O Happy Day!!

Hi Everyone,
Cyndi has been unable to access her blog from Africa, so you get me, a friend with no writing ability whatsoever! But, I know you all want an update, so here we go...

First of all, big sister said that they met Minte and he is "precious! just precious!" The love in her voice just moved me to tears. She said that he is very funny, loves to joke around and has already been playfully pranking her with his big brother. :)

They actually met Minte for the first time at a local coffee type shop. They were there, standing in front of the shop and saw Tegist drive up with Minte! After watching them find a parking spot and stop the car, Minte got out of the car, opened his arms as he walked towards them and then hugged all of them. They have had a lot of fun with him today and he even asked if he could go back with them tonight. (such an answer to prayers!)

He speaks some English and his birthday is actually on October 2nd instead of in September.

They had their Embassy appointment this morning and that went well, no glitches.

Tomorrow they will get to be with Minte again for most of the day, get his Visa and visit a museum in Addis. They also plan to visit the baby home and love on the precious little ones there.

They sounded tired, but so joyful. They were getting ready for bed and hoping to get a good night's sleep tonight. Please pray for that.

More updates to come...
