Adorable again in the Pink Princess Sweatshirt

Just received some updated photos of Miss she is sporting the bucket hat look...

... and here she is looking like she really needs us as much as we need her.

Tomorrow is the big day of departure. I am traveling with my very cool and adventurous friend Elizabeth and Karl is staying here and taking care of the home team.Elizabeth and I leave tomorrow (Saturday) arrive in Addis Ababa on Sunday and meet Rosie at her orphanage on Monday. We go to the embassy early in the week and then fly home on Thursday to arrive in Cincinnati Friday afternoon. Whew, what a week!

I wonder what she will think of me?
I am off to try and sleep while I can... I don't think a person could be more excited then I am right now...Rosie girl, here we come!


  1. Maggie, I wish you safe and happy travels! I can't wait to see pics of her home! And maybe with a new outfit???

  2. Safe travels... and take care of yourself and your sweet Rosie. You should see if they would allow you to have that sweatshirt! I can't wait to see pictures of the whole family together!

  3. Oh I'm all teary eyed knowing you finally get to go get her!! It's been too long! Good luck, happy travels and can't wait to hear about your trip when you get home!

  4. She is beautiful. Have an AMAZING trip, I can just imagine how excited you must be!
