counting the days

Well it's 8 days and 15 hours until the kids will officially be ours. I guess in Ethiopian time, it's less than that... That's amazing to us. It's so difficult hearing that some of the kids in the orphanage became sick and died a few weeks ago. It's been very emotional for us to have to leave them there. My heart aches for those children, and for the parents to whom they were promised. I'm sure it will be even harder to wait after we know that they are ours. We are looking to travel the week of January 20-31st. We have found really great airfare for that time, and hope to have them pinned down to allow us to go ahead and make those reservations soon. We are beyond ready to go get them. Please continue to pray for their health and wellbeing, as well as for us to make our reservations soon. This waiting is killing us.
