Bringing Lainey Home - In Photos

Our second trip to Ethiopia was incredible.  We experienced the culture, met amazing people who will always hold a special place in our heart, and spent our first week with our daughter!  Since time is a treasure more than ever now that Lainey is home and I feel I exhausted my journalistic energy our first trip, here is Trip 2: Bringing Lainey Home in Photos.

The Morgans with Efa, the Fitzpatricks with Bontu, and us with Lainey.  YWAM families at BeJoes Guest House.

Ty with L at the Thomas Center Orphanage.

Sweet Reunion.

An amazing woman whose love for our daughter and love for Jesus were evident from our first trip.
