Leavin' on a Jet Plane
We used a travel agency called ReachOne that our Agency recommended. It wasn't until we received our ticket receipts on Friday that we found out that the ReachOne is actually short for ReachOne for Christ. Very cool.
We'll fly from Omaha to Minneapolis to Washington DC on the 23rd. Then we'll stay overnight in DC. The next morning we'll fly from DC to Addis on a straight shot - it's a 12 hour flight! We'll leave DC at 11:30 am and arrive 12 hours later in Addis. But instead of 11:30 pm, it will be 7:30 am the next morning. That should make the next day quite interesting. I'm picturing us getting off the plane at 7:30 am in the morning in Addis and thinking, "Why is everyone so wide awake.....it's the middle of the night......go to bed!!!!" I'm guessing I will come close to overdosing on Ethiopian coffee on that day.
We expect to be able to see Peaches on that Friday that we land. It's possible that it won't work out until the next day - we won't know for sure until we get there. It's exciting to think that we're one step closer to seeing our little girl. Holding her and telling her - "owa da shallo."
