Eyasu- We have him!!!!

Wow. Wow. Wow. What an unbelievable day so far. It is 5:00pm here in Ethiopia. We woke up this morning very early and had to wait until 9 to go get Eyasu. We have a dear driver, Yostaye, who drove us to the care center. Once the gate opened, a precious little boy came running...really he came running up to Moody!! It was priceless!! We spent some sweet time at the care center, saying goodbye to his friends and the care givers. The rest of the day we have spent just being together at the Bejoe guest house. It is beautiful here, so we spent most of the day out on the lawn, playing ball, reading books. Our dear friend Dereje came to visit as did the Funderburk. He is a dream. A smile that lights up a room. Smart as a whip!! Busy busy busy..a perfect fit for Team Alexander. Praise God for a wonderful first day!
btw, thanks for the prayers. I am feeling a lot better :-)

Well, we are rejoicing here at the Alexander casa in Arlington. Eyasu, we cannot wait for you to come home with your Mommy & Daddy. Abe says he is so excited and he is getting LOTS of good sleep so he can play hard with you! Praise the Lord for His goodness and faithfulness to His children.

Love,
Nanny, Bunty, Hill, Wick, Avery & Isabelle

He is PRECIOUS!!!

I just found out we have a mutual friend - Carrie Pillsbury told me yesterday in sunday school that her friends were going that day to ET, and I said wait, do they have a blog? And then she told me that your mom is Candy, and Candy spoke at our retreat several years ago and I absolutely loved her. Small small world!!
