Here we come Zaela!!!!

It's hard to believe my turn has finally come!!! It is strange to think that when I return home life as I know it will be over! I am looking forward to a new chapter with little Zaela and just can not wait to get her in my arms and home forever. I will be leaving from LAX at 1045 tomorrow (Friday) and meeting my mom in NYC.......... I will try to post from Ethiopia but the computer usage is limited and the internet connection slow at best! See you all when WE get HOME:-)))
Here is the rest of my itinerary on Emirites Airlines.....

NYC-Dubai 11:00 PM - 7:45 PM (Aug 16)
Dubai - Addis 8:25 AM (Aug 17) - 11:30 AM

Addis - Dubai 7:35 PM (Aug 22) - 12:45 AM (Aug 23)
Dubai - NYC 2:00 AM - 7:45 AM (Emirites Flight 203)
NYC - LAX 11:30 AM - 2:31 PM (United Flight 87)

If all goes well we will be home Saturday the 23rd at 2:31 PM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YaY :-))))))))

All I can say it wow! It seems like it was a lifetime ago that our dossiers traveled to ET together.. I so happy that it is now your time to go to ET and to return with your beautiful daughter. You're both in our thoughts. :-)

You'll be home tomorrow with your new little love ~ congratulations! I am an adoptive mom to 2 daughters from Guatemala and my birth daughter that I relinquished for adoption just adopted from Ethiopia! She brought her home in July.
My next doll will either be an AAfrican or Korean ~ it all depends on how many requests I get for each. Please check out my webssite and see if one is right for your!
blessings to you and your family,
Mary Beth
