Getting back into the swing of things is harder than I thought it would be. We’ve only been home a couple days, so maybe it will get easier.The jet lag is crazy and we’re still recovering from the altitude sickness we acquired in Ethiopia. Basically, we’re just really tired and really dizzy all the time. Next time we’ll know to take our meds!:)

But in all of that, the strangest thing is to be home without our son. The pain of saying goodbye has not faded and to be honest, I don’t think it will. We’re just getting through and hoping to stay busy until we get the phone call that it’s finally time to bring him home. In the meantime we’ve been staring at his pictures and watching videos just to feel closer to him.

We’ve been so changed by our time in Ethiopia. We experienced things that opened our hearts and our eyes in new ways. There is so much to process and take in. I look forward to sharing bits and pieces soon.

Just remembering his beautiful face… 

and his sweet baby smell…
