The Friendly Skies

I have arrived on African soil. I left Saturday at midnight and it is Monday night (I think). I just keep thinking "I am much too young to feel this old". That good ol' country song. Actually it was all very uneventful. I met up with Jeremy and Dawson (the father and brother of another sibling group that are being adopted) in Atlanta. We were met by a local missionary here in Africa and taken to our hotel. Now 12 short hours from now we will be back on a plane to our final destination. In many ways it doesn't feel real. Yet, the more I hear about this little ones, there is no doubt that I would travel to the moon and back to get to them.

Please keep praying. I am hoping to be able to spend time with them soon and especially on Thanksgiving. SO much to be thankful for!!!!

Glad to hear you are getting closer! I remember thinking that I couldn't believe I was there either especially after anticipating it for so long! I am so proud of you for going it by yourself. We are praying you meet them on thanksgiving!
