I met my son last week.

Heather and I took our first trip to Ethiopia to do our adoption in the court there and we got to meet Arthur for the first time! We spent a lot of time with him - playing, hugging, kissing, feeding, napping. It was the most amazing experience of my life.

We can't post any pictures of him just yet, until everything is squared away in Ethiopia. Sorry.

We also didn't get to bring him home because we have to wait on a lot of things to occur (his passport, Visa, etc.), and it was the hardest thing ever to have to leave him.

Will you pray with us that it will be a quick turnaround and that all things happen quickly so we can get back there and bring him home! I miss him terribly.

In the meantime, here is a teaser video taken right before we met our boy for the first time:


  1. I hate the teaser and love it both at the same time! Agh!

  2. wow, Aaron. Congratulations and speedy return with Arthur!

  3. oh my goodness i love this video! made me cry, of course. so happy of you two! Derek and i will be praying.
