Introducing....Our New Sons

I can now officially say we have two more sons. Please let me introduce to you Ephrem and Anteneh Lewis. Aren't they beautiful? From what my husband is saying, we should expect to go get them in about six to eight weeks......about the same time I have to wait for this little blessing that is woven beneath my heart. My heart is so full it is about to burst.....

This is
Anteneh. He is documented to be about 8 years old but the doctors examining him think he may be about a year younger. Steve had commented to me that he is robust, loud, playful and loves lots of physical touch. He better get ready.....because I can't wait to get my hands on this little guy!

This is Ephrem. He is documented to be about 10 years old. As with
Anteneh, the doctor seems to think he is about a year younger than reported. My husband says he is more reserved and cautious but always smiling. After being there for three days, Ephrem finally gave Steve his first hug and would not let go. I am going to love this guy a lot.....I can tell.

Here are the nannies that took care of our precious sons during their two and a half year stay at the orphanage. I would give each of these amazing women a tight hug for giving their time and love to all the children there. I have no doubt God used them as angels to protect and nurture these young children. Thank you.

There you have it. I am prouder than a rooster and more thankful than a beggar on the streets for these two boys. Welcome Ephrem and
Anteneh to our family....we can't wait until you are home with us.
