We have been madly preparing for our departure to get Zeke. Part of the prep has been giving Maddy a sense of how long it will be until we leave. In 3 year old speak, the # of sleeps seems to help her understand. Daddy also made a little count down calendar so they can check off the days.
Yesterday we went to our agency & got our final paperwork & schedule. We will meet Zeke on Monday 12/13. We were also given updated info about him:
He weighs 25 pounds
He is 33 inches tall
He has 14 teeth
He loves sweets (the boy takes after Mama), doesn't like sour
He likes to play with stacking cups, dolls (hope he & Maddy don't fight:) & loves wood blocks
His favorite snack is crackers
His care givers know that he is joining his forever family soon & are sad (sounds like he is loved)
Please pray for our safety, good health, transition for Zeke, attachment to his family, favor w/the airlines, guides, hotels officials, etc.
