We feel so blessed to be able to call Denver and Seifu our sons! I am so thankful for adoption and all of the blessings it brings to a family. I know that at a time like this I should be focusing on all of the happy moments but I can't help but ache for these children. After spending so much time in the orphanage and bonding with all of these children my heart will forever be changed and I hope and pray that I will NEVER forget about these amazing kiddo's. When people ask me why we are adopting from Africa I just want to be able to teleport them to one of these orphanages and show them because words cannot come close to explaining this.
We had an amazing trip and can't wait to get back over there to bring our son home. Here are some pics from our trip.
Meet our son Seifu!!!
|Morgan Family pic on our court day!!! Of course we passed!!!|
|They loved each other from the beginning|
|Seifu and mom|
|They giggled so much and loved playing together|
|This was a little scary from momma but Seifu proved to be very strong|
|Mimi was helping Seifu read a book, we wanted to see how well he could read English. He proved to be pretty good at reading and math:)|
|Coloring Spider Man pictures, the coloring book was a huge hit for kids of all ages|
|Mom getting beat at checkers...I mainly left the checker playing to dad and Mimi. |
I'm more of a socializer not a deep thinker...plus Seifu was really good and I'm not competitive at all.
|On one of our many outings, packed in the backseat|
|Denver crashed on his brothers shoulder, it was so adorable|
|Another outing that wiped Denver out.|
|We ate at the volcano lake restaurant and it was yummy...unfortunately right after this was when the roof collapsed so we had to skip out on coffee and dessert. Although I would've probably been the only one willing to risk it for coffee :)|
|Seifu showing off some of his moves, he loves doing different lifts with his body.|
He is a lot stronger than I am that's for sure.
|Of course Denver wanted to try it out and his brother was so sweet to help him.|
|Dad and Seifu playing checkers...they are both pretty good and competitive so it was interesting.|
|Seifu loves his Mimi|
|We took Seifu to pick out some new shoes b/c all of his shoes were too small. He has really good taste, just like his momma. I was very impressed with the shoes he picked out. |
God bless you all!!!
