Lee, Amy, Lilia and Kaiser

We have our tickets booked!

We passed court on Christmas eve!  This long journey is almost coming to an end.   Kaiser's birth certificate and passport are being processed as we speak.  We are hopefully going to submit his paperwork to the Embassy on Wednesday, for an embassy appointment Feb. 2nd.  We stepped out in faith and bought our plane tickets to leave on January 29th for Ethiopia!  We can't wait to get our baby boy and have him in our arms forever.
We are taking Lilia with us and my mom.  I can't wait to share this experience with my mom, to have her help us bring our son home.  The 3 adults to 2 kids ratio is also a big help!
We are in the process of having a croc drive and have collected over 200 pairs of crocs and more are on the way.  What a blessing it has been to see our friends and family step up for a good cause.  We are up to our eyeballs in shoes!  We also have 126 cans of formula to bring this time.  We are going to be packed to the gills!  8 total bags, plus 8 small carry-ons.  In February, our little man will officially become a United States citizen.  Yay!
Now for the difficult part..............pray that our paperwork is ready to turn in Wednesday, and pray that the embassy clears us for February 2nd.  Thank you!!
