I can not believe that in less than a week we take off to meet our son! It's also amazing to imagine what next Christmas will be like with him here. We are pretty sure that holiday celebrations at orphanages are small at best, and probably don't include specific gifts for individual children, so Christmas 2012 will be like nothing he has ever seen! I can't wait!!! (In fact I sort-of want to begin shopping now!) Here are this week's prayer requests......
1. Danny: please pray his heart is prepared to meet us and accept us as his Momma and Daddy. Also, tomorrow is his 4th birthday, so pray it is happy, and they let us throw a little party for him while there!
2. US!! Safe travels, no flight delays, good sleep (I do not sleep on planes, so this will be interesting) and safety driving across a foreign country with our driver and facilitator.
3. Our team! We are so blessed to work with an amazing team both here in the US and in Danny's country. I'm so looking forward to meeting everyone and spending some time with them.
4. Our families and friends! You have all been so incredibly supportive, and we could not appreciate you more. Each of you are in our prayers as we embark on the next steps of this journey.
Merry Christmas to each of you. We pray that you know the peace that comes from knowing Christ!
