One thing I love about our agency is that they allow traveling families to take hundreds of photos of the kids and then when a family returns home, they upload the pictures to a group Snapfish account so that we can always see how our children are doing and watch their growth from afar. I know these pictures will also be a priceless memory for our boys one day as this last year was an important part of their history and I have all the photos in an album for each child. What has become humorous in these photos is this one particular teal sweatshirt that our son Mikias must have a fondness for…it’s shown up throughout various photos for a year now! My friend Celeste is in Ethiopia this week picking up her beautiful daughters and captured our little man’s smile, once again in the teal sweatshirt! I’m thinking I might just have to ask the caregivers if we can have it as a memento for him…he seems quite taken to it!
(Pictures are in ascending order, beginning with one taken last February and ending with one from Tuesday of this week!)
