The home stretch...

This adoption is feeling more and more real with each passing day. We leave for Ethiopia in just a few days and there is lots to do before our flight leaves. Our friends and family have all been so kind and generous. Thankfully, we have everything we need to start out life with Shurabe. I am really looking forward to the next couple of weeks. Just meeting our daughter is reason enough but we will also find out this week the gender of our baby. Brian is blessed to be able to take some paternity leave and so the whole family will be home to bond with Shurabe. Brian is such a great husband and dad that we all look forward to spending time at home with him. I'm really excited to see how Shurabe reacts to him. I have a feeling they will have a very special relationship. Hopefully next post I will have some photos.

Hi my name is Audrey and I was just in Ethiopia a couple of weeks ago. I had the priviledge of meeting your little girl at the AWA transition home. I am so happy for your family and I know that you and she will be very very blessed. She is precious and beautiful and i'm so glad that she's going home. thanks for sharing your girl with me!
