T Minus 3 Days!

Dear R and B,

Ever since we found out that we "passed" phase one of the court process, life has kicked into high gear, and we have been BUSY getting ready to fly around the world to appear in court next week in Ethiopia.

We'll arrive in Addis Ababa on Sunday, and on Monday we'll get to meet YOU! We've been told that we'll have 2 or 3 one-hour meetings with the two of you. The first two will be on Monday and Tuesday, and the possible third one will be on Friday.

Your Dad and I are beside ourselves with joy that we get to meet you and hold you in just six days!

Our court date is Aug. 4th, and if all goes well, this is the day that a judge will interview us and declare that our adoption of you boys is finalized and legal. My birthday will be the next day, and I can't think of a better gift than getting to wake up that morning knowing that I'm your MOM!

See you soon!

Words cannot express the joy I KNOW you two are feeling right now and yet nervous at the same time.

We were exactly where you are 4.5 years ago and knowing we were going to meet our 4 month old baby boy was exciting and nerve racking at the same time!

May God bless and keep you safe during this exciting time! Post pictures as soon as those babies are "officially" what we know they ALREADY ARE in your hearts - YOUR BABIES!!!!
