Hello all. Long time, no blog. We have been extra busy now that the end is in sight! Just got off the phone with Eldon at Golden Rule Travel. We have our first trip flights booked and ready to go. Carey is busy scrambling around trying to get the myriad of lose ends tied up that come with having family and friends watching 3 of our 4 kids for 3 plus weeks. This is a rather daunting endeavor with so many unknowns. Will we have enough time? Will we have everything we need? Will we have enough money to make it to the end? Did I forget any documentation? ( I have a bad memory so this is a very real concern)
We just have to remember to put it all in the Lord's hands. I have to remind myself often of Matthew 6:25-27 "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?"
I have also updated our Chip In for what we believe is the final amount we will need to complete the adoption of Julia and Aaron. Rest assured, any money raised that we end up not needing for our adoption will be donated to another family in process once our children have been brought home. So prayerfully consider helping us reach this final goal. I thank you all for your prayers and support. This has been an exciting but very taxing journey so far. Please continue to pray for us. It means the world to Carey and I.
