Oh, what a week it has been!!! at some point, I will write about each day, but for now I will just recap:). We flew out of Laguardia to Dulles, and then to Addis last Friday morning, arrived in Addis about 8am (addis time, 1am ny time). We met our Alle that afternoon, around 2pm, and fell even more in love. She is so perfect, so precious. We spent the week with her, loving on her, and then on Tuesday, in front of a judge, we heard these precious words - "She is yours"! I am now the proud momma of 4!!!!!! Saying goodbye on wednesday was the hardest thing we have ever had to do. We are now praying for an incredibly quick embassy date - so that we can bring her home!!! She has 4 incredible special mothers (2 day, 2 night) that love on her constantly - we know that she is safe and loved. We still cannot post any pictures of her face or her name, but here are a few teasers for you!!!! Mommy and Daddy love you sweet girl - we cannot wait to bring you homeat our hotel waiting for the shuttle to take us to Laguardia

oh yes- we are finally in the single digits!!! only 9 more days until we are on a plane:) The packing has begun - the donation bins are full! I am making lists for my parents, and writing letters to the monkeys for every day that we are gone (21 letters, whew!). Please pray that the MOWA letter is there when we appear in court on Tuesday, the 17th, and that the judge will say the words "she is yours!".
