It's official...

We officially passed court in Ethiopia! TK Smalls is our son. For privacy reasons our agency asked that we not post photos or his full name until we return from our trip to Ethiopia which will be in 8-12 weeks.

We are so lucky and privileged to be granted this wonderful gift from the Ethiopian government. I am saddened that his family had to make such a huge sacrifice so that our family could be formed. I am consumed by all this bittersweet moment means for our little boy so blissfully unaware of the events that will bring him so far away to a new land and culture. I hope that we will raise him to be proud of his roots and proud of his beautiful country and his people.
