Friday night! My mom and Brian are packing and I am is going to be a long night. We received a long update on Mekebo today along with about ten new pics. He weighs almost 12 pounds. They say he is a playful boy with a great personality...we can't wait to bring him home!
I dropped off Eli today so that he can hang out with his Aunt Sheila, Uncle Dan, and cousins Jacob, Kaitlyn & G-man. Thank you SO much! Please give him lots of hugs and kisses from us.
So, off we go. We leave in the morning via O'Hare, Washington DC, Rome and then arrive Addis on Sunday night. Roy, we packed a lot of water!
Love you all tons. Please keep us in your prayers and we will give updates as possible.
