Pray for our safe journey home

Our journey to Africa has come to an end and I am thrilled to be on our way home! Electricity has been non-existent most of the week. So this is why I haven't posted more. Sorry!

Right now I'm at the airport in ET and we are waiting to board the plane!!!! I don't have a whole lot of time to elaborate about our time, but I will say it was a trip of a lifetime and one that I would definitely do over and over again for our beautiful baby girl! She has captured my heart and I know you will fall in love with her too! Ahnya and I have developed a good bond together. I've learned so much about her. She's so funny and smart. It's funny because she can be wild and crazy just like Gabbi and Jojo. I swear she says momma and dada, too! Ahnya is feeling better with her day 2 of Omnisef antibiotic for ear infection and respritory infection. She has a deep cough and terrible diahrea blow outs. So I hope the plane ride goes good! If not, it's going to be interesting.

Hope to see you at the airport and love to you all! Ann

Hi Everyone,
I know you are home safe and sound with your little bundle of joy. Uncle Stan and I wish you all the very best. I'd love to see another picture of little Anyah. This is all so exciting. Love you! Auntie Lois in IL

I hope you had a safe and easy trip home! Isaac did not want to sit down or be in the bassinet seat. He cried a lot and was pretty miserable...we had to stand and rock him about 80% of the time. Thus...I'm thankful to be home. I LOVED meeting you and sharing the experience of meeting our babies and exploring Ethiopia. Thanks for being such a warm and wonderful person! Kiss Ahnya for me and I look staying in touch! Love, Jess
