Adventure begins...


We are just about to go to bed in DC. Our biggest mistake so far is that we forgot to pick up the stroller at the baggage claim. We will be trying to figure that out tomorrow, bright and early **smile**
The picture is with our luggage outside the Dulles terminal right before we got on the shuttle.

We had great flights coming this far and we spent some time with Tanya's cousins in VA. They fed us WELL! Crabcakes and Kabobs on the grill. Jaimee and I decided we need to get this really good cheese called boursin- Yum. It was goood!

We leave on a shuttle from our hotel at 6:30 a.m. to get to the airport, get through sec., find the stroller, check the baggage and be ready to board by 9:20ish. We are re-organizing how we carry stuff after our travel today. I'm so glad we get to stay overnight and regroup and then fly again tomorrow!

The emotions are really odd right now, because we are not at home with Kaylee, Isaac and Erin and we are not with the boys yet, so we are really missing everybody. It is great to have Jaimer with us! She is keeping us from being so overwhelmed and emotional. I am so thankful for the prayer support from home and our parents to watch the kids at home. It is really great to know that they are being loved on and kept active and probably a little spoiled.

I can't imagine how hard it is to keep the emotions in check- just reading your last two posts and I'm in tears! I will be praying for you!

Oh, we miss you and were so excited to see your picture. Now we can't wait to see it with Levi and Jesse in it. Thanks for going Jaime so you could be the great photographer!!! God laid on my heart that you will be okay in the midst of miss K,I & E ~ it's the labor pains that you don't get to experience w/ biological babies. It will help Levi and Jesse to feel even more like they've ALWAYS been yours. Hugs and love, The Handel's

Sherri and I know the emotions that you are both feeling right now. This morning, as Ahman was drinking his midnight snack, we were standing outside with Norman (the dog). Gazing up at the beautiful stars, I told Ahman that half-way around the world, two little boys were patiently waiting for their parents to arrive.

You will be in our thoughts and prayers during the trip to Addis and beyond.

Love in Christ,

Benjamin, Sherri, Mari, and Ahman
