Merry Christmas....a half a world away

I came across this video on someone else's blog and I absolutely loved it. Even though the video shows the adoption coming from China (and we're adopting from Ethiopia)...believe me, the feelings are the same. So Merry Christmas from all of us here... and to our two little ones "a half a world away", may God keep you safe in his arms until we can get there...just hold on...we're coming.

Watch Out World...Here Come the Hannas

Well, I have to admit that we have now decided to enter the world of "blogging". We wanted to have a home page where all our family and friends can come along with us on our incredible journey. You see, we are adopting. And this journey is taking us to the beautiful country of Ethiopia. We are not just hoping for one child, but we are praying and hoping for twins. Now, if you lost count from the picture above that would mean 5 kids in total...yes, I said it 5 kids. Crazy? Well, not really. We lost the whole sanity thing years ago. Seriously...though. We really feel that God has truly blessed us with so much and there are so many kids who have so little. Why Ethiopia you might ask? I hope this video shows you why...
