Getting Ready !

In less then two weeks we will be in Russia!! Tickets have all been purchased and now we are just waiting on our Visa! I will be honest and say even though I am really exited I am nervous too.I know everyone always says this but, leaving the kids WILL be hard. I guess you always worry when your a mom. I have already made several lists even though the kids all know this stuff! Having a SN son makes things a bit more stressful for me too. Sometimes I just have to take a deep breath and have faith that all will be fine. We will be gone nine days because we are staying in Korea a couple days too. Lots of deep thoughts and feelings lately about what is to come.I keep praying that we will be in tune and know Gods will for us regarding this precious baby girl.

I know exactly how you feel. When we went to Kyrgyzstan to get our son, we left our girls for 2 weeks. At that time I had a 16 and 10 yr old. They could take care of themself, but I still had a melt down before leaving them. It isn't easy. I'll keep you in my prayers. One thing that might make your trip easier is if you talk on Skype. It is free if you talk from computer to computer. Just make sure both computers have a webcam, and you can see each other to. It makes things much easier. We used that when my daughter went to Kyrgyzstan on a mission trip. We talked every day. I wished I knew about it when we went to adopt because we had no way of calling our kids, and we never talked to them aside of email the entire 2 weeks. You can also have the option to call any phone number including a cell phone from your computer. It is amazing, and the best option if you have internet hook up where you are staying.

I do know how you feel. I was SO stressed as our travel date approached. I cried myself to sleep the night before we left because I was just so worried and filled with wonder if I truly was following God's call for our family or if somehow I had made this happen against God's will. I was so worried that something would happen to Mike and I and we'd leave all these children without parents. I prayed "please God don't make me trade the wonderful life we have here with our sons for the JOY that meeting our daughter will bring to my heart". God is good and it all worked out just fine.... we survived, had a great 1st trip visiting and all of our children at home did just fine! I hope that your trip goes equally well. I will definitely keep you in my prayers for a safe and easy journey there and back.
