Isaac speaks…

“Okay—so of course I’m not talking yet…but lemme tell ya…my momma–she can totally read my mind…so check this out…THIS–is my new crew…”

“Oh yeah–we get totally O.O.C here. That’s Out. Of. Control. people. And I love it…I thought Hannah’s Hope was crazy–but they don’t have anything on this joint…”

“For REAL—these people love to make me smile…they are always crackin’ me up…”

“And AS IF my momma doesn’t give me enough kisses…I got this new sister who smothers me to. The ladies LOVE me here…”

“Then I get big squeezes all day long…”

“I got a break this weekend…just me and mommy and daddy-e-o this weekend while the older 3 went to Nana and Papa’s. And…what do I think about all this attention??? I’m cool with it;).”

“Cept…my momma keeps putting these crazy outfits on me every day that are SO not my style…but I’ll roll with it…”

“Oh no…did momma hear me say that?”

“Oh MAN! She did. Ok…she’s laughing at me…so—NO SWEATIN’ IT! Whew…close call…”

“Oh momma—for real. I’m okay with these outfits. But the hair butter you keep putting in my hair? Is that necessary?”

“Oh no…she really likes putting in the hair butter…just TEASIN’ momma! I love when you style my hair. I was so kidding!”

“For real mom! Love the outfits. Love the hair butter. Seriously. Raising my right hand–I, Isaac Temesgen, dig all the crazy stuff you do…”

“Now…stop all this craziness and give me some oatmeal!”

“Oh yeah! That’s what I’m talking about!”

“Have a great weekend…one thing is for sure. As a Young…I’m bound to!”

“Much love…from the crew and me!”

I love the pics and your new video! Thanks for sharing with those of us who do not know you but are so touched by your story. We have adopted two little guys (U.S. adoption) and I am now drawn to the country of Africa though I do not know if/when we will adopt again. I have been so “moved” by the videos and blogs of others who have adopted from this beautiful country. You have blessed me- thank you!
