They're beautiful, Erin, just beautiful.


They are such beautiful boys and I know how anxious you must be to get them home! I can't wait to read more about your adventure! (My friend has her courtdate 3/5 and will be traveling soon after that -- living vicariously through you guys has been heartwrenching and exciting!)


They are absolutely beautiful and perfect, but the sadness on their faces breaks my heart. I am so glad that they have you coming for them, to bring them love and happiness and help them smile again.

It seems that all referral pictures are that sad, but part of it is that smiling for a camera is a learned response, and this may be the first picture they've ever posed for.

Try to get someone traveling before you to take the stuff for you since I think it will get there faster than sending it in through WHFC. Also, might I suggest that you make the toys and photo albums matching (ie same patern, but put possibly different color). I think it helps reinforce that they are going to the same place.


They are so beautiful.
I'm so glad you shared the picture, though I know precisely what you mean about protecting them (and particularly protecting the referral picture and the vulnerability it reveals). I'm still torn on sharing pictures, and sharing that one particularly (but I also know how much it meant to me while I was in the process!)


Gorgeous boys, thanks for posting the pics...the photos are a pleasure...they will not be looking lost for long. Keep Habtamu in orange it suit him but no more pink for Lire. Leisa xx


Wow, I slacked off on my blog reading for a bit and look what I missed!!! Congratulations! Your sons are beautiful!


I'm so excited for you!! They are perfect.

It is nearly impossible to wait. This was the hardest part for me. Knowing Dawit only through photos, but worrying and anticipating...ugh...you know.

Best wishes to you! Let me know if I can answer any questions about travel or whatever else you think about.



Oh, Erin, they are beautiful!! I love Habtamu's protective arm around little Lire's shoulder.

Thank you for showing us their pictures, and congratulations again.


What wonderful news for both you and B. Your boys are simply divine and I cannot wait to hear more about them when you journey to bring them home.
