After three days, we are recuperating well. We flew home with Julie and I kept reminding myself that she was there for a month! We managed to stay healthy and never got sick. Maybe just a little...when we were all crammed in a bus for the hour long trek to the embassy appointment while smelling the diesel from the many vehicles on the road! I can't believe we are back and the long wait is over.
We took lots of pics, but many of which are of the children, which we can't post. Here are a few from the hotel and at HH...
Here is Lauren with her new baby brother, Elias Bereket "Eli"
This is our first meeting with Elias. He looks a little uncertain...
Oh, you've seen these guys before...they are as important to some of these little guys as the special moms are.
Eli with Almaz. She is one incredible woman! I can't imagine doing all that she does at HH and for the families.
We brought some punching balloons for the kids. They LOVED them!
Lauren with Eli in the hotel. This is the toy we sent in his care package back in April!
This is Danny the "guide". Lauren wanted to bring him home too.
Great to be with our little man finally!
