Meidyn's Journey Home

This is the journey, from beginning to end, of how we got our daughter home. We have not met her, she may not even be born... but she's already found a way into our hearts.

I want her home NOW!

To outsiders I probably appear to be normal, maybe even a little laid me when I tell you... THAT IS NOT THE CASE! I have been EXTREMELY patient throughout this process. I have paid my dues and with very little complaining. I didn't even go balistic when we missed the cutoff court date by ONE day. So here's the truth...I have been looking at this picture of a tiny, beautiful 9 week old baby for almost 3 months!! She probably doesn't even look like this picture anymore!! I want her home! Something should be done so that people do not have to wake up everyday to a picture of their child and NOT be able to hold them for 4 months with no information. I am truly done with this whole process. If all goes well we will travel in 36 days DO NOT JUDGE ME! YOU WOULD COUNT DOWN TOO! This is entirely too long to go without some type of information about her. A picture..something. As I sit here I know, that like labor pains, this pain with fade as soon as I hold her but I can honestly say that I could not do this again. My personality does not mesh well with the cruelty of the wait. To those who do this more than once, I am awed by your commitment. Ok... Thats it for now.

6 weeks and counting!

I've started packing and shopping and worrying, right on schedule! We have less than a month before our court date and about 6 weeks before we travel. I am really going to start getting some things checked off my list this weekend. I'm uneasy about leaving our 5 year old home with Grandma and I'm sure I'll be a wreck when we leave. I need to remember to get him a BIG BROTHER tee shirt and prizes to open when I'm gone. I wish I had someone to come to my house and organize me.

Packing Lists...HELP PLEASE

I thought that this would be the easy part but I have way too much stuff for just us and one very little baby. all of you who have traveled give me some advice. Give me 5 necessities that you couldn't live with out and 5 things that you could have left at home. A special thanks to Lisa who just returned from Ethiopia with her children. She has given me enough info on our little one to hold me over until November. OK...don't be shy. Leave packing info!!!
