Baby Dedication & Family Celebration Day!

We were blessed to dedicate Shani's sweet life to Jesus today at church! Both Micah and Shani did wonderfully up on stage in front of the "big church". Micah was so excited that he got to give Pastor John "knuckles"!!! (Thanks John!!!)

My favorite picture from the dedication... prayer time... 3 heads bowed (good boy Micah!!!!) ... 1 looking up to heaven and talking to Jesus himself I am sure! :)

Look at this angel in her first "full length gown"! We purchased this dress at the leprosy hospital in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a special occasion for Shani! This was it! What a beautiful angel!

Thank you to all our family and friends who were able to share in this wonderful occasion with us! We are so thankful for your loving support, prayers and encouragement and so blessed by this precious life that we have been entrusted with!


  1. What a wonderful day!! Congratulations. Sweet Blessings to you all.

  2. She is ABSOLUTELY beautiful! Your pictures brought tears to my eyes.

    We are adopting too, but domestically through an African American infant program. Praise the Lord you have your little girl home with you!
