Announcing...

The referral of baby girl Solity, born November 4th, 2008, weighing 6 pounds, height 19 inches. She is a beautiful little girl with dark black hair and enormous dark brown eyes. She's got 10 little fingers and ten little toes, each long and slender; she has the biggest newborn feet I've ever seen! She is amazing and we look forward to getting a court date so that we can share her picture with you.

We are so excited and TN is ready to travel to Ethiopia... So are we!

Thank you for your support, once again! We look forward to sharing more about our growing family soon.

S, T and TN

Catching up

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry for such a huge delay in writing recently!

TN has grown so much and experienced her first Halloween where she got to knock on doors and say "trick or treat!" She had a of fun and she was a beautiful princess. She received many compliments and did a great job saying thank you. We had such a beautiful night for weather and it was so fun to play with her. I'll be posting pictures very soon.

TN continues to boggle our minds. She is such a dynamic child. She has this amazing sense of humor and is so smart it boggles the mind. Terry brought home a huge globe for her many months ago and she loves to play with it. She frequently drags it out of her room to play. She now knows how to find countries on her own. She knows these by heart:

Brazil
Japan
South Korea
Turkey
Yemen
Oman
Saudia Arabia
Ethiopia
Kenya
Madagascar
Australia (and Sydney and the East Australian Current)
Iraq
Iran
Sudan
Zimbabwe
Botswana
Afganistan
China
Thailand

She can also find Minnesota and Iowa (where mommy and daddy are from).
