I just had a wonderful phone conversation!!! I was able to speak with both Mike and Abu, since they have cleared US customs and are gearing up for the final legs of their journey home: a short flight to NYC, a stop at my parents to visit Gramma and Pappy and also pick up Abby, and the drive up and over the border. Both of my guys sound great and eager to be together with the rest of the family.
One blessing from the flight home was the opportunity to visit with another Ethiopian seated near Mike and Abu. Through this gentleman, Mike was able to have extended translated conversations with Abu about his life, background, and future. What a special gift!
Just a few more hours until we are all under the same roof!
