They Made It!

After a very troublesome journey that included all sorts of mechanical problems, engine issues, and computer failures (and hence, a missed flight to Ethiopia!), Jennifer and Jody made it to Addis and picked up sweet Abraham today at 1pm local time.

She says he is sweet and tiny and puts himself to sleep by sucking his thumb:) 2 wet diapers and no poopies (yet.) He smiles all the time, and when Jennifer was on the phone with her sister, Abey just babbled the whole time!

Can you believe I will meet him in just 6 short days? Ahhhhh! I will actually get to meet Abey Sunday night- before I get my sweet girl! But we plan to remedy that by hanging out with Jennifer/Jody/Abey, Meredith/Ryan/Simon, and whoever else wants to on Monday night. I think Anna will love playing with the boys, and I know Abigail will love it! A week from today. One week until my Anna is in my arms.

Wow.
