On Sunday March 1st Addis Hambleton Carpenter turned 1! We celebrated Addis with many friends who walked through the adoption process with us and were nearly as excited as we were when we knew about him. It was amazing to think about what took place a year ago from that day. His birth, the field, the cow and the women who ushered him to safety. Then a year later, eating a mini cupcake with blue frosting surrounded by people who have loved, cared, prayed and make his sweet journey now with him.
Some Addis stats:
