Everything is now confirmed for travel. I will fly out of Lincoln on July 7th, getting into Ethiopia on Friday night late. On Saturday and Sunday I will be traveling to meet the birth mother and visit his home village. (They also said we would take a boat ride and see some hippos!!) Our Embassy appointment is 9:00 Monday morning so I will pick up Elijah Monday morning before the appointment. Then we have to wait 48 hours for the US Visa and we will fly out on Wednesday night getting back to Lincoln on Thursday the 14th!!
