Single moms and awesome Ethio Kids dinner!

Tonight, we went to Daphne's house. She and Ben, Melissa and Gizatu, Andrew and I, and Vanessa (who is just starting the adoption process) had a great time together. I'm so glad that we have each other and that our children will grow up together. Andrew watched and listened to the "big boys" and started imitating them while they played. Ben and Gizatu play so well together--it's fun to hear them and watch them. The moms got a chance to catch up with each other and even to eat dinner! Melissa made yummy lasagna, and the rest of us pitched in with a dish too. What a great group of gals and kids!!

...and so it begins....

some 10-month old pics

One of my former students is a professional photographer in Atlanta. She was in town visiting her parents a couple of weeks ago, and we met at the Railroad Park where she took a few pictures for us!

Happy Mother's Day!

My first mother's far, I have played on the floor with Andrew, given him breakfast, done his laundry, and now, I'm watching him take a nap! Being a mom. He is absolutely the most beautiful boy in the world. I am so lucky to be his mommy.

Andrew--I love you up to the sky.....and for all yesterdays, todays and tomorrows!

Happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful moms in my life--my own incredible mom, my sisters, aunts, cousins, nieces, friends, and fellow adoptive moms! We share the bond of motherhood and of making the world a better place through our children!
