yesterday we received notice that the embassy has cleared us for travel. we've requested a visa appointment for june 29th or 30th, the earliest dates available. we're still waiting for confirmation, and if it's a go i may be addis-bound in about five days.
i'm absolutely floored by how quickly this final stage has come about. i've an estimated seven billion things to do before leaving, but i just may be with our boy this time next week.
and that, my friends, is a whole mountain of miracle.
