The plane ride from the US to Germany was no fun. We had bad turbulence pretty much the whole time and it didn't help that hubby kept saying the oxygen mask were going to fall any minute. When we arrived in Ethiopia everything went smooth. We even had all of our luggage!
It was so amazing pulling up to Providence again. It felt like coming home to family. I can't even explain how much we love and feel so comfortable in Ethiopia.
We slept really good last night. I think when you are on a plane for almost 24 hours you will crash no matter how excited you are.
We left and went to Kaldis for a little celebration. Caleb was having so much fun, so we decided to do a little shopping and then went to lunch. He really started to warm up to us quickly and anytime someone came by him he would cling to me. He still loves his daddy and laughs like crazy at him. He loved being in the sling with me and still adores my hair. He likes it so much that he pulls it out. He cracks up when he does it, so I will let him :)
He loves the car and loves sticking his hand out the window.
We are at the guest house now and will be in for the rest of the day. We are all going to take a little nap. I can't wait for him to wake up so we can play some more :)
God is so good and I know that this whole journey is really just beginning for us. When we get home that is when it will get tough. He needs to learn and understand that we are his parents and we are the ones he can count on and feel safe with. That will take a long time, maybe even years. I am excited for this next chaper in our lives.
Thank you all for sharing in our joy!
Sorry there are no pictures. There won't be any until we get home. This is not my computer.
Tomorrow we are going to church and then who knows!
I can't wait for all my babies to be together, I think my heart will burst.
Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
