Abel will be a big brother!!

We have been matched with a darling baby boy! He is 5.5 months old.
His name is Eyob which is the Ethiopian version of Job. (pronounced ee yobe) I secretly thought/hoped this child would have an E name and Eyob has been a favorite Ethiopian name of mine since I first heard it!! Amazing! If only we could go scoop him up and bring home right now! Unfortunately, it will be a long haul from here on out.
