We made it!

We can't thank EACH of you for your prayers and support. We arrived in Ethiopia about 10:00 pm last night. ( we are bit jet-lagged) Our first stop was the emergency room for Nehemiah. He had to be escorted off the plane in a wheelchair and it was rather scary. The doctors were so kind and helped him get back on his feet again. It was nice his mom was here or we would not have known what to do. We only had two of our kids getting sick on the plane--I was just thankful it was not four:) We had such an incredible time in DC as well. We had a quick tour and even saw the Declaration of Ind-- I felt very patriotic walking through the Archives building.


OK NOW FOR THE BEST NEWS! Malachi is absolutely WONDERFUL. There are no words for how blessed we feel by this little one. He is very sick, but still laughed and loved the kids. He is such a cuddler and has made me tear up over and over with little pats to my back. He is so quick to want to play and be hugged. He is much more tiny than I thought he would be. I think he has lost weight with being so sick. We are trying to figure out how to help him so he can fly home with ease. He is one happy little guy and did I mention handsome too??? We are able to visit him two times a day and hope we can take him with us very soon. It depends on his health and if we can manage here with limited supplies and all.


We had such a great lunch with his mom and family today. We love Ethiopia and my kids are such troopers and enjoying it all. It is a lot to take in, but so wonderful. THANK YOU!


With Much Love, The Heye Family


ps-- the kids wanted to say hello to their classmates
