Sorry for the lack of updates! Computer access hasn't been very consistent here in Mexico, and it's also been really hard to find time to write.
We ran into some major roadblocks regarding Z's adoption, but things seem to be getting better. We are praying, praying, praying, that her case gets expedited so that we can still get through court before they all close for the rainy season. There's still a chance we'll make it! And if we do, be prepared to see TONS of pictures of my beautiful sister :)
Here's a picture of Z's "Welcome Bag". It has a photo album to introduce her to our family, a shirt, balls (that are the colors of the Ethiopian flag), and a soft little blankey thing. My Mom also wrote her a note telling her how ecstatic we are to have her in the family, and how we can't wait to meet her! It's crazy to imagine that pretty soon she'll know about us. I wonder what will be going through her little head...
