We got to the airport this morning just fine. All in all, the packing and preparing has been really smooth. Aside from Chuck's little tooth mishap, everything has been smooth sailing. According to Chuck's dentist, he should be in pretty uncomfortable pain, but he is doing just fine. Thanks for the prayers, I believe that is the power of prayer.
Saying goodbye to the girls proved to be a little hard on Tissy. She has always been pretty sensitive and has a hard time saying goodbye. My parents came over this morning and we prayed together as a family. Took some pics and gave our hugs and we were off. We arrived in PLENTY of time to the airport for check in (always a good idea for international travel). When we were saying thanks and goodbye to my Dad, he reminded us how God blesses the "risk takers". I loved leaving on that thought. The whole adoption process is a risk. But we put our faith in God and not anything else. Praying He will continue to bless us for the leap of faith that we are taking as we follow His lead.
Found out that we will meet up with one family in Amsterdam when we change planes there. How fun to have some traveling buddies. They feel like family already since we have emailed back and forth (yay to listserve).
Thanks for the prayers and well wishes. We are SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO grateful for all the love, support, help and prayers. Thank you for journeying with us. Hopefully we will be able to send some updates along the way, if not...we will be home in just a week.
Dear Sweet Peas,
We are FINALLY on our way to come and meet you and bring you home. It is such a joy to share our journey with so many friends and family. We have such fantastic support and everyone is so very happy for our family.
