My Arms Hurt!

Today I went to the travel clinic and had 7 shots.  My arms are sore!!!!  What we do for our children.  I am ready now to head for Ethiopia.  If I had to leave tomorrow, I think I could.  My house is not ready. My job is not ready.  My heart is more than ready (okay if I'm really honest its still a little overwhelmed by it all). But I can't wait to have him in my arms.

Sunday is Mother's day. And it has a whole new meaning to me.  Last year's mother's day was hard for me.  I just wasn't anywhere near where I thought I wanted to be in my life. But  this year even though he's on the other side of the world, I'm still feeling excited and happy about mother's day. 

But when I think of his birth mom.  I'm pretty sure they don't have mother's day in Ethiopia, but I think about her, what she must feel everyday.  And my heart hurts for her.

Praying, praying, praying! Let me know when you find out little man's weight/height. I may have some clothes he can wear! Maybe even shoes!
