Leaving....no I mean LEFT the country!!!!

IT'S TRUE....we are en route to Ethiopia!!!


We got our call that Nev's visa was issued on Wednesday...and had to pack and we left Friday June 4th from Saskatoon....Calgary....Frankfurt....Addis....!!!!



BUT had a little glitch in our travels. We are still in Frankfurt. Long, long story short, we missed the plane due to the little fact that I was unable to get on it, due to being really ill. It was a combo of migraine, dehydration, exhaustion, feeling like fainting when I stood up, and feeling like vomiting......



So a short ambulance ride and some meds got me fixed up....but not in time to catch the flight. So we now leave Frankfurt Monday am...arrive to Addis at supper. We have adjusted pretty well now to the time change, and are fully rested for our adventure in Ethiopia.



I can't believe it......this journey is ending....and our new journey of life WITH Nev is beginning. Thanks y'all for your support. I will be posting pics and travel stuff. But probably until we get home...this is it.....



For those of you who want to come to the meet and greet at the Stoon airport, we arrive at 7:55pm on June 13th(my mom's birthday!!) on the West Jet flight from Calgary. Feel free to come out and see Nev and us too.....as after this we will probably be hibernating for awhile until Nev attaches to us and things are more normal. But as for coming to the airport, we will be so jacked up to see anyone, so feel totally welcome to come...but not pressured to come.


But I can finally post this.... We are bringing our daughter Nevaeh Chaltu home.......This is the first picture we saw of our daughter........now you guys can finally see it too....the journey is almost over to getting our daughter.......

Wow! You've already had quite an adventure!!! Not everyone can say that they have been to a hospital in Frankfurt!

So glad that you are not on your way and that you will soon be home with both of your beautiful daughters. What a blessing!

Hope you are feeling much better and can enjoy the time in Ethiopia.

Congratulations! It's funny how happy I am for someone I've never met. But I'm all misty for you, and helps me envision my time, though it is a long way away....
