It was almost five years ago that we brought the girls home from Ethiopia. We told the girls that we would bring them back to see their family when they were eight years old. Back then, it seemed a lifetime away… But the girls turn either years old this summer, and by all appearances, our clinic should open in May.
So, with some deep reflection and absolute disregard for financial realities, Jason and I have decided that we are going to take the girls to Ethiopia this spring. We were hoping to double their trip with a court trip for the next little guy. But since we haven’t heard anything on that front, we’ve decided we’d better charge ahead. Once the clinic opens, it will be insanely hard to get away for a couple of weeks. So it makes sense, if not remotely financially, to do it now.
We’ve been hmmming and hawing about it with the girls, but their Christmas presents will seal the deal. I bought them tonight online… Their own luggage! Just what they wanted, to go to Ethiopia….
