Adding Andrews Photos

Ben and two of our wonderful children are sleeping and our tour guide doesn't have us running around anywhere so I thought I'd post some pictures.  Immediately before meeting the kiddos I thought that I would surely faint or throw up or something equally embarrassing but I pulled it together an just cried a muffled cry.  I was trembling uncontrollably and overwhelmed with emotion.  We have had the children at the hotel with us almost 6 or 7 hours and they have been absolutely wonderful.  Hailemicael is very polite and was obviously raised to obey and respect his parents.  He was very excited about his new shoes and was eager to take a shower in the hotel shower.  I think he thought it looked fun... he look a LONG HOT shower and was all grins.  Minalush has not cried once.  She smiles and laughs and make cute noises.  I feel like I am in a dream...and I don't want it to end.
These photos are from when we first met on Monday afternoon, and no, I did not pass out...

Aww! I am so glad the reunion of your kids went well. Your words make me smile and tear up. I am so happy for you all.

So happy for you to have met your new kids! How exciting and emotional. Love the pics - keep them coming.

Your furry girl is fine here. We felt sorry for her by herself, so she's been coming over in the evenings and hanging out. She does after a while get irritated with the boys and then we take her back to her peace and quiet. She's a good girl!
See you soon - can't wait to meet our NEW neighbors!
