This is part of the welcome crew. What a great way to walk out of airport security!
Bianca meeting her little sis for the first time....What a priceless moment.
The Outman crew give Solie some love! They are waiting for their twin boys from Ethiopia, who had a crib right across from Solie's! Check out their blog.
Long long time best bud Trac welcomes little Solie!
These great signs made by the Outman crew
We have been home 3 weeks today! Feels like forever. SOlie has made such an amazing journey from a far off and wonderful place and she is just the sweetest baby. We are so humbled and thankful that God would give us this child to love.
I have lots of great new pics to share but did not want to miss out posting this good stuff!

What an awesome day! The video of our first few moments meeting Solie Koket! our great friends, the Turman;s took the video of us meeting Solie for the first time...PRICELESS!!! Thank you Truman's.
The first part of the video is just a short video we recorded for Bianca while we were away,
This child was so so loved by the nannies and workers at Sele Enat. We are FORVER thankful to these wonderful people and this loving place.
Much Much Love'

I just want to THANK GOD for this time. Wow, I cannot believe how blessed our lives are that we get to parent little Solie! I am blown away!
Please pray for our trip...Mainly for Solie,her little heart to be prepared for a momma and daddy. Also for each orphan living without a parent tonight...Wow, that number is astronomical,,,and totally wrong.
We all deserve to be loved and cared for. And EVERY child deserves and home full of love.
I am so thankful for the people in our lives that have walked this path with us again. You have really really been so wonderful to us and we will forever be thankful.
On another note...I really am hoping to get photos of every child at Solie's orphanage while we are there for their parents in the US. I do not want to miss anyone, so please send us some good vibes, so I can be organized enough to make this happen for these anxious parents!
Will write as I know more...see more and experience this whole thing with Eric...I can't wait! I have always wanted to travel to Africa with him...And now it is such a life changing trip for us!
GOD IS GOOD!
