Ok so its been a crazy few days. We got the call on Friday late afternoon letting us know our travel dates. We need to be in EThiopia on the 19th of april and leave on the 23rd. Travel plans need to be approved by our case manager before we actually purchase the tickets so this meant a flurry of activity on Friday to contact a travel agent, find flights and email the plan to AGCI for approval.
Now for the exciting part. We leave on Saturday afternoon the 18th and will arrive in Addis on the evening of sunday the 19th. Monday the 20th will be the day we get Noah T. We leave Addis on Thursday night the 23rd and arrive home on friday morning the 24th. We will be flying in/out of Dulles.
I'm happy to say that we got alot of the stuff done on our to do list and are well on our way to being ready for travel. We should be receiving new pictures of Noah T. this week. I talked to our case manager today and she said that she is sorting thru all the pictures that she took in Ethiopia last week. In the update email we got we found out he is now 28.7 inches long and weighs 20.06lbs. Our international adoption ped says he has grown nicely since his last measurements in Dec. We were told he is a content baby, sweet spirited and adorable. Christy(case manager) pretty much confirmed this today on the phone. She also said he is crawling so its a good thing i have done some child proofing. We are so excited and can't wait to bring our son home.
I know everyone wants to see pictures and I forgot to ask if we can post them now or if we need to wait until we get home so i'll email AGCI and post some if i'm allowed.
