Can't believe

it's today. At the Quad City International Airport waiting for our first flight to Detroit. Said our tearful goodbyes to our babies. It was tearful indeed because it was a rough night.

We're thinking the kids ate/drank something that didn't sit well and it was about a billion degrees outside and inside our house (no air conditioning remember) and so Trysten threw up all night last night. Dailah woke up and also threw up. They all seem to be better now but it's hard leaving them like that.

But it's for a good reason. Remember the reason?

You ready for it?

It's for these two.

Tomas (toe-mas) age 6.




and Binyam (Bin-yum) age 3.



We will meet them in a few short days.

Until then, a day and a half of flights for my beloved and me.

Pray for the whole deal, including my babes who aren't quite at par.

I told you they were cute did I not? :)

This is going to sound weird. My friend sent me a link to your blog because we are also adopting a 3 year old boy from Ethiopia and leave next week. His name is - Binyam! Too funny because in Amharic, they usually spell it Biniyam, but where our son is from, it's Binyam. When you get back, can you e-mail me? I'd love to see if our kids are from the same region of Ethiopia (near Awassa?) jdbruegger@yahoo.com Hope you have a wonderful trip!
