One Year Ago Today

The Ethiopian Federal Court made us a family.

When I look back at pictures from our court trip, our Embassy trip, our first weeks and months home. . . it's hard to recognize the people in the photos.  They look like us, sort of.  But we are all so very different now.

Our boy who barely smiled?

Well, he smiles now.  A lot.

And he laughs.  All the time.

Our boy, who was so skinny he wasn't even on the BMI chart when he first came home, is now 50th percentile for weight and 80-something percentile for height.

We have all been changed in so many wonderful ways.

One thing that hasn't changed?

He still loves to climb trees.
