Okay, well this is the first day we have a chance at internet - because we drove 20 minutes to the Hilton where we're also enjoying a nice meal.
We're in Ethiopia and loving it. Judah is absolutely beautiful and we love, love, love him. THe first day he was quiet and was content in our laps. The next time we saw a smile. Then today, he laughed and laughed when I tickled him. It's wonderful getting to know him slowly. Tomorrow we take custody of Judah so we have him 24/7 after that. Tommorrow we also go to the embassy where we're praying they'll give us his passport so we can go home.
We've been to traditional meals and tribal dances (this white girl can't dance but I tried), and saw the countryside. We traveled 6 hours to Durame and got to meet Judah's birthmother. Very emotional and I'm thankful to Ethiopia and Holt for making that happen for us.
It's warm here. Sometimes there's power, sometimes there's not. No toilet paper in the toilet, the water is slightly colored when it comes out of the faucet, etc. But the people are beautiful and we're so thankful for the time we're spending here. With that said, we're ready to get home too!
Please share with others. Keep praying. Thanks!!!
