I am the proud mama of four...

...officially. The joy is tangible in our house (felt in the sticky fingers from celebratory Easter candy and the wild hugs exchanged every time I meet the eyes of my oldest son). We received news this morning that our court case was approved in Addis, which means that all we wait on is a travel date. Let the packing begin...this mama is bringing home her son!

Leaping across the floor (at my age),crying with joy,and hugging Pappy. That was our reaction when we were told Moses will be coming home.
We are willing to stand in line with open arms to give him a big hug.
Love to all, Grandma and Pappy
