a few more pics and a video

Thank you so much for all the sweet comments. We really appreciated them especially after leaving, it was nice to come home to. Leaving Zaidee was so so hard, we're praying we'll be back soon. Here are a few more pics the dress above is a traditional Ethiopian dress, Adam picked it up for her at the market. It's a bit big but so super cute on her. I also added a few videos, I apologize in advanced for my high pitched loud mommy voice. You might want to mute it :)

We passed court!

Introducing Miss Zaidee. She is ours forever! I am rocking her to sleep as I type, she's sucking her thumb noisily (partly because she is so congested) and her eyes are barley open. Adam and I are in heaven. I think we've kissed her a million times. Honestly I don't know how we're going to leave tomorrow. For those of you not in the adoption world Ethiopia requires two trips, with anywhere from 2-4 months in between trips. Please pray for us that we can get this little one home soon she turns 4 months in two days and weighs 9 lbs. We love her so much! Thank you so much for all your prayers. Heavenly Father has blessed us so much. I look at her and I am in awe that he has given us such a huge blessing. She is such a sweet precious little girl xoxo

Match Day!

Thursday was Adam's match day for Ophthalmology Residency. Adam was on an overnight with me in Ontario, CA. He had a transitional year interview there that day. We woke up at 4am to find out if he had matched or not via email. Then we couldn't get back to sleep! We were so anxious all morning. We went down to get something to eat and were just staring at the phone. Adam interviewed at 10 places so we could've literally gone anywhere. Adam ran to the bathroom and low and behold the phone started ringing! I couldn't believe it, it was an 801 number! I ran to get Adam and as soon as he looked at the phone he got a huge grin on his face and we both started freaking out after he got the good news that he matched at the University of Utah! We are so excited we get to stay in Utah another 4 years. They have an automatic match into their transitional year program so Adam cancelled his interview and we went out and played all afternoon! It was so fun. I'm so proud of Adam he has worked so hard for this. I love ya sweetie xoxo
