And they're off!!!

Soon I will be able to see this sweet face in person! Mom and Janaya left today for Washington D.C. and tomorrow they will be on the plane headed to Ethiopia!
We are soo ready for Zena to be HOME.
Here is her room:

A close-up of her little angels

Her dollhouse (she likes dolls and balls, remember?)

Her clothes before they were packed into a suitcase

Her hat and mittens since the poor thing is going to be thrown into a world of cold and snow!

And our princess album full of over-analyzed pictures that we recieved during this process--if you're part of an adoptive family you know how the desperation for any ounce of imformation about your child leads to endless hours of analyzing their pictures during the wait :) There are lots of blank pages waiting to be filled with pictures together with mommy, daddy, and all the brothers and sisters who already adore her!

I have a feeling these are going to be the longest two weeks of my life...
Any suggestions of fun activities to do with the kids while we wait for Mom, Janaya and Zena to come home are more than welcome!

So excited for you and your family. I can't wait to see the pics of you all together!

Ohhh you just made me cry. This was really nice how Zena can look at those pics one day when she gets older. It's Tuesday morning in ET so she should have Zena in her arms really soon. Hang in there. They will be home sooner than you think.
