It's time

Our daughters are coming home!

Last week we found out that the embassy cleared our case.

So we're going to Ethiopia.  On Sunday.

And arriving back in Denver the following Sunday.

With Tigist.

And Mekdes.

And so very much catching up to do with these beautiful girls who are my daughters, these girls I scarcely know.

A chapter ending: the one of waiting and wondering, and praying for a resolution and living in limbo.

A chapter being written: the long, takes-a-lifetime road of knowing my precious daughters, giving my heart to them and doing my mama's-best to cherish and nourish two sweet souls.

Sweet souls who have spent years as orphans, watching baby after baby leave...while they remained.

Now, finally, it's their turn.  Their turn.

Now, finally, I can say:

Tigist and Mekdes, Mommy and Daddy are coming to get you next week!  Your towels are hanging in the bathroom, your beds are made, and oh, Mommy still needs to buy your toothbrushes.  We can't wait to begin our lives together, to give you hugs and kisses every day and to laugh together, and to never have to be apart again.  We're your Mommy and Daddy.  We're a family. 

It's time.
