Home!!

We arrived home yesterday with Abeba. I can't even begin to put into words all of the things that we experienced on our Journey the past week in Ethiopia, but I am going to try over the next week or so. We are thankful for all of your prayers and tips for our time there. Our lives have been forever changed by our time spent there. We left with a desire to see what more God would have us to do for the people there. To those of you that we promised pictures to I will send them on as soon as I can, if you have children in the Gladney care centers, I probably have pictures of them, so feel free to email me their name and a picture and I will check. Abeba has done incredibly well since we got home. Within a matter of 5 minutes when we walked in the door she was down on the floor playing with all our children, it was amazing to see our family complete. Abeba had a very difficult time last week with the transition to us, and many other things I will post on this more later. Again, we thank you all for your continued prayers as we continue our journey.
