Welcome to our Site ... This is a Journey of our Adoption from Africa and our Life in Denver.

This journal (blog) is about adoption, our change of life from California to Denver and my little girl who we have adopted from Ethiopia. My daughter came home to us after 9 months of tons of paperwork and she has come home to on August 18th, 2008.

I highly encourage you to post comments at the end of any post if you'd like.

So far, this has been an amazing journey. The adoption process is more "stuff" than you can imagine leading to what has been an incredible change in our lives. This journal is from my heart to you the reader and to our daughter. It is also dedicated to the biological parents of our adopted girl who may or may not be alive. I do know that Tigist was placed in a safe place to be found by police, who then took her to an orphanage. In doing so, they saved her life! I applaud her Mother and/or Father's courage in the decision to offer their child a life full of opportunity. They decided to put her up for adoption by relinquishing her in such a way. This is such a touchy subject, yet very personal to both the biological parents and me. We will always honor them in the lives of our daughter...they will never be forgotten! That....I can promise.
