Latest


Booo us for not posting in a while. We are still coming down from the craziness of the last couple of weeks, but that is no excuse.

Above is the latest picture we have from a family who just went to Ethiopia to pick up their child. Thanks Zach and Erin! Their report makes us so excited to go get him:

He was so cute! He was definitely the biggest personality in the room, smiling and laughing every time you looked his direction. He kicked and played when you talked to him, and he seemed to be very ticklish!

Latest news is that we leave DC on September 10th and will return sometime between the 20th and 24th. As far as names, we are down to two, but are not revealing until we pick one so none of you feel like jerks for commenting that you hate the name we eventually pick!

Ellie and Ansley Mills are good and are getting excited about their new brother... at they tell us they are.

More to come soon!
