Well, we picked him up today and brought him to the place we are staying. It was very emotional to see the nannies say good bye, their job must be so hard. Today I pray that these ladies would be blessed by God and know that the Lord is pleased with their incredible service. Thanks for all of your prayers and support.
Today we met Nati and he is awesome, he will fit right in with the rest of us. We got to spend about two hours playing and trying to coax a smile. The biggest hit for Nati was the cell phone Lucy packed for him. He knew how to use it and everything. It was very special to be with the other seven families as the spent their first moments with their new kids. We had to leave him at the transition home tonight, but tomorrow we get to bring him back to our room. We continue to pray for God to lead our journey, He has been so good. Goodbye for now.
We landed about 2 hours ago. We are safe and sound at the Yasabi guest house. We are slowly meeting the other families on the trip. ET is chilly. Well that is about it for now. Remembering to leave the expectations and let God take us on this journey. To God be the glory!
Well we just finished our time in Dubai. It was fun and hotttttttt! Like 105. we did some fun stuff, including a city tour and a desert safari. We are just about to board our flight to Ethiopia. Excitement is very high. Pray for our hearts to be centered on the Lord and to lose our expectations of what the next week might or might not be like. Much love to you all! Next stop Africa.
So, the first leg of the journey is in the books. We landed about an hour ago in Dubai. The flight was long, but pretty good. I think I watched six movies. They served a lot of food and neither of us slept very much. We are presently waiting for a shuttle to our hotel. We are hoping for an early check-in. Talk to everyone later.
We are in the car headed toward NYC for the night. Flying out in the morning. Packing was an adventure, we are hoping for a little grace from the airline. Anyway, we are excited to finally be taking these steps toward our son. We will try to keep updating as long as we have access to a signal.
William and Amy have been married for almost 10 years. They have three children Sam, Georgia, and Lucy and are anxiously awaiting their fourth who currently resides somewhere in Ethiopia. They have no pets, nor will they ever again. (So says William)
