Embassy date confirmed: Jan 3rd, 2011

In exactly 12 hours, our plane will lift off from Bradley International Airport and we will begin the long journey to finally, finally, bring our daughter home! The house is spotless, the nursery is ready, Lucy's closet is filled with freshly laundered clothes, there's homemade baby food in the freezer, and mom is sleepless with anticipation.

We will be staying at the care center where Lucy presently lives, and taking full-time custody of her after our embassy hearing on Monday. We will be taking a day trip to Woliso to see where she is from, including St. Mary's church. We will be learning her food, sleep, and play habits, and trying to learn how to properly change her diaper, bathe her, and soothe her.

We will be shedding many tears of joy and repeatedly thanking all of you who have cared for us, helped us, and waited with us for this glorious time.

Next time you see us, you'll be awestruck by our stunning girl. We certainly are!
