May 26th - part 2 - the sweetest moment

As we pulled up to the transition home I had so many emotions and questions!  Would she cry?  Would I cry?   Would she look like her pictures?   Would I instantly love her or would it take time?


The first time we laid eyes on our little Ethiopian princess!


 She didn't cry!



I did.


Right about now she's thinking, "Who are these white people?"


I totally hogged her, but Duane knew I would.


She was bigger than I expected and bald :).  They had to shave her head because of a scalp infection.  I'm just glad they take such good care of her.  I mean seriously.... look at those cheeks.




And as for that last question...... I instantly loved her.
