Update on Mekonen!

We got an update on Mekonen about a week ago on how he is growing and he is doing great! Here are his stats! :) hehe
Dear Mekonen,
Daddy and I are so excited to meet you face to face and bring you home forever. We are getting so many things ready for you! We are talking a lot about how we will teach you about Jesus and how we are praying that you grow into a strong leader of all your brothers and sisters to come. We are shopping for you, getting clothes and bottles and books and toys! Daddy has been working so hard on your crib and dresser. They are going to look amazing! We've been telling your dog Macy all about you. She can't wait to play! :) We booked our plane flights to come get you and we leave in exactly one month today, on your Grandma's birthday! Your cousins, Manny, Aderyn, Natalie & Jane, and new baby Daniels on the way, are so excited to finally meet you. They have been calling you "Baby Konen" and already love you to pieces! I take a photo album of your pictures with me everywhere I go. At first talk of you, I whip out your pictures to show off my beautiful boy. I have a long to-do list of all the things I want to get done before you come so that everything is all ready! I can't wait to spend my days with you! I have been dreaming about you every night. How incredible to have your little face on my mind all day and night! I dream and think about you so much at night that it keeps me awake. I watch the few videos we have of you several times a week and just stare in awe at the incredible gift you are to our lives. I study your facial expressions and your eyes. I love the little thing you do with your eyebrows. I can't describe it, but it's very quick and subtle, but I can spot it right away. We miss you so much and are coming to get you soon!
Love,
Mommy

I bought it on Amazon.

I just came across your blog. My husband and i are also from central Indiana and in the process of adopting a baby boy from Ethiopia. We are waiting for a referral now.
