In Ethiopia

Well, we made it & are settling into the guest house...which is
wonderful & right in the city. At this moment, we are waiting for
another family (Sapps) to arrive.
For the past two days we've just hung out and soaked in the culture!!
This morning our friend, Robel, took us to an international church
here in Addis -- there were people from ALL over the world! Some
visiting, and many who have made Ethiopia their home (and I can see
why). I love experiencing other cultures...it always reminds me of
how we who live in the US often forget the art of "living".
Tomorrow we meet Micah and spend the afternoon with him. I'm so
nervous...how will he respond to us?...will I know what to
do? Indescribable!!
He will stay at the transition home for the last time tomorrow night,
and then remain with us from Tuesday on!!
Even in our nervousness, we are acutely aware of God's goodness and are
overwhelmed with joy beyond words!!

Thank you for your many prayers & recent encouragement! May God richly
bless your spiritual investment into our lives, and Micah Yosep's!!

We are praying for you and Micah. Lord, may the connection be instant and may he know fully in his little spirit that these are his parents sent from you to cuddle him up and love him for the rest of his life.
Blessings to you guys and may you cherish every moment.

Alisa! Can you email me any advice for traveling. We leave today, but we have a layover in DC. It was really cool to read your blog and to get a glimpse of what awaits us as we journey through the end of the beginning of this adoption adventure. God keep you and bless you family.
