Happy 7th Birthday to my oldest son. The last four years have sped by. It seems like just yesterday that I met my baby boy in Ethiopia who clung to me, as he started his new life in America. He always wanted to be my side. Now as someone said the other day he is a little man. I love to watch him play soccer, baseball, skateboard, and spend time with his friends. Three trips to Ethiopia and four kids later I am changed. Meron, Estifanos, Kayeso and Yordie inspire me everyday. I love being their Mom, and am blessed with this journey life has taken me on. Life has taught me that we can never plan because things change. The change that comes will be a million times better than anything we could of planned or dreamed of.
