the final countdown

doo-doo-doo-do!

In less than 24 hours we will be on a plane to Ethiopia! Wowsers!!

A few more things to wrap up today and we're on our way.

There's no way we would be here if it weren't for the Lord. Just thinking about each miraculous detail that had to take place for us to be united with our son...it's almost too much to take in. Our son.

Please pray for:
  • safe and smooth travel
  • protection from sickness
  • sweet and peaceful transition for Silas
  • bonding
  • consulate and visa details to fall into place
  • precious beginning for our family

I will try to update from ET....hopefully we'll figure out pictures.

Chapter 1 is almost finished and we're on to Chapter 2. I can't imagine it being any better. The Lord has done immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. Ephesians 3:20-21
