Well, I can't believe it but we will leaving our house for the airport in just under 18 hours! Yes, that will be 3:45am for those doing the math :) EARLY! From what other families have experienced, we know it is highly unlikely we will have internet connection long enough to post anything from Ethiopia. However, we are hoping to stay in contact with our friends (aka our Pastor and his wife) through phone calls, and Melissa is going to post anything pertinent to this blog for me. So hooray for updates!
So, I finally got the suitcases packed... yes, there are A LOT of them. The awesome thing is that at least 50% of the luggage space is entirely donations for the care center - a huge THANK YOU to everyone who donated items or gave money to us financially (we were able to purchase a number of needed items with that money). The final thing I would like to leave you with is a video/photo montage of our adoption journey up to this point. If you've never seen a picture of Mikayla Aynalem... here's your sneak peak :) Thank you all for sharing the journey with us, what an adventure this has been... and it's truly only just beginning.
