On Saturday May 29th I boarded a plane and made my way to DC. When I arrived my dear friend Heather had already arrived at our hotel. Heather flew all the way from Phoenix to make this incredible journey to get our Samuel. On Sunday at noon we took off for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. I seriously slept most of the 13 hours... We arrived and were greeted by 3 of the nicest friends. Yonas, David and Job. They all work for America World Adoption and during this process they have become special friends to us.
After a quick lunch we made our ways to the transition house where Samuel has been living for the last 5+ months. Here he is in his room.
Heather gave Sam love for the first time.
Early the next morning (Tuesday) me were back at the home meeting with the staff doctor. She gave us a lesson on how to care for Sam's skin. After a bath (with urine) and lot scraping and rubbing...
Having Heather with me for the week was the best blessing. She was a lifesaver!
