A different kind of adventure!!

We had the wonderful blessing of being a part of bringing Kibron, Reece & Trina's newly adopted little boy from Ethiopia, back to the U.S. Trina is Callie's former college roommate, matron of honor, and one of her best friends. Reece & Trina's mom, Pati, flew to Ethiopia to pick Kibron up, flying through DC on the way. We basically just drove them from Reagan National Airport, where they came in, to Dulles airport, where they were flying out. On their way back to Seattle flying back through DC, we were looking forward to having them here for a day while they rested between flights. Little did we know that those 8 hours would stretch to 52!!! As soon as Reece, Pati, & Kibron flew in last Fri. at 7:30 AM the flights got cancelled going out because of the approaching snow storm. It started to snow at 10 AM and didn't stop until Sat. about 3PM. We were finally able to get them out on Sunday morning via a limo/taxi service, which took them to Union Station in DC where they got on Amtrak to take them to Newark, NJ, where they were able to get on a flight home. We know it was hard on Reece & Trina to wait to get Kibron home, but we sure enjoyed our time getting to know him!

A lot of the time, Kibron would just sit and take it all in.

Kibron loved Kacie's old Cabbage Patch doll!!
