6 days to go!!!

I can not believe that we are leaving this week!! Even though I always knew that we would be going, it just seemed like a far off dream! (and it will probably seem so until I am there!) We are totally packed and ready to go! All we have to do is grab our suitcases (all 7 of them + 3 carry-ons) and go...at 4 in the morning this Sunday... 8) ( i am NOT a morning person!) PLEASE pray that we do not get sick while there!!!!!!!!! Several people have gotten really sick so please pray that does not happen to us! That is the last thing we need, especially on that LONG plane ride home with the 3 babies. Also, please keep Jocelyn in your prayers as she had her referral but the parents decided to keep the baby after all :(

You are so living the dream of our 17 year old daughter, Emily. In September we learned of triplet girls from Liberia and were really psyched about the possibility of them being in our family. Then they were returned to the village in October. We still pray for them and now praying about adopting from Ethiopia. Our desire is twin girls. When we thought we could possibly get a referral for the girls, Em went and go all the immunizations and was ready to travel with my husband and I. Alas, it didn't work out. Hopefully she can travel when/if we get some girls from ET.

We were all sick and it really dampened our experience, so I really hope the same doesn't happen to you! I'm sending healthy thoughts your way!

It warms my heart for you to mention Jocelyn in the midst of all your happiness. Thank you for keeping her in your thoughts and helping others to send positive wishes her way, as well.

Good luck on your trip. I will eagerly await pictures! Alyson (Jocelyn's sister)
