It's so wonderful that you have this for when he's older! I teared up just watching it. It's an amazing moment when you first meet your child :-)

Thank you for sharing this video with us. I'm sure you remember this, but as a waiting family I loved the little details of this video like hearing the lady ask you to take your shoes off before entering the building and hearing the Amharic in the background of the video. Your stories of Ethiopia have been a blessing to me. Thank you again for sharing.

Wow, I am truly blessed by the demonstration of love and care. Grace and peace be multiplied to the Oren family in the name of their Lord Jesus.
