My new Nephews!

Ethiopian Children

I am a happy uncle right now!
My sister has been working hard with her husband to adopt these two amazing boys.
It took them months to get everything perfect, from legal documents, to court dates, to coordinating with what probably seemed like 60 people.
I would have been in Ethiopia with them right now! I booked a flight out to document this exciting time for our family! But plans changed and they came back to the states as soon as they possibly could. Something about being sick and being in a third world country for an extended period of time can wear you out. So, I had to cancel my flight... I'm still very disappointed and sad I couldn't be there... but Daniel (known for his studly web design skills) captured some great images of their trip.
Here are a few pictures of my wonderful Sister, her Husband, my niece and their amazing journey adopting 2 brothers from Ethiopia.




My sister is amazing!

The new boys, I can't wait to meet them!

I've heard he's quite the ham. Always looking to get a laugh... and he'll get them if I can help it.

Ethiopia


This is quite the man. I don't know what our family would do without him.

My Sis and her boys, she's extremely happy here, I can tell.

Perfect brothers.


I can't wait to meet my new nephews! End of July I'll be heading up there to have some family time.
