We have our flights! We leave Metro Airport at 6 am this Friday the 14th and will travel 23 hours to Kigali arriving at 5 am our time, noon local time. I just checked the weather and it is predicting rain all week until Saturday where they are certainly rolling out the welcome banner with 77 degrees and sunny from there on out! How kind for them to arrange this for us. Our return flight leaves on Thanksgiving Day. This Thanksgiving will be a memorable one! We leave Addis Ababa at 3pm our time and arrive home 7pm the next day. Twenty-eight hours of travel with a little girl that does not even know us yet seems a bit daunting at the moment. But, we have made it through other "daunting" moments, and this one will be with a very joyful reunion/meeting at the end of it on which to keep our eyes focused.
