Well the time has come where we leave our home to drop off the kids. To say I have knots in my stomach does not describe how I feel. I have never left my children for more than 1 night. This is HUGE for me.

We leave to go to my home town and then we'll spend a night at friends of ours who will be taking us to the airport.

I feel beyond excited to meet my little girl. I get shivers just thinking about holding her in a few days. WOW! I never thought the day would come.

I would really love for everyone who visits my blog while we're gone, to leave a welcome note to Emmy and then I will print it and scrapbook it for her. I am doing a big scrapbook of our experience for her.... I look forward to coming home and seeing the comments. Take Care and God bless you.


    I just happened to do a search to see if you had a blog and found it today. I am so excited for you that you will soon hold your little girl. I will be praying for you. "the baby that grew in my heart I now touch"

    Emmy! We've had your picture on our fridge for so long and we can't wait to meet you in person! Your beautiful eyes and shy smile greet us each time I'm in the kitchen. I was so blessed to help your mommy make you new blankets to cuddle in. (we snuggled them a bit to test them out, imagining you in them.) Welcome home sweetie. You are so loved just because you are you.

You have been loved for so long by so many people. We rejoice that you are in their arms. You are a miracle- a gift made perfectly and wonderfully by God.

    Welcome home litte Emmy! We can't wait to meet you! We've thought of you many times when we see your picture on our fridge. We've been praying that Jesus will hold you close and calm your fears as you meet your new parents and travel across the world to your new home.
    Soon we will bring home our little boy from Ethiopia and the two of you will get to play together again!

    I got to see you come down the stairs with your Mommy and Daddy today at the Winnipeg airport. You were all snuggled against your Mommy. You looked cozy and beautiful and safe with her. You are very loved! Your sisters and brother were very excited to meet you...they were waiting for you and talking about you before you arrived.
    There have been lots of people talking to Jesus about you and praying you'd make it safely into your Mommy and Daddy's arms. I'm so happy you are finally home with them!
    We love you Emebet and Family!
    Looking forward to getting to know you more.
    Juli, Lance, Halli, Ashyr and one day 2 more from Ethiopia:)
