Adoption Celebration Party!!!



Today we were thrown an Adoption Celebration Party by our family. It was so much fun to all be together to celebrate Sweet M*. coming home. Our family did an AMAZING job, the kids played pin the dot on Ethiopia (like pin the tail on the donkey), they colored Ethiopian flags, people were able to make a note for Shea on the scrapbook table and there was the most beautiful cake! But, the part of the day that meant most to me was sitting in a prayer circle being surrounded by so many prayers and well wishes for safe travels and a smooth transition for M* into our family. I can't tell you how loved that made us feel. Sweet M* has already stolen our hearts and the hearts of those that surround us. It is amazing to watch how many people have been touched by this amazing adoption experience. We are excited (& a little nervous) to be so close to finally meeting our son and we thank everyone who has helped us through this process. We leave in just 4 days... I can't believe we are actually at this point!!!
