We are home.
Exhausted, elated and very very happy to be home.
Rosie did great.. she is a mighty little girl. Elizabeth and I are physically and emotionally drained and doing our best to process everything from our time in Ethiopia. Everything went very smoothly, we didn't have any issues or problems with the embassy... our agency representative (Abdissa), was wonderful and so was everyone else at the orphanage. We stayed in a guest house in Addis Ababa with very kind and helpful people. Although we were nervous about the journey, Elizabeth and I were given support and welcomed warmly.
I will post more later, but I wanted to let you know that we are home, Rosie is gorgeous and healthy and we are all doing very well.


  1. YAY! She's finally home! So glad all went well and you're back safe!

  2. Maggie - I found your blog through the Triers and I am so happy to see you all again! We are back in Ohio and doing really well. I love seeing Rosie's smiley face in the photos; she looks like she is really blossoming and is content. I haven't updated my blog at all but hope to do so sometime this week. Wishing you and your family all the best. - Melissa, David, Lucy, & Jonas
