WE PASSED COURT TODAY!!!!!

I have dreamed of being able to say "WE PASSED COURT" for so long now ... and today is the day. Unexpectedly, one day before we were expecting to hear any news, which makes the news even sweeter!!! No sleepless night beforehand, or a pounding heart and sick stomach waiting to hear news. So now, without any further delays ...

I would like to introduce ....


DAGMAWI WISTROM (our precious 7 year old son!)



And ......



TARIKU WISTROM (our precious 2 year old son!)

I'll stop by and post more pictures later ... now I'm off to book flights and savor this moment!




Oh wait ... just one more ...
