5 Years Ago Tonight

5 years ago I was lying in a bed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia trying to go to sleep.  My heart was pounding and my mind was swirling, for in a few hours we would wake up and meet our sons.  I still remember clearly the sights, sounds, feelings and thoughts.  We had waited so long to be parents and then waited so long to bring our precious sons home.  I couldn't wait to hold them and love on them.  Meeting these two and becoming their mom is one of the GREATEST things in my life.  It has been an incredible journey.  I could write pages and pages on the last five years, but I won't.  I spent about 30 minutes going through our pictures.  My plan was to pick two from each March since we got them.  That only lasted for the first year.  After 2010 I was so caught up in memories I just starred adding liking pictures left and right.  They are SO cute I ended up with about 170.  So here are our boys since 2009.  They are amazing.  We are so honored to be their parents.  It is a joy a privilege.  I love these little men more than I ever thought I could love anyone.  Thank you Jesus for giving them to us!!!
