Mixed Bag

This is an exciting week for our AWAA family. There are 5 families who are meeting their children in Ethiopia! We're enjoying the blog updates and videos as we live vicariously through them. Two of the families are in our blog list down on the right side of the screen, the Carpenters and the Davids.

Another family received a referral last week for a baby girl and are over the moon, of course!

Last night, we met two other couples from our Ethiopian program for dinner at our local Ethiopian restaurant. We had such a great time! I hope to do that again soon!

Annika visited the orthopedist yesterday, and we got the bad news that her bones have moved. We're going back next week to see if they have moved more. Because she is only 4, we can leave them as they are and *eventually*, they *should* straighten out as she grows. If the bones move more, we'll have to consider surgery to put pins in so that her arm will not lose its usability. UGH!
