New pictures of our baby girl!

Our agency director arrived in Ethiopia today and her first stop was Miskaye, the orphanage that serves as home to our beautiful daughter Addis.

I am awestruck just looking at her.  In my humble opinion, she is stunning.

How about that hair!  I am clearly going to have to come to terms with my dislike for lotions and creams.  I think taking care of that head of hair is going to be a chore, but a chore that I am willing to tackle.


  1. Carol's Daughters Hair Milk... LOVE IT! Also, Olive Oil shampoo and mousse (bought at Walmart, Kroger, Meijer) is excellent for keeping the curls long and separate, rather than matted together. It's been fun to learn to do the hair. I've got a LONG way to go, but I'm getting there:) She is beautiful!

  2. YEA!!! So glad these finally made it to your inbox! She is STUNNING! I'm so jealous of all that hair, Eva's got a lot of catching up to do, ha ha!

  3. Dear Sara and Matt,

    You might not need my opinion, but I want to share it with you. Your girl is wonderful and sooooooooooooo very beautiful! The hair is not a problem, there in the States you will find the way how to keep it curly or straight. The main thing is that she is yours now. I am soooooooooooo happy for you! Good luck! Svetlana

  4. Those eyes are to die for....she will just bring you right in. What a beautiful little girl :) Can't wait to meet her! So happy for you you guys!!!!

  5. Is she wearing a "Feel the Beat" t-shirt with a skull and crossbones???? what is that about?!?! Carol's Daughter has tons of products for that hair-remember, my daughter's hair will alway be worse. =)
