No way. No freaking way…

Posted in All ahead to adoption at 7:17 pm by Erin

WE ARE TRAVELING AT THE END OF THE MONTH!!!!  In 16 days, I will be in Ethiopia and will be meeting my son!  I can hardly believe it! 

Ms. IU called at about 9 p.m. and the first thing she said was "I’m sorry to call so late, I’ve mixed up my time zones."  Then she told us we were confirmed in the group on the 28th and I about lost it–I started shaking and could hardly talk.

We will be leaving two weeks from tomorrow.  As P would say, when he quotes SuperWhy, "Oh my peas!"  (And I can’t wait to tell him in the morning!)  I can’t think straight.  I need to make lists of lists now.
