Our flights were originally scheduled for Sunday but since I got Darya's visa today, Eldon at Golden Rule worked some of his magic and we are flying back home tomorrow!!! We will have a hefty layover in Charlotte, NC (7 hours!) but that means we will be home 2 days sooner. We were re-routed and arrive into Jacksonville, FL, where we will be greeted by Joel and the boys! I cannot wait!!
I cannot believe our adoption journey is coming to an end. I cannot believe that sweet beautiful little Darya is now my daughter!! It has been amazing and we are so blown away by God's provision and sovereign hand throughout it all. I wish you could all meet Darya in person one day. She is an amazing little angel and I feel so honored and privileged that God is allowing Joel and me to parent her. I pray that we will glorify God in doing so, and that He will give us wisdom and grace in raising our beloved daughter.
Now, I'm off to bed so we can wake up at 3:30am! Thank you to everyone who has followed our journey and for all your prayers, support, encouragement, and love shown to us all. It has truly been a blessing and each and every comment has been an encouragement to me throughout this journey. It is my prayer that our journey will be an encouragement to you all, too! I will certainly be updating the blog of our life with Darya! Blessings to you all!
