I’ve got diapers comin’ out my ears

Thanks to some careful planning by my lovely shower hostesses
and the overwhelming generosity of many, many people,
we will be traveling with 1,200 diapers.
1,200 diapers to donate to the care center that has been loving our boy for the past 8.5 months.

And lets not forget about the 4 cans of formula, 8 bottles of hand sanitizer, 400 wipes, 10 pairs of shoes, 2 bibs, and 1 tub of baby clothes that we also get to pass along.
We are so, so thankful to all of you who have enabled us to bless the care center that has gone above and beyond to provide excellent care for our baby.

I continue to be overwhelmed. Seriously. God has surrounded us by such wonderful people.
Oh, and in case you forgot, we leave for Ethiopia in 3 days.

Court Day
Sometime while you are sawing logs tonight, we'll be going to court. We will stand in front of the judge and promise to take good care of our boy for the rest of his life. So, as you drift off to sleep tonight, know that good things will be happening in Ethiopia while you snooze. And say a little prayer for that letter if you think about it.
A little funny for you
All of the travel planning and packing and dreaming about my boy has been a little distracting. In fact, I may or may not have unloaded an entire dishwasher of dirty dishes into my cupboard on Wednesday. And the other day, I definitely stepped into the shower with my underwear on. I can't wait to have my brain back.
