WE MADE IT!!! Here's OUR girl!

Well, we finally have what we have been waiting for....court approval from Ethiopia and a travel date! We heard yesterday that our case was heard in Ethiopia and we were approved! What a huge relief. The courts are supposed to close today, so we cut it close! Too close if you ask me. But, in the end it all worked out. So, now we can officially post a picture of our girl! Here's our sweet girl looking a little startled--remember this is her first time seeing a flash and having her picture taken.

We also have tentative plans for being in Addis Ababa by September 14th. We have started to look for tickets, and I am already losing sleep. We have never left Makenna for this long (I think the longest was 5 days), so I am worried about how she will do. Ahh, being a mom, isn't it great to worry all of the time!?!
