Vermont...

We took another quick journey. Not really an adventure- except the unknown reactions of our boys reuniting.  They were in care - together- the whole time. As single mom's in the same travel group- adopting 2.5 year old boys- we leaned on each other often.

The two of them at the guest house in Ethiopia

The things these two have made it through together. The things they have seen. I imagine these two sticking by eachother. Both smaller than most of their playmates. Teg, sickly and weak and carefree. "Mo" quick, strong and compassionate beyond his 3 years. I imagine- they were each others constant .. safe ground.



They are the same age and from what I can remember, in Ethiopia- they were the same size (although Teg was gaining weight quickly!!)


The pictures don't do justice. There was lots of squealing (Teg) and lots of kisses ("Mo"). He recognized us right away. Teg was in a bit of shock- but the squealing of joy commenced upon getting him unbuckled from his car seat. There were in eachothers arms for hugs immediately!  From then on- it was as if they'd been together all this time and we were just in the way!

Quinn met his best friend when he was about a year and his friend was a year and a half. Instant bond in day care. Jake would wait with a car in his hand for Quinn not playing with the other boys till Quinn showed up. I have no doubt your two were the same. Quinn and Jake are still very close even though we live over an hour a way. They have a connection that I know will last for years. What a blessing. It will be so fun watching these two growing up!

I saved this blog to my favorites, but I never see updates. I guess the bite marks healed. ? I am hoping to adopt as a single mom, so I liked reading your blog.
