We are home!


We finally made it home yesterday (Sunday). We missed our flight in Washington DC and could not get another flight until yesterday morning. We spent most of the day in airports waiting for delays. By the time we arrived home, everyone was exhausted. It turned out well though. We are home safe and adjusting well.
The above pictures were taken in Ethiopia. The top one was taken at the farewell ceremony at the orphanage (Care Center). The farewell ceremony was last Wednesday and when I took full custody of JM. The bottom one was taken shortly after I met JM the first day I was in Ethiopia. He was a little shell shocked but attached quickly.
Bonding is continuing to go well. JM looks for me for comfort and likes to make sure I am watching him. He has normal toddler needs for independence while still making sure I am nearby. The reports I received on his personality were correct. He loves to smile, laugh and babble. He appears to be on target developmentally and things are going well. I would love to write more but I am exhausted. JM is finally asleep and I think I will head to bed myself.
