Day Three.

It feels like we have been here a long time and are anxious to get home with our baby! Today, Emily, went to the market for a couple hours with the other families while Bryson stayed back at the hotel and hung out with Evyn. Emily did some pretty sweet bargaining and came back with an awesome treasure.

All in all today was pretty uneventful! Just bonding with our sweet girl and hanging out at the hotel. Sadly, adopting parents aren’t allowed to venture out with our babies because of some government “regulations” so we are pretty much stuck at the hotel. We keep from going stir crazy by hanging out with the other amazing families who are here adopting their little ones. It has really been awesome to get to each of the families and experience this adoption journey with them.

**Back home the Passion team begins loading in Passion2010 Conference today! It feels strange being on the other side of the world while my team is working so hard back in ATL! I know they will do a great job! Praying for you guys!!

Here are some pictures of our past 24 hours with our sweet girl in Addis and a bonus picture of Gotcha Day…

  8. Bryson and Emily,

    We were in small town Georiga over the holidays with no internet access. Last night when we got home I turned on the computer as fast as I could just so I could see pictures of baby Evyn and see how y’all were doing. Aaron and I are thrilled that you have made it to this point in your adoption journey and are continuing to pray for you as you make your way home soon.
