Tick, Tock, Tick, Tock

A quick update.  As you can imagine we have been a little busy since our court date.  Pack, pack, pack, double check everything we need to take, pack for a little one, buy airline tickets, wrap up work needs, double check the packing.  To say the least, it's been a bit crazy here at the Ponsler household.  We are leaving Indiana on Friday with stops in Detroit, Amsterdam, Sudan and our final destination - Ethiopia.  We are scheduled to arrive in Addis Ababa at 10 pm their time.  Our current plan is to let our bodies and minds adjust as much as possible on Sunday and get acquainted with our wonderful host family. Monday is the big day for both of us and our son.  We will meet him for the first time.  Poor thing, he won't have a clue that we are coming and all the love that we have for him.  Our hope is to continue to update our blog with pictures and details of the journey depending on how well the internet connection is while we are there.  The amount of prayers, donations for the orphanage, support have been overwhelming, we are truly blessed with an amazing group of family and friends, we can't thank you enough!
