Finger-eatin' good!

I am tired of looking at that ugly picture of me and Ted in last night's post. So here's this pretty thing to cover it up.
Every time I've woken up at night since Monday, I have a hard time getting back to sleep because I remember all over again that this is our baby. Unbelievable.

I'm not sure if I said it yet, but I am so stinkin happy for you guys that I can barely stand it. And we've never even met!

Praise God for answered prayer and for joyful justice in this world. We're celebrating with you and counting down the days until your family is united.

He really is stunningly attractive. (coming from a mom with stunningly attractive children...hehe) I can't wait till he starts to show parts of your personalities. This kid is going to be such a hoot I just know it!

Oh my goodness, my kids and I CANNOT take our eyes off of Abe! I was scrolling through the pictues last night and my kids just fell in love......(For the record, I was already in love...) :-)
Blessings,

Hey Rooneys- he is the cutest cutie! Please have safe travels. Take lots of pictures and record one of those videos when you first meet him so you can post it and we can bawl our eyes out watching it. You two are so courageous and so devoted to Abe- he will certainly feel how lucky he is to have you as parents. I can barely make it through this delay in waiting for our 171-H, let alone what you have gone through to get your boy! Hugs!

God's family is so huge, and He has heard the cry of our hearts. God bless you and your precious son.See you all in heaven some day.My daughter and her husband adopted from E. and she heard about you and asked many people to pray.We did. From Gigi in Tx.

Lori, We have been traveling back to Macedonia & getting our computer-internet service restarted, so haven't been able to check your blog until today. WOW!!! We are so excited for you all (actually not just a Texas slang for you -- BUT the plural form of you-- meaning more than 2). Now it is officially "you all" and we are so happy.

Looking forward to seeing pictures from Addis with little Abe.
