Hope you all had a great weekend. I'd love to introduce you to a sweet family. You're about to fall in love. You'll probably want to adopt. *Shrug* So be it. I'm just saying... this lovely family met their daughter last month, and I have not laid eyes on a cutie like this. I mean, seriously, look at this kid.
Her name is Emme. Let me give you a little run down of this part of Ethiopian adoption. When you are matched with a child you accept or deny that child. If you accept you are assigned a court date a couple of months later. So then you fly to Ethiopia, meet your child, and go to court (where she officially and permanently becomes your child). But then... you have to leave, go home and wait for an Embassy date a few months later. That's where the Knights are right now. Their daughter, Emme, is still in a transition home waiting to be picked up. This is undoubtedly the hardest part. Our job this week is to pick up some of the financial burden. When they get home with Emme their adventure begins. It won't be easy. But we can make sure that owing a ton of money is not on their list of concerns. Just look at that little girl! You simply must go see their meeting Emme video. Get a Kleenex. Then come on back and donate. They need to go get their baby girl and this is the last leg of the whole thing. Let's see if we can carry the travel expense, at least. Ready, go!
