Yes, We are HOME!

Hi all!  Yes, we are home.  A little weary, but oh so JOYFUL!  We are loving our little family and are enjoying getting to know Berhanesh a little more each day.  Forgive the randomness of this post, it is 4:45 am and I have some jet lag.   I am thankful that everyone else is asleep!

The flights were crueling, connections were barely made but little B did great!  She played and giggled and even went potty on the scary, DIRTY airplane toilet.  

We had a ton of family members and friends welcome us home, we all felt so loved!  Thanks!  

The baby has done GREAT with Abby and Ben, she took to them immediately.  The first night, we all slept in the same room together.  Berhanesh is terrified of our cat, open to the dog.  

She is eating great---we got her to drink milk!   Not a snacker but does have a healthy appetite.  
Will write more later...

Glad to hear that all went well and that little Berhanesh Ava did great on the trip home. I know that she feels all of your love and care for her. Praying for the adjustment time as you settle into your new normal routine.
Love and hugs and prayres,
