It's finally here!!! Today we leave for EE to start the in country process of adopting Julia and Aaron. How we can't wait to meet them : ) Our SDA appt. is Tuesday, March 15. After which, we will take an overnight train ride to the region where the orphanage is and hopefully meet them on the 16th!!
Today, we are leaving around noon for the airport. Our good friends, Aimee and Roger, will be bring us. Our flight is 5:50pm out of Dulles. I am not very fond of flying, in fact, it always causes me a good amount of anxiety. Steve and I are traveling with Steve's mom and our 22 month old son, Evan. We have horrible seats on this 747....right smack in the middle of the 5 seats across the middle of the plane, 2 in front, 2 in back. Hopefully, someone will be kind enough to switch seats around so at least we can have 3 seats in a row with Evan between Steve and I. Please pray that this happens.
We are pretty much packed and just tying up loose ends and spending time with our three oldest that we are leaving behind. My mother is coming down on the train on Sunday to stay with them. For tonight, Steve's dad will stay overnight with them, get them to church in the morning, and pick my mom up from the train station tomorrow at 4pm.
Well, that's the update for now.....our return flight is scheduled for April 7, but if we get a court date earlier than this, we can change it and come home earlier. Thank you everyone for all of your love, encouragement and support. Please continue to pray for this leg of the adoption process, that everything goes smoothly and in God's good time! We will update shortly after we arrive.....
