Well, it's midnight, and we are leaving tomorrow. I should be asleep. But alas, I am not. My living room is filled with suitcases and carry ons. My brain is even more filled with... everything.
When I've watched others get to this point, I've envied them there excitement and joy. Now, here we are. It is our turn. While I do have excitement and joy (when I have 2 seconds to think about it), my primary emotion is stress. Now, I'm not sure that stress is an emotion. But I'm sure feeling it. I just can't believe that everything is going to work out, that we are REALLY going to meet them. So my mind worries about all of the details, the packing, what to wear, how to carry it, did we bring enough, too much, and the paperwork. Whoa Nelly, the paperwork. Putting that together was way worse than the Dossier. Lots more riding on this puppy!
But, we are 95% ready to go. We have our I600 paperwork ready, we have our I864 paperwork ready. We have the donations ready, we have passports and visas ready, we have money, we have Edward picking us up, and a place to stay. The rest is all details. Because people, we will be touching down in Ghana, the birthplace of our children, breathing the same air, smelling the same smells, seeing the same sky as our 4 blessings... in 28 hours. How amazing is that? How remarkably blessed are we all, that God has allowed us to play a part in this miracle? It is humbling and simply awe inspiring. For truly:
No eye has seen,
No ear has heard,
No mind can conceive,
What God has planned,
for those that love Him.
We surely could not have imagined the path our lives would take. So very cool. So. very. cool.
Thank you everybody for all of your support, love, and well wishes. We couldn't have done this without you!!!
Going To Ghana!!!
