Mama's coming, sweet one!



Breathe in, breathe out! That's what I had to tell myself this afternoon. We got our travel approval today! YIPPEE!!! God is so Good! We tentatively leave the 11th of Dec. Yes, you read that correctly: NEXT WEEK! We should know for sure tomorrow, after our agency has flights scheduled! I can't believe it. I am so excited. In about 14 days, I will get to hold my sweet little peanut. The sweet one I have dreamed about, the one I have longed for. What a perfect Christmas present. In fact, we should be back home Christmas Eve, so Toryn will get to be home for Christmas.

Please pray for us! We have so much to do and get ready. Besides planning a trip clear across the world, we have work, about 7-8 basketball games before we go, and who knows what else to work in. I know, God is in complete control, and it will all get done! Keep reminding me of that! To everyone who has graced us with your prayers, a great big thank you! To everyone who has helped us with donations, etc., we continue to ask God to bless you in a very special way! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! I have no doubt God will continue to provide, but please join us in
prayer.

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Proverbs 3:5
We will continue to trust Him!
