Leaving this morning on our 8,000 mile journey to go to Ethiopia to see our Peaches. Many emotions flooding our thoughts as we begin to physically travel to a place that our hearts have already emotionally traveled to. We land in Addis in about 40 hours. Hopefully we'll be holding our little girl not long after that.
New obstacles arrived Sunday night as we found out we would have to claim and recheck our luggage during our overnight stay in DC. While this would not normally be a problem, it became huge since we are taking so many donations. In addition to that, fear came upon us both as we realized we were getting ready to leave. Leaving children behind and heading on a trip that has endless emotions wrapped up in it is not for the faint of heart. But we are reminded that whether we are sitting in our living room or flying over the Atlantic, God holds us in the palm of His hand. He is our sufficiency, He is our satisfaction.
We are in need of your prayers and are thankful for an amazing group of friends here at home. They have reached into our lives in countless ways, especially over the last several days, and are with us as we board the plane today. We are truly blessed.
Well, gotta run if I'm going to make it to the airport 4 hours early!
