Update Photos...

...and they're smiling!!!!

Despite our best efforts, Geoff and I were unable to coax a smile out of our little Seth Asrat while we were with him in February (though we got quite a few from his little sister).  In addition, none of the photos we've received of the kids so far have captured their smiles.  So imagine our delight to receive these beauties!!

  22. Hi Ruth, I couldnt figure out from your blog how to email you privatly so I will keep this short. I just wanted to tell you that I believe I saw your daughter when we were in E for our court date, were they in KVI Adama at the end of Feb? Were were there with another couple (I believe she sits on the Imagine BOD) Anyways I saw her pointing at a girl and said, "that's Ruth's girl" She wsa adorable and looks just like the picture you have on your blog. I could be wrong. Anyways, just wanted to share that with you if it was her and that she looked so happy. Melissa

  23. Melissa - thanks for your comment about seeing her!!!! HOw awesome is that. Yes, it would have been her, if you were there at the same time as Lianne...because I know Lianne saw her too. I'm so glad to hear that she seemed happy. Thanks so much for letting me know!!!!!!

    And thank you all for your comments. I'll be writing more soon...just terribly busy at the moment.

    Blessings,

    Ruth
