I have 4 days left with my precious boys. In 2 days we fly to California. 2 days after that I say goodbye to them for over a month. I won't even see them for the whole month of September, missing Sam's 9th birthday. *sigh* But that also means I'm so close to meeting our baby girl! I couldn't hold it in any longer, but told them that we're going to Disneyland on Tuesday. What a fun last "hoorah" with them :-) Of course they are super excited!
In 7 days from today Joel and I will be in the air, bound for Eastern Europe. My mind is racing a mile a minute with a million little things swirling around in it. I know that all the details that I worry about are all known and cared for by God. There are no surprises to Him and I know He'll care for us all!
Tomorrow is my last Sunday with my church family for a while and I will greatly miss them. It will be an oasis when I get home and can't wait to introduce Darya to her church family here (and other friends in the area)! So many people already love and pray for her and I know can't wait to love on her and welcome her home. I am so thankful for that! Hopefully in a few months, we'll get to take her to California to meet our family and friends there who will do the same!
Oh, and another thing, I'm debating whether or not I should go private on this blog while I'm there. I think I'd be able to more freely share our experience there if I do. I can invite 100 people, so I doubt I would exclude anyone who wants to follow along! Any thoughts or opinions?
