We are off! Addis Ababa here we come, but more importantly Meseret and Kamise here we come. We fly via Houston, Texas and Frankfurt, Germany today. If all goes as planned, we are looking forward to about 24 hours in flight. Yuck. Sunday morning we will meet Meseret and Kamise for the first time.
Monday, the day we've been awaiting for a year, will find us in court. Then as quickly as it all began, we head back to Orlando on Tuesday night, sadly without our girls. We will wait for the US Embassy to approve our case and issue an Embassy date in Ethiopia, for which we'll return and immigrate the girls back to the USA with us. Yahoo.
In the next few days, I am thinking we will have an increase in blog entries. Thankfully, we have a beautiful family of friends that are making this journey with us as they share their resources, thoughts and prayers for us and the girls. Though internet access is limited and the connection poor in Addis, we will do what is possible to share about this part of our adventure.
