One Month Home

Easter Sunday Morning
Eli Dilyet - Home 5 days

We have been home a little over a month now.   Eli has been doing great.  He absolutely adores his brothers and sister.  He is also a nut!  Jonathan and I were just talking the other night about how quiet he was in Ethiopia that first week, and how at the time we thought how nice it was to finally have a quiet child.  Ha!  Eli is our noisiest yet!  It has been amazing to watch his personality unfold over the last several weeks.  His siblings really bring out his nuttiness.  We are just so glad to have him home.  

I know I am way behind on blogging, but I am planning to catch up and post about our trips to Ethiopia.  The last few months have been a little crazy with Jonathan's job change, 1st trip to Ethiopia, moving, home study update, 2nd trip to Ethiopia, and then more doctor appointments in the past 3 weeks than I think my other 3 have had combined over the last 6 years.  Thankfully all of the doctor appointments have gone well, and all the test results have come back great.  There was a concern that he may have a more serious underlying medical condition that caused a birth defect, but it turns out he doesn't.  We are obviously thrilled with this news and thanking God for protecting him.  We still have more doctor visits ahead of us as the birth defect still needs to be corrected, but it is wonderful to have answers and to know what it going on with our little man.
