Does this look like a Rooney at all to you?
Well, it is!!!
Lori and I wanted to introduce you to someone we met today. His name is Abenezer, and he is about 6 months old. We have decided to make him a big part of our lives, so you may be seeing a lot of him in the future. Our commitment toward this relationship is at least through him turning the age of 18. Sounds serious, huh? Well, we are actually committed up to the day we die, but after 18 the choice will be up to him, as well. So we hope he likes us.
My dear Rooney extended family. I just wanted to let you know as soon as we did that we got the referral for our Ethiopian child this morning and we are still in a bit of a daze. To read more, go to Lori's blog. We are not sure about his name, but we do like the name he was given (Means: "God has always helped us"--or so we hear), so it just may stick.
We'll let you know as things progress.
Ted & Lori
WOW! I was just about to leave a comment to tell you that I'm DYING over here and needed a picture. Then I open your blog and see this most beautiful face!! His skin is so amazing. Absolutely gorgeous!! Congratulations again!
He is STUNNING like you said!
Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful little Abenezer! Your very own Rooney....
Love the meaning of his name too!
Oh my goodness Ted and Lori!!! He is beautiful. Can you believe that he is your baby? How precious are those cheeks and lips. He is amazing! I can not wait to meet him in person...when we are in Ethiopia together (wink-wink). Amy
SQUEAL!!! Yay! Go shopping, girl! He is absolutely beautiful. I can totally see you as a boy's mommy! When does he come home? Do you think the other "children" are going to be jealous? Buddy must learn to behave to be a good example. ;)
He is absolutely beautiful, Ted and Lori. Congratulations again. Here's hoping for a quick court date for all of you who received referrals yesterday. Shelia (Amy's mom)

What a beautiful little babe! And waht a fun story of your referral. Congratulations to you and Ted. He is just awesome.
Lori -- he's gorgeous! I want to pinch his chubby little cheeks. We're finally starting our homestudy...and I feel like we have so far to go before we get our referral. But I'll just live vicariously through you for a while:)!
Yep, I can see why you're hooked. A Mom could get lost in those eyes pretty darn quick.
Leaving now, crying again....
He's a heartbreaker. Look out, Portland girls. What a sweet face, I'm so excited for you. Oh you can give him nicknames. What about Ab to the Nezer, or A-Dawg, or Neezenizzle?
Or hot tamale? Just so cute. I'm so happy for you.
All I can say is WOW.
He is beautiful!! I am so happy for ya'll I could spit!(a little Texas praise)
Can you believe this time next year, you will be getting ready for Santa?!
Congratulations on the best Christmas present ever!
I am so excited for you guys!!! What a gorgeous little bit of God's creation. Can't wait for his first So. Cal. visit. You better let us know when that happens! We still miss you, Lori! Even though your seat is empty at the table, you will forever be wound around our hearts.
He is a doll baby!
Celebrating with you...
