We’re On Our Way!!!


We are at the Charlotte airport getting ready to board our flight to Dulles in Washington, DC. Then we will get on another flight to Frankfurt, Germany. That flight is 7.5 hours. We’ll be there for 2-3 hours and then get on another 7.5 hour flight to Addis in Ethiopia!!

Our whole itinerary is listed below on my Tuesday blog post so you can follow us along.

I’ll post updates as much as I can. Thanks for taking this journey with us through your prayers and excitement. We have been SO incredibly blessed by each of you and all your notes.

One very excited soon-to-be Aster’s mommy!
