We're Leavin'..On a midnight plane to Ethiopia!!

Okay I checked it out and I will TRY to post via email to the blog while we are gone! We are so so so excited! We have people staying at the house while we are gone and the grammies are in full swing with Bianca...First thing tomorrow, we ARE OUTTA HERE!!!! Wow, the CRAZY emotions today.
I just want to THANK GOD for this time. Wow, I cannot believe how blessed our lives are that we get to parent little Solie! I am blown away!
Please pray for our trip...Mainly for Solie,her little heart to be prepared for a momma and daddy. Also for each orphan living without a parent tonight...Wow, that number is astronomical,,,and totally wrong.
We all deserve to be loved and cared for. And EVERY child deserves and home full of love.
I am so thankful for the people in our lives that have walked this path with us again. You have really really been so wonderful to us and we will forever be thankful.
On another note...I really am hoping to get photos of every child at Solie's orphanage while we are there for their parents in the US. I do not want to miss anyone, so please send us some good vibes, so I can be organized enough to make this happen for these anxious parents!
Will write as I know more...see more and experience this whole thing with Eric...I can't wait! I have always wanted to travel to Africa with him...And now it is such a life changing trip for us!
