13 Hours to Liftoff......

Hey all. We made it safe and sound to DC. I even figured out how to use Wi-Fi from our hotel room! I didn't know it was that easy!!!

We have a few updates: David jammed his right thumb loading the suitcases (all 6 of them!!) into the back of the truck - my "virus" isn't getting any better, so I think I'm going to take those antibiotics the Dr. gave me! The other bad news is that my ex-sister-in-law passed away yesterday from cancer (we haven't told Squeeker).As usual, there are a lot of obstacles in our paths, but we are focused, and READY TO GO!!!

We are going to spend the day in DC today, probably at the Air and Space Museum or maybe the Smithsonian and then head to the airport around 5ish!

Squeeker wanted to call the WMIT, the Christian radio station we listen to at home, to tell them we are on our way to Africa. We contacted them back in August because Carol, one of WMIT morning personalities had a little girl a month after Pickles was born. Our dear friend Cheri called and left us a message on my cell phone letting us know she heard Squeeker on the radio!!! He is so excited about his baby sister!!

Cheri: Girl, you made me cry when I heard your voice mail message this morning!!!!

We love you all, and thanks for your prayers, and your support during this life-changing event!

Happy Halloween!!!!!

David, Robin and Squeeker

I've been following your blog and I'm so excited for your family! I'm assuming that you are home now and can't wait to see pics and hear how the trip went. I am going to be adopting from Ethiopia so your blog has helped me see the "insiders" view first. Thank you!
