Day 1







20 bags, 15 carry ons and 6 hours later, we made it to Houston!! A few storms in Houston delayed us but we are about to board the flight to Dubai.

We have already cried about 100 times today as it is overwhelming to think that we are actually leaving for Ethiopia.  We are overwhelmed at our friends and familys generosity and genuine excitement for our family on this journey.

For those of you that have read my blog before, you will quickly notice the change in quality of photographs!! We are honored to have Kristin (friend from college) joining us on this trip.  She happens to be a professional photographer. :)

Next post, Dubai!!! :)  Love you all.  Team Alexander
