Another laid back day in Ethiopia. Evyn’s personality is coming out more and more with each day and bringing us so much JOY! We are praising God that she is responding and attaching to us so well. Thank you for praying with + for us! She seems to recognize our voices, laughs and smiles at us, and even started babbling today (and apparently has a lot to say!). She really seems like she is opening up and trusting us. This is a huge answer to prayer. Evyn is also starting to show us some of her tricks like rolling over from front to back and back to front (she was holding out on us the first few days!) She also started saying “dada” today…though we are pretty sure she doesn’t connect the word with who Bryson is, we will celebrate it none-the-less! She truly does have a sweet spirit and is simply adorable. We are in love with her fat cheeks and beautiful eyes!
Today when she woke up from her nap, she was so happy to see us waiting for her…
Today, our final paperwork from the Embassy was issued to us…it’s official! “This adoption is final. No givebacks” as they told us at the Embassy! Seriously, they said that to us!
Lastly, our awesome group families celebrated at a cultural Ethiopian restaurant. Though I’m not a fan of the taste of the food, I love how beautiful it looks when it comes to the table. So colorful!
All in all, just another day in paradise with our precious new addition!
***If you would like to come see us at the airport, we will be arriving from DC to ATL on January 1 around 2:30pm.
