Micah's Friend Comes Home

Last Friday night Micah Shewit went to his first Homecoming since his own to welcome the Peters family home with their two precious sons from Ethiopia. What made this so wonderful was the fact that the oldest son the Peter's were bringing home was a friend of Micah's in Ethiopia at the Hannah's Hope Orphanage. It was surreal to see these two together again!
To give you a little background on the story.....soon after returning from Ethiopia with Micah, I received a comment on my blog from Fikadu's mom, Cris. She said that she had a picture of Micah with her oldest son and that they were friends. Needless to say, I was thrilled and so excited to have someone Micah knew be so close to where we could have play dates!!! (The last play date they had was in Ethiopia!)
Right before the Peter's left to go pick up Fikadu and Abush, we met them at an Ethiopian adoption support group. It was such a great moment! I couldn't help but squeal with excitement! I can't wait to get to know this wonderful family even better. They took a picture with Micah to take with them to show Fikadu who would be waiting in Tennessee to greet him when he got off the plane. ( Micah ate Jalepeno chips with ketchup waiting! He just likes everything spicy or hot even if his eyes are running!)
Micah Shewit was so excited to see his buddy walk up from the gate and positioned himself were Fikadu would see him first thing....and he did. Fikadu walked right over to Micah and they gave each other a big hug. Such a priceless moment!!! When we got home, Micah asked were Fikadu would be sleeping! We explained that he was going home to sleep with his forever family but we would see him soon. Micah just smiled a very knowing smile that he was happy for his friend.
I stand in amazement at how God does not miss even the smallest details in our life....Every Life Matters to Him! To think that these two little guys came together because of a tragedy in their life. They became friends in an orphanage and now they will grow up down the road from one another in America... Brought together this time by God's Love!

  1. It gives us so much joy to know these boys are going to continue to grow up together. I can't quite wrap my mind around the miracle that brings them together again, half way around the world. That picture you have from Hannah's Hope is one I took when we were there to bring our son home! They were both such little hams. :)

    P.S. I have a few other photos of Micah at HH if you are interested. Just shoot me an email. milreb@hotmail.com

  3. This is a great story. God does it all so perfectly--even in tragedy. Thrilled for these boys. We feel the same about Levi and Dosen. When life gets hard and they understand more and more of their stories, how important it will be for these boys to have each other.

    Thanks for your sweet comments, Missy. Blog land rocks.

  4. So many special blessing from God. To have a friend from HH so close by. I love how God works out those kinds of details. It was such a blessing to have you there at the airport to welcome us home.

    BTW, your little Micah is a star at HH. We showed the picture of us with your guy all around to the kids and they all loved it. They would run up to Chuck and want to see the picture time after time.
