Introducing...

It's my great honor to introduce the rest of our family...


Our son Hailemicael Andrews


Hailemicael with a fellow adoptive parent looking at our photos for the first time. I wonder what he thinks about us??


Hailemicael showing his WMU spirit!


Our daughter Minalush Andrews at 4 months old (this beautiful photo was just taken a few days ago)


Minalush's referral photo taken at around 3 months


So sleepy!


So surprised! Who keep flashing that light in my face anyways?


Minalush this week with her IV for pneumonia meds. Poor baby. Keep praying for her little body to be strong!

Thanks for sharing in our little slice of happiness. We are thanking God tonight for all he has done for us and for our children. Thank you everyone who has been praying and giving to get us to this point in this wonderful, wild journey. I'll keep you posted on any news we get about when we get to travel and realize the two long awaited hugs that we've been dreaming of.

Hailemicael & Minalush are precious - the most perfect fit, Andrews all the way! Such a sweet spirit revealed through Hailemicael's eyes and Minalush - ready for her Mama's care and special touch. Praying for Minalush's healing and peace over you all as you wait for travel. Congrats on passing court - His perfect timing continues to unfold!
