Embassy Day!

Today was our embassy appointment. It went very smoothly (other than the escape-artist who kept running out the door and down the path). Ethiopia ok'd Bear's adoption on December 31st. The US ok'd it today. We are not allowed to have cameras in the embassy and there really is not much to take pictures of. It is similar to waiting at the DMV for a new license except that instead of leaving with a washed out picture of yourself looking surprised and/or irritated, you leave with a beautiful baby!

Here is a picture of my big boy ready to leave for the embassy.




And here is a picture of Andrew on his embassy date. Isn't it funny how they are sitting in almost the exact same position?
