OUR VISAS ARE IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

More details to follow, but we are free and clear to travel to pick up our children!!!!!  I can't believe it.  I'm crying as I write this.

We hope to leave a week from today...but will keep you posted.

Nine years and two months after we started our first adoption process...three years and one month after our file landed in Ethiopia...six months after we received our referral of these two beautiful children...over three months after we attended court in Addis Ababa...two months after we finally passed court...and four weeks after our file landed at the Canadian High Commission for visa processing...

...WE FINALLY GET TO BRING OUR CHILDREN HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can you hear me shouting from the rooftops?????

So thankful, so scared, so excited, so emotional...

...more to come.
