Leaving on a Jet Plane

So it's official we bought our tickets yesterday! I am so excited I couldn't sleep!

We will be heading out on the 9th of September, Robert will be returning a week later, and Sarah and I will hopefully follow on the 19th. Pray for fast visa processing. My mom will be flying through Salt Lake around the 20th for work, so if we make it home in time, she will get to meet....Ajua.

We've also tentatively decided to call her Ajua. We are fairly certain that is what she is called at the orphanage, so she is used to it (although from the video we posted a while ago, she also knows 'Sarah').

Anyway, we have also tentatively decided to spell it Ajua instead of Adwoa. That will make it a lot easier for people to recognize - and be able to pronounce - her name.

Any tips you can suggest for travelling with a 2 year old for something like 17 hours would be oh so helpful!

Here are some awesome pictures I found today... is it too much to expect our flight will be anything like this? Probably.

I can't believe how fast that has gone for you!! I'm so excited for you and your family. I hope everything goes wonderfully and you have Sara/Ajua home as soon as possible!

Wow! That is really fast! Have you passed court yet? We passed court Aug 15 and are leaving Sep 6 to file our I600 and then the visas for our kids. I am planning to stay a month, and hoping and praying it takes less time than that.

Wow! I am so excited for you! Congratulations!
As far as the trip goes, I'd suggest picture books, LOTS and LOTS of snacks, and a personal DVD player, but that's just me. ;)

Good Luck! That is so amazing. Congrats again!
