Our friends Justin and Donna Brown had no children this time last year. They were anxiously waiting bringing home their daughter, Zoey Hiwot, from Ethiopia while their paper work on their sons, Chera and Kenenisa, drug on in Ethiopia. Zoey came home in December 2010 and their sons were still not here. Into the spring of 2011, they found out they were pregnant. Their son, Asher, was born in July 2011. FINALLY, almost three years after starting the adoption process to bring home their sons, Chera and Kenenisa walked down an escalator in Louisville, Kentucky. You read correctly. They had zero children this time last year, and now they have a 1 month old, an almost 2 year old, a 4 year old and almost 7 year old. We rejoice with this sweet family. JT even had the opportunity to meet the boys and Zoey while they were still Ethiopia last July. The pictures below are from the airport on Satruday night. This is the best part of adoption....celebrating with others.
