I was just going through my old emails from my Yahoo email address - looking for an email from a woman in Denmark who had contacted me because our sons were at the same orphanage. (Do you know I emailed with two families from Denmark who had children at Hope for Abandoned Children? Crazy.) Anyway, I never deleted any emails from last spring and summer and I'm so glad I didn't. It is amazing to look back through them. For one, it is fun to read everyone's congratulations after our referral and court date - I mean who wouldn't want to read again about how adorable their son is? :) But, I also read a lot of emails that people (maybe you) sent me wondering about Ethiopian adoption, or our agency, or travel or whatever. For example - Jocelyn - I didn't realize we've been email buds since July! Did you? And, there were so many other names that I recognized of people who were asking about adoption - and are now adopting - some even have their referrals! I just think this whole process is amazing and our online community is amazing. That's all.
And, what's a post without pictures? (Especially two in a row.) So, here is Micah eating spaghetti. It's his new favorite. Is this not hilarious? We obviously thought it was - we took about 45,000 pictures (not all of them are in the slideshow!). Oh - and btw, he did have a bib on, but he now takes his bibs off Hulk-style. He grabs them and makes a tough face and pulls them right off. Then he tries to pull his shirt off too. His new nickname might be David Banner.
