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!
