Something amazing happened last Friday. I got an email from our Director saying that we had cleared the Embassy and we could go pick up our daughter! After I got done freaking out I called Tommy to share the news. Neither of us expected this news at all. The Embassy has been taking a very long time to clear cases. We had only been submitted 1 week - did you hear me...ONE WEEK!! GOD IS GOOD :)
Our US Embassy appointment is Tuesday Aug 14th. This is where our lawyer in Ethiopia will go sign some papers on our behalf. We will be leaving on Saturday Aug 18th to Washington and will hop on a flight to Ethiopia on the 19th. With such short notice, booking flights has been a nightmare but in the grand scheme of things we don't really care. WE CAN'T WAIT TO HOLD OUR DAUGHTER AGAIN - THIS TIME FOREVER!!
I'll post more news at it comes in and some details about the "Welcome Home" party we plan to have at the Nashville aiport when we land. I can't thank everyone enough for their love and support throughout this process.
Here's a new picture we got this past weekend. Hold on Sanai, Mommy and Daddy are coming :)
