Travel Booked!!!

Wow... chaos has stepped in a bit... it is crazy!!! This whole process (adoption) has taken years. I have felt like I have been living in a permanent holding pattern and now all of the sudden not only are things moving... but they are being fast tracked. Last week we found out that we made it into the earlier travel group. This means we will have our Embassy date on May 4th, we have to be in Ethiopia the Tuesday prior to travel to the original orphanage that cared for our son. And, because we are flying Emirates and they stop in Dubai before heading to Ethiopia we decided we should stay and explore a few days there first. Take all that into account and you will realize- we leave NEXT WEEK!!!!
My head is spinning but so far everything is coming together nicely (note- I am writing this before I have packed ANYTHING). We will see how nicely it is coming together after we pack up this weekend :)

Wow, Amber, it once seemed like it would never come and now it's NEXT WEEK! Crazy! Can't wait to hear about your trip and your new son.

Oh my gosh - I can't believe how crazy your life must be right now! And how insane that you're traveling next week!!! Will you have internet access while you're there? It would be fun to see pictures of your journey while you're there... I'm not sure if I can 'wait' until you get back ;) LOL

Have fun packing - what's the weather like there?
