Update from Ethiopia

Crazy busy here getting ready, but just wanted to pop on and say that we received an update today from our program director, Sharon, who is in Ethiopia (she arrived on Tuesday). She says that Micah Yabsira is, and I quote, "soooo cute" ;) and that he is a really good baby - not fussy at all. (Hopefully that stays the same when we get there :) And she said that the nannies are always holding him and he barely cries. CUTIE!! I can't wait to get there and hold him and kiss him!!!

Sharon also mentioned that the power goes out frequently in the area of Addis Ababa that the House of Hope is in. We're hoping to be able to post from Addis, but we may have to hit up the internet cafes....

more later!


  1. I'm so excited for you all! You will be in my prayers as you travel! Have a great trip!

  2. I've said it a million times already, but I have to shout out again.."I can't wait to see a pic of you holding your precious gorgeous boy!!!!"

    After tonight and Friday night, there will be no more nights in your home without him...that is so amazing! the dream of holding your child is almost here. It gives me goosebumps for you!

    we're sending our love and wishes for smoothe travels and magic moments that are sure to be stamped in your hearts and minds forever!
