Today was spent packing. Packing, packing, packing!
At latest count, I (Amy) have packed 5 of our 8 suitcases ... each weighing in at the maximum 50 pound limit.
Thank you to all who donated items that we will bring to Ethiopia. They are going to the AHOPE for children orphanage. Check out their website www.ahopeforchildren.org for more information about these amazing orphanages that care for HIV+ children.
It's hard to believe that we will be on our way to JFK in only 48 hours. Only 2 more nights in my bed ... then Monday night will be spent sleeping in a plane! 14 hours from JFK to Dubai ... the girls are excited now, we'll see how they feel after they've been sitting in the same seat all night long. :)
We'll spend 2 nights in Dubai, then off to Ethiopia. We'll be spending the first week volunteering at a school ... and then we'll meet Tariku on Friday, March 14. :) We're turning inside out these days ... the wait is finally almost over.
Well, I am off to more packing. We'll keep you posted along the journey. Stop by often.
