There's No Place Like Home

We made it home last night and, ahhhh, it is good to be home! All of our travels went so smoothly and it was a very joyful reunion with Caedmon. We were away from Caedmon for 10 days, which is three times longer than we've ever been away from him before. We were all having a hard time with it by the end.

Several people have asked me how it was to say goodbye to Wondimu and how I'm doing now. All I can say is that I can feel people's prayers. I know that many people have prayed specifically for us regarding this separation, and it is quite evident. I find myself constantly thinking of him, calculating what time it is in Ethiopia, and thinking of what he's probably doing that minute. Now that I know what he sounds like, and feels like, and smells like, my thoughts of him are much more vivid.

We are praying for a quick Embassy appointment so that we can be reunited quickly and that we can get our family in one location. In the meantime, I will busy myself with making all the final preparations to welcome him home!
