Day 2 in Addis

Well with keeping w/ tradition...always an adventure!

When we arrived it was a bit concerning to find the the agency here and our agency at home to not be on the same page where the girls were at!  What?! We expected them to be in Addis when in fact they are still up north in Mekele.  We still cant use the phone so I had to send an over-dramatic email to our agency expressing our frustrations...I will blame that on jet-lag and lack of sleep ;)

It's not too big of a deal- we will need to fly up there Saterday BUT we were told that every single return flight is booked for the next week!  We are now on standby for a return flgiht.  They want us to fly back to Addis with the girls but that would mean that 4 seats need to open up on Monday's return flight.

If this does not happen they will drive the girls to Addis tomorrow.  BUT a 1 hour flight is actually a 24 hour car ride because of the mountainous terrain.  I dont think the girls would arrive until Sunday or Monday and they will be exhausested.  So please pray with us that 4 seats will open up on a return flight!

It is so important for us to visit up north to see the girl's region- but if flights dont work out we would just fly up there to visit on our 2nd trip to Ethiopia.

I know everything will all work out just fine and our hope is knowing that God is in control of this whole situation- he know's what's going on and what is for the best for everyone. 

If we thought waiting to see the twins was hard at home- you can only imagine what it's like to be sitting in a hotel in Ethiopia twiddling our thumbs is like :)
