Can’t believe

it’s today. At the Quad City International Airport waiting for our first flight to Detroit. Said our tearful goodbyes to our babies. It was tearful indeed because it was a rough night.

We’re thinking the kids ate/drank something that didn’t sit well and it was about a billion degrees outside and inside our house (no air conditioning remember) and so Trysten threw up all night last night. Dailah woke up and also threw up. They all seem to be better now but it’s hard leaving them like that.

But it’s for a good reason. Remember the reason?

You ready for it?

It’s for these two.

Tomas (toe-mas) age 6.

and Binyam (Bin-yum) age 3.

We will meet them in a few short days.

Until then, a day and a half of flights for my beloved and me.

Pray for the whole deal, including my babes who aren’t quite at par.

I told you they were cute did I not? 🙂

  3. PRAYING PRAYING AND MORE PRAYING!!!! Cute does not even describe it. Not even close!! They are ADORABLE!!! Have a wonderful time! If you remember and have a hug to spare, give Yabyu a hug for me!

  4. They are BEAUTIFUL and blessed and will be a huge blessing. I know it has been said already, but Tomas looks a lot like Tariku. Adorable. Congrats and I pray you have safe travels and a smooth transition with good attachment. 🙂

  5. They are darling-Praying for healthy and safe travel and easy adjustments for everyone. You and your crew (both home and away) are in my thoughts

  6. Tears of joy and happiness and I don't even know you… but I have been following your blog and gasped outloud when I saw your beautiful sons. Safe travels and all the best!-Heather in NHMom to two bio daughters and an adopted son….

  7. Sooooo, sooooo, soooo cute!! And I still can't get over how much they remind me of Tariku!! I can't wait to hear about your trip and pictures of you all united at last. Hugs & safe travels.xoxoxo,Chandra

  8. Oh gosh, they are just beautiful. Congratulations, and I hope the trip goes well. I've been reading your blog for years and this might be my first comment, so…here I am, de-lurking! So excited for you guys, and can't wait for them to be home for good.

  9. This is going to sound weird. My friend sent me a link to your blog because we are also adopting a 3 year old boy from Ethiopia and leave next week. His name is – Binyam! Too funny because in Amharic, they usually spell it Biniyam, but where our son is from, it's Binyam. When you get back, can you e-mail me? I'd love to see if our kids are from the same region of Ethiopia (near Awassa?) Hope you have a wonderful trip!Tera

I LOVE hearing from you!
