Full steam ahead

We are now confirmed for a June 17 Embassy date. We need to be in Ethiopia on Sunday, June 13 and will be meeting our son on Monday, June 14 it looks like. We are now booking our flight and accommodations.

I'm actually not stressed either. I'm able to finish work tomorrow, a day early. I was afraid this week would be brutal at work, but it's been so smooth. We are quickly getting through our big checklist of stuff before we travel. It feels good to cross stuff off of our list.

Baby shopping was well...intimidating. We definitely had some snags on whether we needed stuff, what kind of stuff, etc. We must have looked really lost at Babies R Us because we had about every employee in the store ask us if we needed help. We got most stuff, but really got stuck on the stroller/car seat situation. So, had to push that one to another day.

All in all, I think things are coming along nicely and it's the most amazing feeling to actually have a date....THE LAST DATE we will wait on finally confirmed!


  1. Oh, Yes!!! Let me know what we can do to help. And keep us posted about your plans for visitors once you're back. So excited for you two!

  2. Morgan and i reading this for the first time, I am so excited for you! I can only imagine how you feel right now, I bet your falling asleep dreaming of holding lil Gadesis in you arms. we love you.

  3. We are so excited to see our newest member of our family. Beth loves babies so much. She may not want to put him down. I can't wait to see him as I know you are. We remember the feeling of having to wait to see our children. It takes so long, but once you have them in your arms, time stands still and all that waiting was worth it.
    Love to you both,
    Aunt Fawn and Uncle Jon and Hannah, Seth, Beth
