"He's Perfect!..."

...are the first words Heather told me about their son! My name is Jessica and I am one of the many best friends she has. I was lucky enough to be painting their house with her mother-in-law when Heather called so I got a few details! She is sending a blog soon for me to post for her, but until then I know she would want her friends across the miles to have an update!

Heather said their flights went well! They made it to Ethiopia fine, but somehow encountered a very interesting and lengthy taxi cab ride to the care center. (I'm hoping she has more details on that!) They finally made it to the care center Friday morning and were able to meet Charlie Fekadu Beauchamp for the first time! They seem to be bonding so well already! Heather explained that he has already called Adam "Da Da" and let Heather kiss a boo boo on his elbow when he fell down. He is also running over to them from across the room with arms wide open! I am hoping to get more details from her soon and I will post them as soon as I get them! For now all I know is that they are in ET, they are safe, and they are a happy family!
