Another great day in Addis

Today has been another great day here in Addis Ababa!  We are tucked into our hotel for the evening...just catching up on our Internet time:). We spent time with Seifu and the other kids at the orphanage today, we played soccer, memory, jumped rope and just has alot of fun. These kids are so sweet and have the best attitude.  Then we headed to lunch and then out for a little souvenir shopping.          Our driver is so good, he translates and negotiates for us.  We are so blessed to have him as our driver.  Tomorrow we are heading to the volcano lakes with Seifu for a day outing.  We are going to soak up the rest of time we have left here in Addis.  This has been a wonderful trip:).

Date with Seifu

Today we had a very great day!!!  We got to take Seifu out to lunch today and spend sometime with him outside of the orphanage.  Seifu was alot more shy and quiet outside of the orphanage than he has been inside.  We also went to visit Denver's orphanage today and all of his nannies were so excited to see him.  We told them Waqo was here to visit and they were so excited they started yelling to all the other nannies to come see Waqo.  They wanted to love and hug on him but he was pretty shy and scared of all the attention.  They had a picture of him when he was an infant up on the wall, so Grant took a picture of it.  I think we tired Seifu out today running him all over Addis with us but I think he had fun.  Denver and Seifu have already bonded so much, they are going to be great brothers!  I just realized the pics I have posted yesterday and today are not showing up so Grant is going to add them to his Facebook if you want to see him.  If you're not his friend he said just friend request them and he will accept:)

Meeting Seifu

Today we met Seifu for the first time.  We got to spend 3 hours playing with him and all the other kids at the orphanage.  We are all still exhausted from flying and jetlag so we are going to stay in and rest this evening.  Seifu is such a sweet, smart and funny kid.  His personality is going to fit perfect in our family.  He took my camera and started taking pics of all the other kids and  then showing all of was so cute.  We will head to the agency tomorrow to go over some court questions and then head to the orphanage to see Seifu.  After that we have our court appointment, and then we just get to spend time with Seifu the rest or the trip.  Thanks for all of the thoughts and  prayers!  Many blessings

Going to Ethiopia!!!

I know I have been horrible about updating but I have come to the realization I will never be good at blogging so I will just do my best....which is not very good at all:)
We leave tomorrow for Ethiopia for our court date for Seifu, YAY!!!!!!  We are so excited to meet him and spend time with him at the orphanage.  We are all 3 going over as a family and Grant's mom is going with us.  It is going to be such a great trip.  I have heard such wonderful things about the kid's at the orphanage and how great they are.  We will spend 3 hours/day playing with them and just getting to show them love.  Seifu will not be able to come home with us this trip b/c this is just our court date and we will have to wait for his embassy appointment before we can bring him home.  We are hoping this will be 6-8 weeks after his court date which is May 29th! 
For any creepers who read this we have people house sitting for us
and 2 crazy pets so don't try anything! 
Now I need to get packing!!!
