The time is rapidly approaching. We must travel back to Ethiopia. Almost every night the questions are coming, "were you there when I came out of her tummy?" "is she alive?" "did I cry in the orphanage" "I think she is dead..."
Her heart and mind are open right now. The questions I can not answer are coming forth and although there is no guarantee that the answers will come when we travel, at least she'll have a connection that she can remember, at least she'll know we tried and that I support her in her quest.
Our biggest burden is finances. I cut my last credit card with the adoption tax credit and it's a huge relief not having that burden. I don't have a solid savings and stinky life situations (fractured elbows, bad teeth, rising gas prices...) keep our savings from blooming.
Our goal is Spring 2014.
First step is getting the girl a passport.
