A New Nephew

Eric has an identical twin brother who unfortunately lives in Oregon 3000 miles away. When we told them that we were pursuing the adoption of Anna they had some news of their own. They had also just begun the process of adoption from, of all places, Ethiopia (neither one of us had previously mentioned this to the other). I would say it is a weird twin thing, but it is much bigger than that.

So they had their court date today and now are the proud parents of this little boy - Kenenisa David Elder. We have a new nephew, the kids have a new cousin, Anna has an Ethiopian cousin, and Kenenisa has a forever family. God is good.

WOW! That is so awesome! How old is he? Our court date was today, too, and we haven't heard results yet!!

He is almost 4. I have checked your blog a couple of times to check on your court date. I hope you hear soon.

Oh, Kim! Thanks that made me tear up. God is good ... and we REALLY are going to need to figure out a way to chat more once we are home with him. Love how God continues to grow our extended family. :-)
