Going to Ethiopia!

Monday: Find out we passed court
Tuesday: Start to look at flights, see if we can travel a bit in country; Vivi gets a high fever
Wednesday: Buy tickets; Maya gets high fever
Thursday: Crazily organize donations, kids' activities, do laundry, Tonito gets a high fever (V and M are better)
Friday: 7am leave for the airport!!!
I am so overwhelmed and exhausted from nights taking care of the kids and trying to plan everything... but now it's almost here... We have been waiting for so long to meet our little guy and it is happening so soon!!! For the first week we will not have internet because we will be very rural. I will post pictures and adventures once we are back in Addis Ababa! Please keep us in your prayers!!

I'm just catching up now, a few weeks late, and can't believe you found out about court on a Monday, left on a Friday, and nursed sick kids in between! Amazing. So glad it all worked out great and that you had such an incredible time.
