I was going through Micah's baby clothes, picking out what will be size/season appropriate for Judah, when I found this 6 mo-onesie with Mickey Mouse...well...Micah just absolutely had to wear it. Can you believe I actually got it over his head!!
Judah's care package...which is probably still in-transit to China. It included a rattle, snuggly, photo album, disposable camera (that will hopefully be returned to us with pics of Judah, taken by the nannies), a letter to Judah, and some sweets for the nannies & Ann at Red Thread.
AWAA's Africa Reunion was this weekend in Nashville! We had a great time connecting with familiar & new families! I'd post more pics, but my camera is junk...and, so are the pics. Boo!! The highlight of the weekend was discovering that...WE'RE NORMAL!! Meaning Micah's stubborn, persistent, bossy, presumptuous, sometimes mean, personality is not a result of my bad-parenting. 98% of the ET adoptive families have our same struggles! The reality is, our Ethiopian children are survivors...they're fighters (not meaning violent, but strong-willed)...it's just in their DNA! And I thank God for that! May he use Micah's determination to His glory!
The AWAA reunion families went to church on Sat night -- Micah & I sat outside during worship because he wasn't too cool with going to an unknown nursery. As we were walking around, I saw this stone. Micah immediately walked over, place his hand on it, and began praying aloud. I know he was praying because he said amen several times. Not sure what he was praying for...maybe thanking God, because inscribed on the stone was this:
In our brokenness
The good hand of our God is
Rebuilding, Redeeming, Restoring
Very appropriate for our family.
