Etienne is speaking in complete sentences! The above title is what he told me today, while pointing at my grandfather, "Mommy, he's my favorite." My grandpa, Marv, lived his life as a western Nebraska farmer and postman, and I can guarantee he NEVER imagined he'd fall in love with his African grandson! These two are hilarious to watch together, they giggle, snuggle and chat. To Ryan and I, this is an especially remarkable display of God's goodness. Prior to our bringing the boys home, we had reservations about how and when we would tell my grandparents that our newest kids would be African American. We should have known that God would use Etienne and Zeke's chocolate eyes and snuggly pudge to soften hearts.
