Melkin Yedidet Beaal -Merry Christmas

Last year a tiny little 6month old baby boy was spending his first Christmas at Hannah's Hope. He was fairly new there and no doubt wondering where his momma went and when she would come back. I'm sure he was scared in his new surroundings and grieving some loss. I'm also sure that his momma wasn't celebrating on this day as she had her own grief at the loss of her baby boy.
Neither of them knew that just a day before two people thousands of miles away had seen a picture and heard about a little boy named Tamirat in Ethiopia. They were already falling in love and praying this child would be their son. You see they wanted nothing more in the world then to be parents.
This year Noah Tamirat is spending his 2ND Christmas in a much different place. He is being raised to know his birth mom and how much she loves him. He is comfortable in his surroundings and we hope he has let go of some of the grief. I hope this year his birth mom can celebrate and know in her heart that her son is loved and taken care of with two people that are incredible blessed to be his parents and will never forget the amazing woman that gave him life.

*just a note this outfit has matching pants but we waited to long to have him wear it and now the pants are to short*.
