Here we go.
We leave tomorrow to go get our boy. I am happy tonight. Manny's excitement is palpable. He is thoroughly into the whole thing. The train ride to Washington, staying at our friend's house tomorrow night, the flight to Addis (there is no human being who loves flying more than this guy, I swear that is bizarre to me), the ride to our guest house, and seeing his brother again. He helped me pack tonight, took his bath, and chose toys and clothes for his brother. I did a last minute Target run and got a few things. The other day I put all the beads that people have given to me over the years into a macrame necklace. My first macrame necklace ever and I love it. I will wear it to Ethiopia. I wanted to choose a name for the quilt raffle, but time ran short this week. I promise to do it when we return. With our boys. Keep me in your thoughts. I am afraid of that flight home. I'm afraid of a few things, but more than anything I am contentedly at peace. Thank you and thank you for all the kind wishes and thoughts. Thank you for holding me up on this journey to my son. I carry each of you in macrame around my neck in Ethiopia.
