this blog was created to chart the journey to Ethiopia and back...Tessa Bezu came home August 2008!
Auntie Kiki and Uncle Jim are her Godparents - you can feel their love in this picture!
Yes, a snow storm! And of course our church isn't near our home! Go figure!! But it was truly beautiful!!
My Mom took this picture ~ It's spectacular!
Our small and intimate brunch out after - it was perfect!
It goes without saying (even though I've said it) that your daughter is beautiful and looks spectacular in her dress and hat. She looks like a snow angel. Your church is unbelievable... talk about the WOW factor!
What a beautiful, love-filled and personal day for your family! Your whole family is one of God's biggest blessings! What a great gift!
Congrats..it looked like a perfect day for a perfect little angel!In Him,Bethany
Beautiful pictures of your beautiful family!
I love everything about your day...The church, the brunch, the HAT! Little Tessa must have felt like such a princess. She looked like a little angel. What a special and perfect day! Much love, D
What a beautiful day and a beautiful family!
Lori,How beautiful. I have always thought that Tessa is a beautiful child but she looks so peaceful, too. I look at her so differently, now. I look at her thinking that Little M might be her age. Thank you for all your support and kind words. You are amazing. As for the foreign exchange student, et al....trust me, I went on a cleaning frenzy, bought new towels and sheets, grocery shopping, and I am worried about showing him all of the sights. The snow that fell was a gift from God. It took a few things off our plate.
Oh Lori that is so beautiful! I loved all the pictures. She is such a beautiful little girl. What a special time!
She looks radiant! What a special day. I love the pic of you guys in the snow. :)Having trouble posting a comment here- It's Em, not anonymous. :)

Wow...What a gorgeous sanctuary! Tessa is beautiful and I LOVE that you guys put her at the head of the table for her extra special day! :)Theresa
