Welcome Home,
Hensley Binyam Hannah

Our friends, Curtis and Meredith Hannah, returned home on January 1, 2010 with their son, Hensley. Curtis updated his facebook status on Saturday morning with something to the tune of, "we are home. Come visit." I am sure many people thought he was being nice but we took it literally. It was amazing to see Hensley and see an adoption come to fruition. We stayed for about an hour playing with Hensley and talking to Meredith and Curtis about their experience. Just holding him and talking with them made our own adoption seem even more real. We have met several adoptive families, but this was different to me. It was different because when we saw them on December 23 there was no Hensley, and last night there was. JT and I got in the car and we were speechless. It was another reminder that we are doing what we are supposed to be doing. Thank you, Curtis, Meredith and Hensley!!!!!

(Their blog is to the right "Two and Counting") Below are pictures of JT, Hensley and myself with Hensley's ornament we made over a month ago. Also, there is one with JT helping Hensley with his bottle, although he is pretty self sufficient with the bottle.
