Uncle Dave Sounds Pretty Good.

My brother and his wife found out early this morning that they had cleared all the hurdles to become proud adoptive parents of an Ethiopian baby. I'm so happy for them, because this has been a long and trying process for both of them.

So now the reality that one of the whitest families in one of the whitest states in America is bringing home a baby that's...not very white. As if that's not ironic enough, from the pictures I've seen, little baby Eli appears to have straighter hair than anybody in my family. Go figure. He's a cute kid, and he's healthy, and he looks like the kind of kid who's really going to like hanging out with his uncle Dave.

I'll post more, and include pictures when I can, but for now it's a big congratulations for John Mark and Amanda!
