Family Time with the Coon Cousins

When we arrived home, my brother was actually in China for work.  Since they were not able to make it to the airport, they ended up coming to Indiana the following weekend.  We had a great time hanging out at our house with four kids playing all day long.  The kids were adorable.  






Life is good.  Being a parent has changed our lives.  We look forward to the time that we get to spend with Tegegn.  His laugh is contagious.  His smile melts our hearts.  We are forever grateful that God had a plan because we would not have it any other way.  Tegegn knows we are his parents.  He looks to us for comfort.  He knows he is safe with us.  He loves to be held.  He hates peas.  He likes cheerios.  He can wave.  Children are amazing.  I am happy that I am a mom.  God is good!

God is so good! Life is changing as we speak. It's so amazing from day to day how things change with children. It's those warm fuzzy moments that melt us into putty. It's a total new understanding in life.
