En Route to our Babies!

We arrived this (Saturday) evening in Dubai, and we're all headed to bed right now! The flight was much easier this go-round, and it is already so much fun having our Moms travel with us on this trip!

Sunday, one of my high school friends who lives here is going to be our city tour guide (Thanks, Lisa!). Our plan is to tour a mosque, do a city bus tour, visit the Ski Dubai mall, and see the Bellagio-style fountains at the Burj Khalifa in the evening. It should be a very full day. The weather forecast is sunny with a high of 103 and a low of 93 degrees! Toasty!

Monday morning, we'll fly to Addis Ababa and be reunited with our sons that very day! We're so excited to see them again and to have them in our arms!

We'd appreciate your prayers for safe travels, good health, and an easy transition into becoming a family of four!

So exciting. We were there about this time 2 years ago and HOT doesn't even do it justice. :) Can't wait to see new pics.

So exciting for you to be on your
2nd trip already!! What a blessing to have both grandma's with you! The extra hands will be a big help. Can't wait to see you at home with your new babies!

God Bless.

Hi there, My friend Meggan sent me the pics you took and a little girl we are trying to adopt was in the pictures. She was standing behind you wearing a blue shirt. I am wondering if you have any information about her. What she was like? If she was still there when you left? We are hearing some conflicting information about her and we are hoping for some clarification soon, but in the meantime we are grasping at straws. I would love to talk to you. My email is jtnardi1@msn.com and my number is 760-519-5532
Thank so much, Dana Mikel

Oh, my goodness!!!!! What a lovely family you are. I hope your travels are going well. We also stayed at the Bejoe and had Solomon as our driver and your photos brought back fond memories of all the lovely people we met while we were there.

We've been thinking about you all week, hoping all has been going as smoothly as possible. How wonderful that you could take both mothers. You're lucky to have that kind of relationship with them, and I'm sure the extra hands have helped! We'll be sending good thoughts for a safe, easy as possible trip home. Can't wait to hear about your trip. Zoe
