final slideshows


Here are the final two slideshows!  Kristin is so amazing and has such a gift.  We were so blessed to have her with us each step of the way.  

We all delight in Abe.  He is such a bright light in our family!  We also all miss Ethiopia.  As we watched the final two slideshows, the kids all said how much they want to go back- we totally agree.  A huge hole in our hearts can only be filled with the people of Ethiopia.  Lord willing, He will allow us to return sooner than later. 

Enjoy!  To God be the Glory!

I LOVE THAT .. The Power of the Lord !!!!

Emily,

I wish I could find words to adequately express the pure joy it has been to follow your journey to Ethiopia and to Abe. The photos are incredible and bring me to tears each time I view them. I found your blog via mutual friends in TN. As a sister in Christ, a Texan, and a mother to both birth & adoptive children, I felt an instant connection the first time I visited Soli Deo Gloria. I will be following along as I cannot get enough of that precious baby Abe (nor the rest of your beautiful family). You are doing an incredible job capturing the blessing of adoption and the spirit of Ethiopia in your postings. I can only imagine how God will use His story for your family to prick the hearts of others to follow His command to care for the orphans of the world. Thank you!

Love & Blessings,
Kim

Best. Documented. Trip. Ever. Thank you so much for sharing all this with us. It's an incredible thing to see. Abe is absolutely beautiful.

Ellen said...

The homecoming one won't work! Did it work for other people? Maybe it's my sytem acting up.
I will never tire of those slideshows. I just wish you could put the beautiful faces of the orphans on there. The pictures of ya'll with A's mom just about made me cry.
She couldn't have found a better family to raise Abe.

And remember, if you ever need someone to hold and rock him for a few hours, I'm just a phone call away! :)

What are you doing first thing this morning? Me, I'm crying my eyeballs out! What an extraordinary journey... one that's only just beginning. The joy and love that this little boy has entered into is overwhelming. What amazing friends and family you have. You guys are such a beautiful, beautiful family, I'm thinking we have to move next door just to be near you year-round. Special, special, special. Thank you for sharing such an intimate experience. It's been a complete joy to watch and has us just itching to get back to Ethiopia too. Love you!

Em...That was awesome. Thanks for "bringing us along on the trip". Being at the airport and seeing your whole travel troop (minus Kelley:( ) was so wonderful! Your travel weariness was so overpowered by your shear JOY at finally bringing Abe home forever!! Love you all! You might find me at your back door any time to get another Abe fix!

Jess said...

Nothing makes me cry like seeing your daughter with her tearful face holding Abe for the first time!

I also cried seeing Dea and Darius with the sign welcoming Abe!

Weeping with joy for your family who are complete strangers to me.

Literally stumbled upon your blog last year ... was deeply moved, as the Lord has been speaking to me about adoption for many years. Kept thinking you looked familiar, and realized it was from your EoA story. Am building my business in hopes that it will lead to a similar story for my family of 5. Thanks for sharing your journey. Isn't the body of Christ beautiful/

What a beautiful family you have. My favorite video was Day 4 - Gotcha Day. I had tears in my eyes throughout the video. The Might to Save song is wonderful too. Thanks for sharing your faith as well as your family.

Dave and Rae said...

What an amazing video!

As a fellow adoptive parent, I thought to write and tell you about the new guest home in Ethiopia specifically for adoptive parents and volunteer groups for the benefit of orphans in Ethiopia. Now that it is up and running, we would love to share the vision with other adoptive parents. You can see more at http://www.ethiopiaguesthome.com.

If you would like to post a link, send me an email at dave@ethiopiaguesthome.com and I’ll forward you the information.

Blessings,

What an incredible adventure you have endevored. Thank you for sharing your memories of your time with us to see. What a lucky little boy to be a part of such a loving family. You have touched so many lives that you will never even relize the impact of what you did for the people of Ethiopia. May god bless you and your family.

Keisha Suzanne said...

I was given your blog through the grape vine, and oh so glad!

We serve a MIGHTY God and I'm touched to see how God is using your family and moving in your lives and those around you.
Praise to HIM forever amen!

May you continue to have strength an and hope and grace as you adjust to a 'new' life with another bundle of joy in your care for ever and ever. This little guy was created for this exact time and season and for your family, and God was behind it all... wow!!

Congrats from another sister in the Lord.
