We are excitedly counting the days until we see our little girl! I spent all weekend catching up on laundry and packing the kids clothes. They will be split between Grandma's house and my best friend Laura's....so far, I haven't freaked out too much about leaving them, although it is there in my mind waiting to surface at any moment!
Surprisingly, I am totally ready for this trip(almost)..usually I run around like a wild woman at the last minute trying to remember everything..I guess the week's not over though:)..
I do have fears though..beyond just the plane ride:)..what if the medicals don't match what we see? What if she screams bloody murder at the very sight of us? What if one of us gets sick while there? What if something happens to one of my kids back home? What if.....the list goes on and on.. But, we have friends and church family praying for us, for our kids, and for our visit with our sweet little girl...so, I think we're good to go, don't you?
If you had told me a year ago that we would be on our way to Bulgaria to adopt a daughter this year..I probably would've doubted that..we knew the wait for a healthy girl was at least 18 months...but I'm so glad God opened our hearts to this little girl...!! Her special need is SOOO mild, and I can't imagine NOT wanting her! I want her more than words can say:)! It's hard to love her while at the same time "holding back", because nothing is certain yet... You almost try to not feel anything...but, then we look at her picture...and the first words out of my husband's mouth are, "Aww, Daddy's little girl!"......let's just say, I melt all over the floor!
And to all still waiting, please hold on! God has a plan...and it's hardly ever OUR plan...but it's perfect, and beautiful, and right on time! I'm with you 100% in prayer and support anytime you need me!
Now, IS IT SATURDAY YET!!!!??????
(By the way, those of you who follow soontobemomof9...we get to travel on the same flight to Bulgaria!! Surely I can pick her out of the 200+ people on the plane;).
