We'll be leaving our house for the last time as a family of three in approximately 14 hours. We will return to it a family of four.
It hardly seems real--we've been thinking about this for so long, and actively pursuing it for a year now. I can hardly believe it's about to happen. But our suitcases are packed, including over 100 pounds of donated items (thank you so very, very much!). We actually had too much to pack all of it and will be passing along the rest to other families who will be traveling in the future. It's all going to make it over--we just didn't have enough room for everything!
I will have the laptop, those posts are likely to be short and infrequent. Pictures will have to wait until we're back.
We love you all. Thank you so much for all of your prayers and wishes on our behalf. Melkamu will soon be home with us, and I am so very happy that you have all joined us on this journey!
