New Orleans and FOREVER FAMILIES

We had the awesome opportunity to gather with dear Ethiopian adoptive families in NOLA last week-end. What a sweet time! It's so fun to see how much our kids have changed since they came home -- and to watch them play and interact together. And New Orleans is such a perfect place to meet...we all parked our cars, stayed at the same hotel, and took to the streets. There was something for everyone to do!!


This wasn't intentional, but here we have Micah with all ladies. All the mommies are already talking arranged-marriages amongst each other-- heh heh!!



Micah David and Micah Yoseph.


Jane Grace and Micah. We took Jane Grace a care-package when we traveled to Ethiopia (her family picked her up several months later).


Bread Pudding...a highlight for me!! Micah enjoyed a few bites as well, and promptly pitched a crying-screaming-manic fit when mommy told him last bite. It was so embarrassing--we were in a jam-packed restaurant the size of a large kitchen--so we had quite an audience. The sweet ladies behind the counter brought him a to-go box full of bread pudding, thinking he'd be happy to have a carry-out bag. But, oh no, it was either shovel it down his throat or scream. Needless to say, we went back to the hotel for a nap.

Sounds like a great trip! You can't really blame Micah for pitching a fit over bread pudding!

Looks like it was really fun. Wish we could have been there.
