Please pray for us, specifically:
*safe driving to D.C today (spending the night with John's brother)
*safe flights tomorrow (plane takes off at 7pm from D.C and arrives in Germany Friday morning - then we take off again at noon and arrive in Ethiopia Friday evening around 8pm)
*a wonderful meeting with Tucker! We meet him Saturday morning (you'll all be asleep Friday night while we're holding our little guy for the first time.)
*THAT WE WOULD PASS COURT ON MONDAY THE 17th!!!!!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pray for this. It will be Sunday night - if you would wake up to say a short prayer for us, or at least pray before you go to sleep it would be much appreciated!!
*that our hearts won't break in two when we have to say goodbye to Tucker for the trip back on Tuesday. I am dreading that moment.
*safe flying back to the states - we fly out of Ethiopia Tuesday around midnight and will fly back into Dulles Wednesday around 3pm.
*a fast embassy date so that we can turn right back around in a few weeks to bring our son home!!
Thank you so much for the prayers, excitement, and encouragement! Just a reminder for all you who have commented about pictures: We will NOT be able to post any pictures of Tucker until he is a US citizen. That will not happen until our 2nd trip - so you have to wait a bit longer I'm afraid. So sorry to those who were confused and thought they might get a glimpse this week. :( We'll post as soon as we can on that second trip!!
