Just a Few Suitcases
Enough luggage for an army, carseats for 4, food for a month, clothes for an entire orphanage, gifts for many of God's servants, paperwork enough to start a large bonfire, and clothes for 7
....all piled in the back of our van AND truck.
A beautiful good bye from family and friends, some time in prayer and a suprisingly uneventful drive to SFO (complete with one last American In-N-Out stop on the way).
....we are feeling the Lord carry us as our prayer warriors go to battle for us.
We suprisingly breezed through security without the slightest glitch. So far, the smoothest event of our adoption...yeah, imagine that!
The kids are racing up and down the airport walk ways as I sit and stare at the giant bird we are about to board (1 more hour) that will fly us 1/2 way to our kids. The swirling wave of emotions is finally calming as the reality of it all it settling in.
This IS happening...we ARE going...and our family WILL be together at last.
PRAISE THE LORD AND HIS PERFECT WAYS, FOR HE IS MIGHTY AND WORTHY OF PRAISE FOREVER AND EVER!!!
Here we gooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
