In all his pink majesty, may I introduce to all of you Mishamo French Pehlke! For those of you who know me, how perfect is it that my son is in drag?
We made it through court last Friday. No hitches so far. Ethiopia has given us the blessing to be the blessed parents of this beautiful boy!
We feel so lucky and are so excited!!!
Now we endure the next stage of wait: the birth certificate and travel date.
We were given anywhere from 8 to 12 more weeks - putting us somewhere in late August in the best case scenario and late September on the other end. Things are a bit backed up. Ethiopia is experiencing a severe drought and power outages are frequent. As a result, birth certificates are being sput out at a rather slow rate.
I owe many of you email responses, and they are a comin, but thanks to everyone overall for all your kind words and support!
Please feel free to leave us comments and any parenting advice here on the blog. As first time parents, at least we've kept the dogs alive, so we're feeling pretty good about the upgrade!
David and I live in the big cold blast known as Chicago. We have two delightful doozers, Daisy and Ulysses. David is one of those lawyerly types, and I muddle around in the non-profit world. We are in the process of bringing home a delightful baby boy named Misho. Welcome to the Big Woo!
