The expanded Brown family

We have our referral! We have actually had it since last week, but I am horrible at this so I am just now posting it. We are getting two brothers, Chera who is 4 and Kennessisa who is 2. They are both beautiful boys. They are thankfully very healthy. The next step is to get a court date in Ethiopia. Timelines are very uncertain with this process.

We went to celebrate at the Queen of Sheba, an Ethiopian restaurant here. This was both Justin and I's first taste of Ethiopian food. The injera will take some getting used to, but I really enjoyed my doro wat. Justin loved eating with his hands!
I can't post pictures of the boys on the internet until we have passed court in Ethiopia so if you see me, ask to see the pictures!

I am finally starting the blog! I have been meaning to do this for a while. My husband, Justin and I are currently adopting from Ethiopia. Right now, we are waiting for our referral. Hopefully soon we will know more about our child. We began the process at the beginning of February. It has went by very fast. I think I was so focused on completing the home study and dossier that the days and months flew by. I hope to have more news soon!
