Heading out from Memphis Airport

Flying across the world

First Glimpse of Abigail

She had just woken up from a nap. The first thing she wanted to do was show us the pictures we sent her back in February of her new family.

Her top bunk in the transitional home. She lived in a room for 5 months with 15 two to five year olds. What was amazing was how all the kids seemed to love the community and how they could sleep through anything.

Abigail seemed to love us just as quickly as we had grown to love her!

First breakfast together. We stayed at the New Flower in Ethiopia. A guest house only for adopting families.

We went exploring the Mercado, the largest open air market in Africa.

That afternoon we went on a walk and i caught this cute shot of Mom & Daughter.

She is so cute.

Later on during the week I took her on a Father/Daughter date for Coffee and Ice Cream!

We finally found Abigail some appropriate shades!

Ashleigh has found a coffee buddy. Abigail loves coffee!

Abigail’s first flight!

Last Flight before we get home.

Checking out her new world!

Finally all together!
