Exhale...

Finally able to breath out (as in I have been holding my breath for a long time now) we can happily say that Meklit's waiver is done, and we can now bring her home. There are no appointments or forms or fees or hoops to jump through, just come get her. So, I leave this Saturday the 10th, will have her on Monday, and we fly back out on Wed the 15th returning to Portland on the evening of the 16th. It makes it only a 3 day stay in Addis, which is about a year less than I would prefer, but with work and the ability to get on planes it was either now or the end of the month, so here we go again.

Now to the packing.
