WE ARE HOME!!

Well, we made it home Friday!! We actually arrived at RDU a half hour early!

Our flight left Ethiopia around 10:40 pm, Ethiopian time. We had more trouble with our plane tickets. The baby didn't have the seat that was paid for. We did get our seat, but somebody ended up sitting in a jump seat because Ethiopian Airlines over-filled the flight.

Meteku was *the best* baby *ever* on the plane! People around us commented on how wonderful he was! He cried just a tiny bit when he got hungry and another little bit when he was frustrated with not being able to crawl around.

We were greeted at the airport by our parents, Susan's sister, Patti with her children, Tabitha, Benjamin, and Isaac, and Leslie-Jean, Carl, Bethany, and Miriam Colglazier!!! Thank-you all for the wonderful welcome home!!!!

Thank-you all for your prayers! We knew that we had a whole army of prayer warriors asking God for our good health, safety, and smooth process! THANK-YOU!

We will be posting photos and thoughts from our trip as we can.
