In 9 Days I May Poop Myself

We are leaving for Ethiopia in five days and meet our Davy Girl in 9 days. When I think about it my heart speeds up and I get butterflies in my stomach. This process has been so long and so hard. We never thought we would ever get to love a child. We never thought we would get to meet our daughter. OUR daughter. We have so much to do before we leave and then before she comes home. I can’t imagine turning our vaguely-adult-but-somehow-teenage-home into a house for a child. I can’t wait. I can’t wait to meet the other families we are traveling with and hug them (a warning..I am a little bit of a hugger). I can’t wait for us to start this journey, pooping and all. I say bring it. Bring it on. Let’s go.
