Caleb is such a thinker. He's been trying to wrap his brain around this adoption stuff. We checked out books from the library about Ethiopia and he's been reading them for weeks. The other day Michael was reading one of them and somehow a conversation ensued about how some Ethiopians live in Michigan....Fastforward to days later, Caleb says to me "Mommy, guess what? We don't have to wait to get our baby, because there are Ethiopia people in Michigan." The picture he drew above says "Ethiopia is ahead of Michigan." Translation of thought--we are close enough to go to Ethiopia now.
Another funny thing... Michael has a wad of cash from his soccer kids (they owed him $ for socks). Caleb saw him pull a $20 out of the envelop and said "Daddy, you can't use that we need it for our adoption." I hope we aren't turning him into a crazy person:)
I constantly watch the wheels turning as he wrestles with understanding this process, I'm not too far ahead of him in understanding all the adoption intricacies.
