News Flash!!!!!

Our case cleared embassy this morning!!!   The aunt arrived and we have moved on to the next step which is to get a visa appointment.  This will not pose an issue at all.  As I have stated before, we are having our boys escorted to the US.  The agency rep from our adoption agency will be the escort.  According to her, she will not be able to leave Ethiopia with our boys until May 31.  This will put their arrival date somewhere between June 1st and June 2nd.  I was actually hoping that they would come earlier, but honestly, I am ecstatic that they will be coming in the next 10 days.

I can't wait to see them for the very first time and my husband can not wait to see them again.  Our children have made years and years of plans with their new brothers  It will be like watching the birth of our children....except this time I won't be naked and in sheet gripping pain.  I am sure you are all breathing a sigh of relief on this one.....this scene would not bode well in an airport and would land most witnesses in therapy and me in the slammer.

As soon as I know the dates of their arrival, I will let you know.  And to all my local friends, it would bring joy to my heart to see you at the airport as we wait for our boys.  I really want them to see how anticipated and wanted they are.  It would mean a lot to our family as well.  All of you have been so encouraging with support financially and through your friendship and prayers.  This is going to be an amazing day for our whole family!

I think I now officially need a pair of Depends.


  1. So exciting! This is awesome news :)

  2. Oh Thea, i would love to be at the airport but if it truly is that weekend then i'll be in another airport visiting my mom for her 75th birthday. I hope you get a large turnout to show the boys how much they're WANTED and CELEBRATED!!!

  3. Yay!!!! This is so wonderful to read! I am SO excited for you. I wish I didn't live SO far away! I would love to be there to help welcome your boys home! Why does California have to be SO FAR WEST!! Ugh!
