Friends Through Adoption Christmas Party

On Saturday, we attended a Christmas party with our Friends Through Adoption support group!
It was a fantastic time. Santa came for a visit! The children were adorable as they took their turns sitting on his lap and telling him what they want for Christmas.
We enjoyed Ethiopian food together--the smells of doro wat, beef tibs, and Ethiopian vegetables permeating the air together is incredible.
The mommas and mommas-to-be exchanged tree ornaments.
And I got to hold a baby girl recently brought home from Ethiopia. She was so sweet. I am pretty sure that when I become a momma, Colin is going to have to wrestle the baby out of my arms, because I am never going to want to let her go. :)
It was just so much fun talking to our friends and playing with children. We are meeting up again in January to celebrate Melkam Gena, Ethiopian Christmas! 
Precious children!


  1. What a fun time!!!
    You are right ... when you do get your little one, it IS hard to share. :-) I still have trouble sharing sometimes.

  2. That's great that you have such a great support group and fun playmates for when your little one joins your family. ;)

  3. What a lovely time and that support group is such a great idea. :) love that pic. Can't wait for when you get your baby girl or girls! You're going to be such a great mom!
