Well we are home and things are going so well, despite the fact that I am sick. I feel a terrible cold coming on and I just don't have time for this right now!!!

this will be brief.

Nettie is still just doing great she is a happy child and really a poster child for all things adoption. People are just falling in love with her.

She put on a Tinkerbell outfit tonight with yellow shoes and a train hat and pink purse and a scarf she thought she looked grand, and oh ya the sunglasses. she was so cute.

Abby is doing great as a big sister she advocates for Nettie's needs and swears she can understand her when she speaks Amharic so she is translating as well. The took a shower together tonight and Abby washed her with the soap and they both lost their balanced and ended up in a black and white heap on the shower floor giggling like crazy! It was too cute. Then at bed time Abby insisted that Nettie sleep with her so I had two of my girls in my arms and it was so wonderful. Nettie sang some songs to us and then began to pray seriously insisiting we say Amen to everything she said. I really wish I knew what that was.


  1. Awwww! How sweet. I am so glad you have your girl home Kim!

  2. I am so glad that you had Brook with you. I have read everything that you have written on you blog. Hate that you got sick but you will do okay. Nettie sounds as if she is an amazing child, you are truly blessed with all your children.
