing so well. I will be praying that the sleeping will get better. love you guys.

How cool that he's sitting up! =) Big boy! Did you ever read Baby Wise? I am thinking now that that system worked really good for Juliana, and I don't think it's too late to implement it for Malakai if you thought it was a good idea. I hope there's some sleepy days ahead of you! =)

Sorry to bother you. I am a French journalist for a women's magazine and I would like to write some info (not very long) about the difficulties about adopting in Africa. Would you have time to answer two or three questions (can be by email). Many Thanks, Celine, celine.chaudeau@mondadori.fr

I found your blog when searching for Ethiopian adoption blogs as my husband and I are currently looking into it.

I'm sure you're busy with your family, but I'd love any information you have on the process. Feel free to visit my blog at www.infertilityishard.wordpress.com

Also, feel free to email me at katrina470@hotmail.com

I know there is a lot of information out there, but I think the best info would come from people like yourself who have been through the process firsthand. :-D
