Hello from Ethiopia!
 
 
It hasn't been easy to get internet access here, but finally able to write now!  We got to Addis late Saturday night, and got to our guest house and slept very well.  Sunday we went to a Baptist Ethiopian church, which was very neat to see!  The people were all so friendly, and even someone interpreted for us!  Then in the afternoon we got to go meet our little Wilson!  It was a neat experience meeting him for the first time!  It didn't go quite as expected, but what does I guess!  Wilson was very attached to one of his nannies, so it took a little bit for him to warm up to us!  But once he did, it has been such a neat bonding experience for us and him!  He is a very laid back baby, and we couldn't be more blessed with our little boys!  He is the cutest thing ever, and I am so excited to get back and show him off to everyone!(pictures to come later)   Monday Adam went to the Embassy and paid our fee, and went to the Bethany office in the afternoon to see all they do there.  Today we went to a market, and bought a lot of things from Africa to bring home.  Now we are just waiting to go to the Embassy, and get Wilson's visa!  Then it should make everything official to bring him home!  We have actually had him since Sunday, so he has been with us most of the time!  Lets just say he is very fond of his daddy! :)  I will try and write more this week if I can, but the rest of the week we will just be going around experiencing Addis, and then Thursday night we fly out.  We are very excited about bringing him home, and getting to see Hudson again of course!  On another note too, we love our guest house we are staying at and the group of people we are with!  Couldn't be more blessed with our experience! Goodbye for now~
