{in Ethiopia with our son!}

We're here safe and sound! Got in last night and went straight to bed... this morning we went to Hannah's Hope (unexpectedly - but fine with us!) and spent 2 hours there. Then we were told the wonderful words "okay, time to go to the hotel, take your baby with you." Oh joy! We got back to the hotel and within 15 minutes Tucker was sound asleep for the next 2 hours... so we went to sleep too! We had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and then back up for bath time a bottle and bed. He's snoring away right now and I'm about to join him! :)

PS - don't be jealous, but it's mid 70's and sunny here. Best weather ever!

Oh hurray! This just gives me so much hope!! We are in the early stages of our adoption (actually, having our first fundraiser now, an online auction) and it's posts like these that remind me it will ALL be WORTH it!!!
