Greetings from Ethiopia!

As soon as I was getting out of bed and coming downstairs to eat some cereal, the phone rang and it was Amber!!! I was getting worried because I haven't heard from them yet. Anyway, we were talking and after 2 minutes we got disconnected. I called her back and the connection was still bad but were we able to talk. There is like a 3second delay so it's hard to have a conversation! They were able to get Ayana on Saturday after some manuevering and they said she is wonderful. Amber said she is so small and that all of the clothes they brought are too big for her. She is nine months old but is wearing six month clothing. She is a healthy weight but just small. She has a chest cold and a snotty nose and Amber thinks she may have scabies but other than that, she is super! Amber and Rick said they are already crazy about her and they sounded so giddy over the phone. Amber was happy to tell me that Rick changed the first poopy diaper and they have had no 'blow outs' to report of. :) Right now it is 9pm on Sunday in Addis and they have their embassy appointment in the morning. Yay!!!!

We were so relieved to hear they made it safe and were not surprised at all to learn that they worked their way in to get Ayana already! :) We can't wait to meet her!

Lindsay,
Thank you for the texts earlier, sorry I didn't ever reply...I read them and then got busy and completely forgot. Thanks again for doing the updates!!

I am so happy they are finally united with their 2nd daughter. I bet Savannah cannot wait to meet her sister in person. Thank you for keeping us posted. I've been thinking about the Boyd's so much.
