Here's Ahnya at 6 months

Here's a pic of Ahnya at 6 months old!!!!!!!!!!! This is one of the many pictures we received in our Social Report last Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can tell that she's happier, smilier, and oh so sweet! I can't wait to smooch on her and hold her. I don't think I'll ever put her down. She really is a sweetie!!!!!
Now we wait to receive her birth certificate and then we can arrange flights and prepare for travel. So hopefully, in 3-4 weeks we will be traveling to Ethiopia, Africa to meet and bring home Ahnya!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh it seems like we are so close now. We hopefully will have the birth certificate at the end of next week and then we'll know when we're leaving.
Thank you everyone for your prayers and support!!!!!! Our family and friends are amazing and I love you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congrats, she is beyond beautiful! I stumbled upon your page months ago and continue to keep your family in my prayers. I prayed for your family last night and couldn't wait to see pictures today!

My husband and I live in Slayton and are just beginning our second adoption (first domestic) through CHSFS and we've decided on Ethiopia this time around.

Thanks for sharing your story!
