Hi all,

Sorry I have not posted yet, and will post the whole story but must wait a bit until I have brain function. We still seem to be on Ethiopia time, so I'm running on about 1.5 or 2 hrs. of sleep a night. Not enough. Hopefully will have more energy and powers of concentration in a couple of days. Meanwhile, the little one is a treasure and adores her big sister. The big sister adores her baby sister right back, but is experiencing some jealousy issues. Hmmmm. More later. Here are a couple of pictures to tide you over! The christmas one is one of 10 that are either blurry, girls looking like refugees from a mental intitution, picking noses, fighting, etc. Oh well. Will try again later. haha The first picture is at 2:30 am the night we got in from the airport! They sure look better than I did!

The girls are quite lovely, and those Christmas outfits are darling. Very happy you are nearing the end of the process and the 'beginning' of a new life!

so glad you are home with two beautiful girls. Am sure there will be some teething issues, but they will settle soon.
thank you for reuniting them and securing a happy future for them.

That is such wonderful news that you are all home together in time for Christmas - it warms the heart to see such beautiful pictures and read that they are behaving as most sisters do (hopefully things will calm down soon, though). Many, many congratulations from the other side of the world. I'm sure this will be a Christmas like no other for you.

Wow! I've been waiting and checking back every day to see if you guys were back yet. Can't wait for the story. If it's half as good as the first one, I'll be in tears.

How lovely to see your two little girls together again at last!

Hopefully we'll soon see some pictures of little sister smiling, too. It must be very hard for her just at the moment.

Hope everything goes well for you all, over the Holidays and in the future :-)
