Our work here is done.  We've visited seven orphanages/children's homes in the past three days.  Every dolly found a child.  Every crib toy and mobile found a crib.  If even one child in Addis is comforted by their dolly tonight, it was worth the effort.  Thank you all so much for making these treasures and allowing us, and those traveling with us, to have the honor of delivering them and the joy of seeing the smiles on their faces.


We wouldn't have kept this pace if she hadn't been doing so well and keeping right up with us, but I think we are all three pretty tired now and ready to get home.  Ready to get home and rest together as a family of four.


Tomorrow morning we leave Addis at 10 am.  (I think that is 2 am at home.)  We fly straight to Frankfurt, no stopping in Sudan this time (yay!).  And then we have a short flight to Amsterdam where we are spending the night.  It's going to be a shock to all three of us to go straight from Yebsabi to a Sheraton!  Nothing against Yebsabi... 


And finally... here is Logan's new favorite video.

She is such a sweet baby girl. We can't wait to meet her. I'm sure Gracie, Emma, and Temar will have cute little tea parties at Mamaw's house. So Sweet. We love you all and are continuing to pray for you.
