I pass this award on to:

Jen- I wouldn't have survived this last adoption without our multiple daily phone calls. Our kids were together in care for a year and still speak of one another constantly. I love that and I love this family.

Lauren- our precious teacher and friend. We miss Lauren and Matt living here, but are thrilled they will be around awhile! :) She has a precious heart.

Jamey- Such a gift of friend, faithful, thoughtful and just waiting for her fingerprint appointment to send her dossier to Ethiopia. Bringing at least 2 kiddos home, I did say at least! :) Oh, and today is her birthday so tomorrow we are headed to a spa for the day! Yes, I am just that kind of friend.

Jess- We go back a ways! She started babysitting the kids when Issy was a wee babe and now she has a wee babe of her own. How can that be? One problem, they moved to Houston----come back, come back.

Katheryn- Some people, ok most, call her Kate. Yet another one that cared for my kiddos, started when Hill was a baby, then all of them. Is there a better compliment to a parent than someone else LOVING your kids?? She now has 2 kids and I'm starting to feel old. She promised to get back to blogging!

Lori- We met early on the adoption process, clicked and have walked through stuff together. Dig her honesty. Maybe this will get a post out of her. Love you sweetpea

You are TOO much! If there is one thing I am it is honest!! Some/many would say too honest!

Love you back babe!

Just read this! Will do after the pumpkin goes to bed (she's been a wee bit cranky today :) Been thinking of you and baby Abey..and all the kids for that matter. I miss my room. :0( It was a comforting place and I usually had a little buddy that didn't wake me up at 4 am. :) We will be back Saturday and Addy and I have plans to come steal a day from you guys. :)

We Are Family said...

This is a great post. I know we don't know each other but clearly we have so much in common :) I would love to hear more about your dreams for Ethiopia. Our family has some big dreams for Africa. I also read someplace in your blog that your husband went to dental school. I am an assistant. Does your dream have anything to do with a dental clinic? I know you are a busy mom but I would love to connect with you.

I loved your answers! Thank you for taking the time to do it. So are you hoping to live in Ethiopia in 6 years or be back for more kiddos? Will you share in a post? We continue to pray for your family!
