After a long few days wondering about whether or not we would be able to travel we got on the plane and trusted that God would work it out. He did and we met our kids for the first time. We spent the week getting to know each other and finishing up the visa paperwork. The 4 of us got on a plane ready for a long flight. We had a good time in Ethiopia, everything worked out as planned. There were a few small snaggs in the paperwork that were able to be fixed before they caused any real issues. Big thanks to everyone who had a direct hand in getting everything ready, and to everyone who sent prayer up for us. A few pictures.

on towards a family of 5

On Friday Adam and I begin the long journey to arrive in Addis to meet A & L. We are leaving D with gramma and nana. I am in the panic/worried/nervous/excited/anxious/every other emotion you can feel before going to meet your children mode. Too many things to do and it seems like the days/hours are going by fast at sometimes and slow at others. I've already cried twice(short cries) about leaving my baby bear for so long. I can't go a day without him, let alone 10 days. I sure that he will grow leaps and bounds while we are gone. Please pray that he will cope and adjust to the HUGE change that is about to happen in his life.

We covet your prayers while we are gone, especially for our health. I do not want a repeat of what happened last time.
Well, I'll leave you with a sneak peak of our precious ones.
