Booked!

Our flights are booked and we leave in NINE DAYS! We're all set to depart NY on Sunday, June 1st and arrive in Dubai on Monday morning. We're going to spend the day/night in Dubai and then take off for Addis Ababa on Tuesday morning to meet our son. We'll be in Addis for an entire week (not returning to NY until the next Tuesday) so should have plenty of time to explore the city where our son was born and love, feed, and play with all of the children at HOH. The next nine days will definitely not go by quick enough, but that's ok, we're leaving in nine days! I haven't packed for any trip we've ever gone on earlier than the night before our flight, but somehow I think this one will be different...

Can you feel my hugs and smiles?! At least 3 of the days will be filled with Janelle helping you organize (though it sounds like you've got it all in place!) so that only leaves 6 days to dream about holding your son (my grandson!) before the reality of having him in your arms takes place. My love, thoughts and prayers are with you. Enjoy each and every day - your life is about to change forever, and it will be fabulous!

I can't believe you're really leaving in 9 days! You'll have to hug and kiss our little boy for us. We'll be there soon!
