I got to talk with a mom who is adopting a little girl from EmeryMin's orphanage and room. It was so fun to talk with someone, who should have been a stranger, but was more like a close friend from the start since we are bonded through our daughters for life. It was neat to see how our experiences differ and are the same and so wonderful to see these children finding loving homes. This woman is so gracious and kind, she told me she was going to change her prayers for us to be more specific and I appreciate that. I feel like I ask and have asked for a lot of prayers. I feel and appreciate them so very much and have felt their power. Here's where we are at: We are waiting for Travel Approval. I am praying for it to come this week and for us to be able to travel next week. This is a tall order, but doable. I am hoping the answer is 'yes'. If not we should be getting our travel approval next week and traveling shortly after that.
We are getting so close. I am amazed at all of the blessing that have happened in this adoption. We thought we would travel in late October or early November. We will be traveling in late July most likely. That is pretty fast. I was at birthday party for two great friends last night and we were talking about some flight horror stories with medical emergencies. Someone noticed that I was looking a little green:) Another friend said that God hasn't brought us all this way and kept EmeryMin healthy just to have His blessing end on the flight. I feel that way now. Even with the butterflies, I have felt carried and blessed, my road has been made smooth. I have known that minimiracles have happened. And I have no reason to expect for those blessings to suddenly stop. We have felt so strongly that we have been prepared to bring EmeryMin home and while I am still praying hard for everything to continue to work out smoothly, I just have no reason to doubt that it will and am grateful for that peace.
I will keep this blog updated when we get some travel plans...you might hear my screaming down in the lower 48:)
