I Am Lovin' Mondays!

Today was a newsy day for sure! We first got the size update for Bereket's clothes. It looks like he is fairly on track with kids his age. But, then we got the most heartwarming update on his little personality...

"Bereket is a sociable, affectionate and beautiful young man. Bereket absolutely loves to play soccer! However, he does need a new pair of sneakers so please plan on bringing these with you. He is looking forward to meeting his family and always talks about how he wants to be a pilot. He is very smart, gentle and sweet spirited."

Adorable! I wonder why he wants to be a pilot?? Because of his new daddy? So Cute!!

Next, we received tentative travel dates. I thought we would be looking at July 3-9, for some reason. But...we are leaving next week!!! We will need to be in Ethiopia by June 28th! I can't even get my head wrapped around it! Shower cancelled for now.

So far, we have packed his clothes, boxers, socks, toothbrush and of course...brand spankin' new sneakers! See ya soon, buddy!


  1. Wow! How awesome! AGCI must've gotten some embassy appointments for the fifth Monday. Whatever the case, you get to go earlier than you thought :)

  2. Yay Tina! I'm so happy for you! You will love Ethiopia! Have fun getting ready!
