I'm way behind, but we FINALLY were able to bring our son home from Ethiopia! Our Gotcha Day was May 27 and we came home June 1. Jaxson has been adjusting well.. better in fact than I ever imagined. Communication has not been an issue like I thought but it did help that I learned a few Amharic words to get by. In just a week, he is picking up English and can say & identify our family and a few objects. He can sign "please" and "thank you", has an infectious smile and a mischieviousness at times. Nate loves his little brother and is enjoying being the BIG brother.
I will write more about our trip later but for now, here's pics!
