We're off!

All our bags are packed we're ready to go...we will leave for the airport in about an hour and I feel like there are a million little things that we are forgeting....I can't think of them now, so oh well! My brain has turned to mush from all of the packing and repacking and condensing and repacking.
I am going to TRY to post some pics and blog while we are in Ethiopia, but I hear that there all LOTS of scheduled power outages these days, due to the draught over there, so keep your expectations low and when I actualy can do it- it will be a glorious suprise! I am going to try my hardest though, because I want the blog to be a document of our journey to our sweet son and Ethiopia, and I know if I don't write it all down as it happens, it may never happen and I will forget so much.
So, pray that our flights are uneventful and go by quickly and we can go meet Malak soon!!!!!! My heart is fluttery just thinking of it!!
Love to you all!

Were you about to break out singing "leavin on a jet plane"? That's how I read the first line anyway...and I'm still singing it.

Hope you guys have safe travels! I can't wait to hear all about it and get some travel tips from you.

Next time I see you, you'll have Malak!! YAY!!!

Kiss and hug our baby boy for us.
