It was two years ago today we 'met' our Tesfanesh, through paperwork and two photos. Oh dear... the photos. I tear up every single time I see them.
The bald head, the toothy smile.
The short pants, the tiny hands on the little extended belly.
They get me every time.
We thought we loved you then, looking at these pictures, that it was love at first sight. Which it was, to some degree - but we just didn't know the half of it. I could never had comprehended on just how much I could really love another human being until I met you.
After a lifetime of being the quiet one, realizing it isn't always easy to stay quiet. Passions include family, photography, ethics, and tuna noodle hotdish. Has a seething hatred of bumper stickers.
The Family : Brad
Husband of six years - I'll just speak for him and say he wouldn't change a single moment of it. Likes include riding his motorcycle, family, talking about his motorcycle, cooking, and talking about other's motorcycles. Incredibly hardworking and dedicated, he puts my level of motivation to shame.
The Family : Funky Fresh Super Tes
Daughter Tesfanesh, currently 4, bringing sunshine to our lives since her homecoming April '08. Possesses a complete zeal for life & keeps everyone captivated. Spunkiest little Ethiopian I know - our heart and soul. She is pretty sure she is a lion, so beware of the roar.
The Family : Fischer the Cat
Spends days watching the squirrels frolicking outside, drinking out of the toilet, and always throwing up on the carpet, never the easier-to-clean linoleum. A happy, mellow little addition to our lives, and Tes' best friend.
