It is Time.

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.

You know that we just returned and it was the most amazing experience - hard to put into words. We will now eat Ramen noodles for the next five years. We're carrying the debt - best debt ever to be repaid :) Seriously, I smile every time we send a payment because it was worth every damn penny! Go for it - with or without finances.
