The Doust family were a family of five, until last November. I include Penny, their Saluki, in this count.
Last November, a momentous event occurred in their lives which would change their course forever more. Susannah. This vibrant, warm-hearted family started their personal journey of adoption from their home in Dubai. Like all adoptive parents soon experience, the process involved a high degree of commitment, patience and emotional cost. Last November, they received the long awaited news that they could go to Addis Abba, to bring their daughter home.
Incidentally, this time two year ago, we were living in Kenya with our son Munro. We had the pleasure of making a trip to Ethiopia - a country rich in history. Read the post here.
Our paths cross in January. They invited me to document a moment in their lives. I'm delighted to share this moment with you, my friends.
