What an amazing and touching photo of the family hug. I'm all teary just looking at it, and I don't even know you! I've been following along the past couple of weeks after I found your blog (we are just getting started with our Ethiopia adoption). Thank you so much for sharing your adventure. Congratulations!

We are so excited for you guys! Mikey is just sitting here wanting me to put baby zoe back up on the screen. She is beautiful, and she looks bigger than I envisioned. Can't wait to read about your meeting her and more importantly, to meet her. Gotta stop writing now, so Mikey will stop saying "Baby Zoe gen mommy". Love, all of us at the Anderson house
