Texts from Bethany at 11:50 P.M., Monday night our time (Tuesday morning in Ethiopia):

"Had an amazing trip to Durame - enjoyed the beautiful countryside. Met Aynalem's birthmother - a meeting we will forever treasure in our hearts. We took custody of Aynalem yesterday and she did great sleeping in our hotel room last night. Now we are playing with dolls and the magnadoodle before heading to the US embassy for our interview to get Aynalem's visa to enter the US! We are feeling anxious to get home now and have our whole family together! =)"
