Meet Our Kids!
It's official! The court proceedings in Ethiopia went as planned. We're officially parents - again.
Meet Netsanet (pronounced Net-sonnet, age 5) and Mekdelawit (pronounced Meck-della-wit, age 3), the cutest girls anyone could ask for. We're keeping their given names. For all practical purposes, though, they'll be known as Neti (Netty) and Meke (Mee-Kee). We've got very little information about their history. We know that both parents "died of sickness". Perhaps AIDS? We don't know. However, Neti and Meke both tested negative for HIV. They've been in the orphanage since April.
We're scheduled to travel to Ethiopia on July 6-14.
