WE...

are leaving on Tuesday. There was an opening in an earlier group. We leave Tuesday, as in the day after Monday, which is just after this weekend.

I would love to write something, but all I can concentrate on are things like finding a teether, and counting diapers, and buying Meaza a ten dollar pink watch with hearts on it.

We are coming back on the 15th, or the 22nd. To be determined. We still have her tb test to get out of the way. We are going early anyway. We want to see them.

We can't wait.

Enough already.

It is time.

  13. WOW!
    Yes. It IS time. Go to those beautiful children of yours.

    I'm sitting here and being VERY bossed around to dip Judah's pita pieces into hummus at a consistent rate (he likes the way I dip better, I believe it's because I get more hummus per bite than he does) and I'm all teary because m&m need you to help them dip their pita so they get an adequate amount of hummus. Yup, now.

    Will think of you all the entire time.

  35. You have no idea who I am, but I have been reading your blog off and on for the last year (my sister has a link to it from hers - she and her husband also adopted two beautiful boys from Ethiopia) - and I just wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS! The joy they will bring to your life (and all those who love you) will be immeasurable. I am so happy for you two - You will be wonderful parents. I look forward to hearing about all the joys and laughs you have from parenting!
