Fw: We MADE IT!!!

THe flight was great, we had a couple hour delay after
sitting in the tarmack due to storms, but otherwise it
was great.

Took some time to get through the airport in Addis,
but that was to be expected. We are so excited and
happy to finally be here, it is almost surreal. '

The other families are awesome, we are going to have a
great week. THanks for your prayers, we will be back
soon with pictures!

So happy you made it. I almost can't believe your journey is almost over...or just beginning. I also almost can't believe that you will be my ambassador to my son in the next two days! THANK YOU! Such a special gift that you are giving all of us.

We are praying for health and safety for you!

Kiss my boy's cheeks! :)

Pete and Andrea,
I just logged on and saw your post from Ethiopia. Amazing how small the internet makes the world seem. How exciting; I can hardly wait to see ALL of you when you get back. I talked to both the kids today and they are pumped and seem to be having a blast with Dippy Grandma. You guys must be so pumped! See you soon.
