Update From Washington D.C.

Kevin Here -making my debut at blogging!!

We have made it to Washington and have about four hours left to kill before we take off to Rome. Stacie and I are both so excited that we can hardly sit still. By this time tomorrow we will have our son in our arms!!
We had a close call fitting all of the luggage into the car. We somehow pulled it off though.
This is right after we checked our bags and checked in for our flight to D.C.

This is a picture of the "Cloud Nine" lounge that we are hanging in. This has been a nice suprise because we are away from the noise and traffic of the terminal and they have all kinds of complimentary food and beverages.

Stacie reading.....imagine that.

I always let Stacie do all the blogging, but I just wanted to post today and thank everyone who has been following our journey. I read all the comments, and I am so greatful for all of your support and love you have shown us along the way.

Thanks again and I am sure Stacie will be updating soon.

    wowowow All I can say is Praise God! I know full well how you feel about the people and the places you saw in Addis Ababa. I was able to go and help get HOH started prior to the families arriving. Your precious son is a gift from God, no doubt! Many blessing to you all!
