Our One Year Referraliversary!!

It's hard to believe, but it was exactly one year ago today {November 14th, 2011} that we got the call we had been waiting for and saw our son's sweet face for the first time.

My, how our little man has changed in the last year!

We have been through so much as a family this last year, from crying out to God for answers as to why it was so hard to get our son home, to exhilaration over getting good news about our case, to holding our son for the first time, to uniting our family forever.  

Some of the most wonderful, exciting days of our lives have taken place since that phone call last November {seeing Bek's face for the first time, the call to inform us of our court date, meeting/holding Bek for the first time, driving away from the House of Hope with Bek in our arms for good, walking off the plane and introducing our three kids} and we've gone through some of the most difficult tests of faith in this last year {the day we realized that our court date wouldn't be assigned until five months after our referral, not passing court, leaving our baby in Ethiopia while we came home}.  

And yet, through it all, God was so so faithful.  We are forever changed and we are so grateful!
