The Journey of a Lifetime

Ryan and I have decided to pursue our forth adoption and add another beautiful baby to our family. We couldn't be happier and are thrilled! Join us in our journey in adopting baby Schlenner!

We're a family!!!

We're settling into a daily routine and trying to establish a "schedule" for our little bundle!!! Ahnya pretty much sleeps and eats! She seems much more like a 6 month old and our pediatrician also confirmed that her age seems to be closer to a six month old rather than an eight month old. Her age is estimated and as the Ethiopian calendar is different. Regardless, she's a joy and we're all in love with Ahnya.
It's really amazing what a little baby brings to a family; love, laughs, new outlook on life, and overall peacefulness. In the grand scheme of things...Ahnya is refreshing and Ryan and I are so blessed and thankful for this gift! Gabriella and Jocelyn are the "mother hens" of the house. They're constantly making sure that I'm feeding her enough, changing her pants enough, and wanting to help all the time!!!
