Let's Go To Ethiopia - Again!

It happened! It finally happened!

We received an email yesterday from the US Embassy in Ethiopia and they are ready for us!

It's time to bring Elsa home!!

It is so surreal - in just a few weeks she will be here. I can't wait to have her be a part of everyday life; running errands, baking cookies, sitting with us at the dinner table. These seem like very ordinary activities, but Elsa hasn't had a mother to run errands with, or a kitchen to bake in, or a family to dine with. There are so many things that we take for granted everyday. Elsa has really opened my eyes; indeed, she has made the ordinary seem extraordinary.

Our appointment at the embassy is set for November 12th.

Let the great airline-ticket-search, begin!

Now for more exciting news:

As many of you know, I am one of six children (all extremely talented, might I add ;) ). Well, my older brother, Michael, has entered a songwriting competition sponsored by Guitar Center. The top 100 finalists are chosen based off of the number of views each video recieves.

So, would you be so kind as to click on the video below and help him make it to the top 100? I would be so grateful! (And I know he will, too!)
