On Wednesday we got word that Chernet CLEARED EMBASSY! He has a visa and can leave Ethiopia for the US. I know several people are confused since JT and I are both here in Louisville but Chernet had his embassy appointment. Our agency director is picking up Chernet for us. There are many circumstances that led us to choosing this option. So Lesley is there, and we are here.
After his embassy appointment, they took Chernet for his first ice cream cone! He loved it...I can not wait to see pictures of that. Also, we were told he was very excited to have his own Superman underwear and clothes. Love this... so many more superhero underwear waiting for him. Then, today when Lesley woke up he greeted her with a hug and an "America?" I wanted to scream.... " YES COME TO AMERICA....your mommy wants you here!"
Airport: they land at 11:45 PM Sunday night. I know it is crazy late but nevertheless... I will be there with bells on. Please know that anyone who dares to stay up and drink coffee with me is welcome as well... We would be honored to have anyone... just bring your camera because I wont be able to take any.
Thank you for all the support and encouragement...I am thankful beyond belief.
