Proof that “baby-brain” affects adopting moms too:

Let’s just say the chicken enchilada’s were a little….mushy.  There is only one explanation for this unusual behavior.  Mom mode.  Apparently, taking care of all the details to get to Bruk requires 100%  brain capacity at the sacrifice of less important things, like not cooking toxins into our mexican food.  We still ate half of that gooey goodness though.

In other news… if your reading this post on Saturday morning, we are already on a plane bound for DC then Ethiopia.  If all goes as planned we’ll be hanging out with Bruk by Sunday morning!  Here is the rundown of the trip [keep in mind that Ethiopia is 7 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time]:  


6:05 am – leave for DC

11:15 am – leave for Addis Ababa, Ethiopia


7:45 am – Arrive in Ethiopia

Meet Bruk!


Hang out with Bruk!


Court!  We don’t know what time exactly but if we pass he will officially be our SON.  Wow.

Wednesday – Friday

More more more time with Bruk and learning about Ethiopian culture.

Friday at 10:15pm we leave for the long trip home [without Bruk 😦 but we’re comin’ back for you little guy!]

Arrive back in NC by 1:30 on Saturday afternoon



We will try to update the blog or facebook or something if we are able but can’t make any promises.

Thank you for praying for us!


Drew and Cass
