Wow! What a great video! I love how you all have the same reaction when the picture pops up. Such a beautiful, sweet thing to watch - definitely too good for YouTube (I saw in another post you wrote it wasn't YouTube worhty). :)

Congratulations! So happy for you guys!!! I'll be praying you'll be in Ethiopia as soon as possible (before court closures) to bring your boy home!

Benaiah - love it!

Oh Susan! We are SO happy for you! The video is precious. I LOVED everyone's reaction at the moment you first see Beniah (and then again the second time). I can't WAIT for you to go get him.

Love and Blessings,

Hi to all of you. We have been following your progress all along. We're so excited you got your referral! The video of you all seeing his pictures for the first time is so touching. What a great idea. Benaiah will really like that when he's old enough to see it. Blessings, Ryan and Linn (Dan and LJ's friends)
