መልካም ገና! Melkam Gena! (Happy Ethiopian Christmas!)

It's Christmas Day in Ethiopia!  Christian's on the other side of the world will be celebrating the birth of our Savior.  We are celebrating with them in our hearts.

Jan 7th holds another special spot in our hearts.  Last year on Jan 7th, Ryan and I landed in Cancun Mexico.  It was the first day of a week long vacation for just the two of us.  It was an amazing week.   We relaxed on the beach, took naps, ate too much food, laughed together, cried as together we read Mary Beth Chapman's "Choosing to SEE" book and best of all ... we celebrated.  As we were checking into our hotel we received the much awaited call from Wide Horizons.  We were matched with twin boys!  On Jan 7th, 2010 we found out we were going to be parents of 7 kiddos!  Now that is one awesome Christmas present!

  መልካም ገና! Melkam Gena!  Happy Ethiopian Christmas!

"For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."  Isaiah 9:6

I just love days that hold a special place in my heart. How wonderful to know that on that day, our brothers and sisters in Christ are celebrating the birth of our Savior!

I would love to hear how close the bone scan estimates are to what they thought in Addis.
