We are going to get our kiddos!

This whole process has been about miracles.

Watching them happen...
identifying them as I see them...
being in awe that I get to be the recipient of the blessings.

So, of course the end of the waiting would be no different!

It's a long story, and some details are personal,
but suffice it to say...
we will be leaving for Ethiopia on
We land on Easter Sunday!

I've got a LOT to do
in the next...

I'm working on things today...
but mostly...
I'm just so thankful
that this part can finally be over!!

We ARE coming, sweet kiddos!!
