We made it this far. We are in DC. We get up at 5am to head out again. Tom and zac just left to get their i think 4th or 5th big meal since we left. I have finally calmed down a bit. The flights were really short. The waiting in the airports was a tad bit longer. I think its all starting to really sink in and we are really wondering how we are going to do this airport thing with 2 little ones. There were 2 or 3 kids on the last flight that were just screaming.. I am just trying to imagine a 20 hr flight with 30 or 40 of them. WOW.
Thank you all for the awesome comments it cheers us and gives us so much encouragement.
We love you all.

We will be one again tomorrow but will be in Ethiopia.. ya hoo...

luv you all.

Love all of you

So is this really all happening???? I feel like I am watching myself in a movie. Can something this wonderful actually be happening to our family? I am actually going to be holding my baby boys in my arms in 3 days.
Today was my last day of work for 2 months. I am going to miss my friends from work so much in the next few months. They have been so much support. Who needs to pay for therapy?? I got it for free everyday. For all of you co-workers reading this I want you to know I love you all so much and you have all been angels sent by God to get me through this. You have made the happy times 10 times better and got me thru the rough times. I adore you guys and I am so truly blessed. HUGE SHOUT OUT TO MY HUMANA HOMEGIRLS and BOYS too!!!!

Okay i dont think i ever said homegirls before i my life.. yikes..

I posted the picture of the map my friend vicki made for us at the shower. It was the coolest thing. We all put a tack on where we came from or our ancestors. I will keep this map forever.
I just loved it.

Special hello to my Aunt Mary and my Cousin Kim. I LOVE YOU GUYS!!

Packing and more packing oh and dont forget packing!!!

I have never had to pack for 5 before. God Bless all of you out there that have.
Next week this time we will be driving back from Hosanna Ethiopia. I will probably
be still in the middle of a major UGLY cry from the entire experience.

The house is as ready as its ever going to be for our 2 miracles.
We packed 2.5 pieces of luggage with all donations. The rest is for the 5 of us.
I will be adding photos of that once we are done packing. That should a sight to see.
The luggage completely fills the babies room right now I have no idea how we will
ever fit that into a vehicle. I suggested we rent a Uhaul to get us to and from the airport.

Tom and Zac are relaxed and ready to go. I on the other hand have my undies and a bundle
havent slept in days. Having minor panic attacks every few hours or so. My mom came over today and probably saved tom and zacs lives. Thanks mom!!! she helped me pack and organize had me do some deep breathing and I am ready to go : )

Here is the most recent photos i have of the boys. Lucas looks like a angelic little doll and Jackson well you can see by that grin he is going to give me a run for my money :)
