We're Leaving On A Jet Plane!!

Well, the time is here!  Oh my word how long I have waited to utter those words.  I cannot believe I am actually going to be on my way in less than 24 hours to go get our babies!!!!!

I can't say time has flown over the last 13 months.  It hasn't.  But we have managed to get through the wait with a lot of prayer and a lot of patience I didn't know I had.  It hasn't been fun, but as many have reminded me along the way, it is God's timing, not ours.  He knew from the beginning what would happen and when.  He plans it all perfectly and it is up to us to execute the plan.  Well, that time is now, and I am ready to go!

I must say, there is a lot of nervousness mixed in with all that excitement.  There are so many unknowns, so many possible bumps in the proverbial road that we are to trod over the course of the next month or more.  I know He knows those too, and He will lead us through any hardships that might come, but it is still scary.

As always, I ask for your prayers.  Pray that we have safe travels both to our children's country and in it.  Pray that their health is good and ours remains that way.  Pray for a smooth and uneventful trip all around.  And pray for our other children and their caregivers while we are away.  We are blessed to have such wonderful, responsible kids and such thoughtful and helpful friends!!!!  Though we will of course still miss them TONS while we are gone!

So, the packing is done, the plans are made, I will rest easy once I am on that plane.  (maybe)  But I will try  :)

We will try to keep you up to date if you have been given access to our blog while we are away.  If not, we'll see you after we get back from the other side of the pond!!!  Here we come Charlotte and Atticus-- Mommy and Daddy can't wait to meet you!!


  1. Have a wonderful trip! Relax and try to enjoy your time together. :-) Oh, I just realized I should have sent you something to bring to show the nannies about how well Elijah is doing...oh well...too late now. :-)

  2. I can't get you guys off of my mind. I think about the upcoming days and weeks everyday. I have, and will continue to pray. So excited (and nervous) for you!!!!! WOOHOO!!!!

  3. Oh, I forgot. I LOVE their names!!!
