The Day We Met You (Day 3)

We arrived in Ethiopia around 10 am and the driver took us to the guesthouse to drop off our things and then we headed straight to lunch with the rest of the group.  It was so fun to meet all the families that have walked this journey with me.  We ate at a greek restaurant and then after that we headed to the Transition Home to meet our baby girl.  It is hard to even describe the emotion of seeing her.  It seemed so surreal.  We were holding our daughter.  We had several hours to spend with her and she did great.  She smiled and we fed her and gave her a bottle.  After we left, we went to a cultural Ethiopian dinner and we were exhausted.  Jet lag had caught up to us in a big way.  I took so many pictures that I cannot even begin to put them all here.
