Tentative travel dates!!!!!!!!

We just got tentative travel dates from our agency!!!!!!!!!

We will need to be in Ethiopia on December 12th (zeks 3 month birthday). Gotcha day is the very next day December 13th!!!!!!! We will leave Ethiopia on December 17th putting us back home on either the 17th or 18th!!!!!!! From the start of our adoption for bringing Zek home is less than 8 months!!!!! Thank you God!!! You are amazing!!!!!!

I have called our travel agency already and they are looking into flights for us.

I really hoped that this is when we would be traveling and we are!!!!! Well, not confirmed yet. It will be confirmed next week and then we can book our tickets!!!!!!

We are coming little Zek!!!!!!

We also got an update on Zek. He is already 8 lbs and 8 oz and about 21.5 inches long!!!!! Our update says...

How to Approach the Child based in his Personality: You can pick him up and hold him. (so he wont be scared of us!!! :) )

Personality Adam is a content baby most of the time. He is sweet and adorable, loves to be held. (I love to hold my babies ALOT)

LIKES Classical Music – baby lullabies before bed while being rocked.

I am feeling anxiety about leaving our girls. Please pray for peace for us and for them!!!!

I cannot believe that in 23 days we will be leaving for Ethiopia!!!!!!! This is amazing!!!!! We have to start packing!!!!!

I had a baby shower thrown for me this past weekend and I will post pics soon!!!!

    You've got an awesome travel group! Wish we were going to be in it (hopefully you can check on our little one and let her know we're coming for her (hopefully not long after you)). Y'all are going to have such a great trip. Will be praying for smooth travels and a good transition for little Zek.
