Congratulations! You dont know me but I follow your blog because of my brother, David McDurham. I love the picture of Ella kissing Abe. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and seeing all of your children. Seth Eyasu has no idea what a wonderful family he is coming to and you guys dont know yet what wonderful things he will bring to your family. Enjoy the moment. Be safe when you travel and keep on keeping us posted.
