Ohio, part 3: Eliza's visit

When we were in Ethiopia picking up Sidamo, we fell in love with one of his little roomies, Lechame. She was teensy and delicate and had the sweetest, shyest smile. When we came home, I sort of stalked her a little bit and tracked down the family that adopted her so I could stalk them too. Well, as luck would have it, they live only a short drive from my father's home in Ohio, so we were able to see them last time we visited and this time too. And as luckier would have it, Eliza's mom Alicia is super cool, so we get to have fun while watching the most adorable children on earth.

This is right after Eliza asked Nora to be her maid of honor.

Keep trying, Eliza, he'll come around.

Aww, we're so glad it turned out to be such a small world! :) I *love* the maid of honor conversation. :) Maybe by that time the hugs will be a little less one-sided, huh ;)
