Mark, Summer and I leave to tomorrow to head to Ethiopia!! We are so excited, nervous and full of joy!!! I just might not sleep a wink tonight. I just can not wait to see, hold, and love on my little boy!! It will be so amazing. It has been a long 2 year wait and it is finally about to come true.
We will not get to see him until Friday April 6! We will fly to Mekele where is orphanage is at. We will spend the whole day in Mekele, but not the whole day with our son. We will see him, then get some lunch, go to some museums, and back to see him one last time. That will be so sad to say good bye to him and then have to wait for 2 or 3 months to go back for him. It will be sad for our daughter too who is going to "meet" her little brother. She will not want to leave him there, but we have no choice. He is loved by his nannies. They are taking great care of him. I just want him home with us- so we can be a family for four soon.
We will go sightseeing, and going to the market while we are there. I really don't know what days we are doing what. I hope I can post while we are there. So we will see.
Then on Monday April 9 is our court date!!! Please everyone pray that we will pass while we are in Ethiopia!! This would help us out so much. It would make it easier for us to go back to our son. Then if we do pass I can post pictures of us being a family of four!!!! I so want to show everyone his precious face..
I love our little boy so much!! I am so thankful that the Lord is blessing us with another child. I am so thankful that He has allowed for us to adopt!! I am thankful that we are able to take our daughter with us on both trips. I am thankful that we are about to meet our son. God is so good!!!
Please keep praying for us.
