Meetcha Day

Well, as most of our friends know, we have been to Ethiopia and back!  We appeared in court on July 3, and Jackson Dechasa Kirk is officially our son.  We did not get to bring him home on this trip.  We will return to Ethiopia in approximately 4 weeks to bring him back to the United States.  There are emotions on top of emotions that we are still processing.  I want to speak more about our time in Ethiopia as soon as we've had the chance to really process all that we saw and experienced.

But for now, Wes has been busy working on videos of our trip.  There are two.  One of the trip to Ethiopia in general, and one of the experience of meeting our son.  I think they speak for themselves.  Toady I will post our Meetcha video.  Enjoy.  :)


  1. Great joy, Wes! Impressive work :) and what a beautiful way of capturing and displaying what God accomplished in such a short few days - the love and bonds that are evident in each look. love it. tears of joy over here! love you!

  2. Awwwwe!!!! That was JUST AWESOME!!!! LOVE IT SOOO MUCH!! TEARS OF JOY FOR YOU!!! Moments you will never forget, so sweet, so miraculous!! My boys watched this SO intently, asking his name, and asking if they could play with him, etc. We were all captivated by seeing the sweetness and bonding that happened between you. Can't wait to meet him. Praying as you wait to hold him in your arms again.
