And We're Off ... to Ethiopia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow - the day is finally here!  Our bags are packed and we are ready.  Today was an absolute whirlwind of last minute details - but we are ready ... more than ready ... to meet our sons!  We will be leaving Mpls tomorrow (Thursday) morning (HAPPY THANKSGIVING YA'LL!!) and overnighting in Washington DC.  Then first thing Friday morning, we fly to Ethiopia ... to our sons!
To all the other waiting AWAA families - we will take lots of pictures of your kiddos and we will love and hug on each and every one of the kids at the Transition Home - and tell them what loving parents they have waiting to come for them!
To dear friends and family - thank you so much for your love and support during this entire journey.  We can't wait for you to meet the boys when we return home. 
I will blog as often as possible and please keep our family in your prayers while we travel.  with love, Karen
