June 4th! They expect us to travel June 13th-22nd!

I am so happy, I could explode!

It still feels very surreal, but it really is going to happen! I got some new pictures of Piper. This first one is her sitting on the pot :)

Not real happy about that, is she?

And here she is walking....

Poor thing, they keep shaving her head. I guess I will learn how to take care of her hair as it grows out, which may be best anyways. Thank goodness for the Adoption hair care Yahoo group!

She looks so sad, or like she really needs some sleep! Probably both! The thing I want most is for her to smile. I understand that that may be awhile and that's ok.

Side note...went to check on Cam to RE-tuck him for the umpteenth time into bed and found her picture under his pillow. He said he just wanted to sleep with it. That makes my heart very happy.

Yippee !!
How exciting. I didn't realize things moved so quickly with adopting from Ethiopia. Can't wait to see Piper home soon.

Congratulations! Maybe we'll see you in passing at the Addis airport ... we will be leaving Addis with Kali on June 14th. And don't let that book scare you too much ... scared me too but have gotten many reassurances from others who have gotten Ethiopian toddlers!

Congratulations on your court date and your beautiful little girl. Yesterday was quite a big day. It will be great if we can travel together. I was told there is a chance I could be traveling by mid June. I love the story of your son sleeping with Piper's picture. She is so fortunate to have two big brothers to help with her transition.

Congrats! I saw her when we were over there, I saw her when we were over there! A sweet little girl indeed...I will look to see if she is in any of my pictures that I took. She is in the same orphanage that Silas was in....I will tell you it was the nicest orphanage out of the three. It is smaller and that way they can take better care of the kiddos! Ya! She is so sweet, so so so sweet! She needs her mom and dad and sibliings and she is going to get them soon! Yah! Maybe email me your address so I can send you any pictures I might have....I am hoping I have at least one. :)
