Today one year ago...

(picture of Zek the same day that he arrived at Hannah's Hope)

One year ago today a 6 lb., 13 day old beautiful baby boy named Adam was brought from a government orphanage in Addis Ababa Ethiopia to Hannahs Hope, AGCI's orphanage and transitional home. In his short 13 days of life he had 3 different homes. He was with his birthmother his first week of life, the government orphanage his 2nd week of life and his 3rd week would start off in an all new place with all new caregivers. I can't imagine what goes on in a baby's mind when so many changes are happening so fast.

Across the world we were sitting unofficially at #2 just imagining our little guy and when would be the day that we would receive our referral. 12 days later would be our referral call.

Here is a post from one year ago yesterday...i was so ready for that call...little did I know that our baby boy was moving to Hannahs Hope the very next day.


  1. He is such a peanut!!! The Lord has truly blessed you guys this past year! See you tomorrow. :)

  2. WOW what a cutie & a precious journey. You probably have no idea who I am but I found your blog on Megan Rossi's and we are actually in the process of adopting as well. I love reading stories of other families completing their adoptions & their journeys. May God bless your family!!

  3. :) what a beautiful baby he was too! Happy one year!
