Wow! I win at LOSER BLOGGER of the year! :-) So sorry, I honestly think about this EVERY day and just don't get here in time! But, I am about to leave and I will be updating almost daily! I PROMISE!
So, I know everyone wants to know the scoop! I apologize for not blogging, but the last couple of weeks have been a little bit of a roller coaster... might get to travel to have meeting with SNA on the 28th, then it was the 4th. And, Praise God it is the 4th! Then we found out that my Mom won't be able to travel with me for the beginning of the trip.... she will get to come, just not until half way through!
This, is a HUGE request that I have! PLEASE pray that God will give me wisdom, strength and courage for this first part of the journey. It is going to be hard! While I am so excited about getting my little girl and holding her in my arms, there will be a lot of HARD stuff that we will have to go through! PLEASE pray that the Lord will have mercy in the HARD stuff! Please also continue praying that God will prepare our hearts for one another and that she will have resiliency in all of these changes. Please pray that we will bond well and that I will know what to do and how best to minister to her during the difficult transition times.
Thank you for your prayers during this journey! I can hardly believe that the time to go get her is actually here! I have been pinching myself for three days, saying to myself, THIS IS REAL!!! FINALLY! What an amazing thought, what an overwhelming thought! Thank you to the many of you who have offered to do whatever to help me get out of here! :-) Please pray for my sweet Mia, the sassy Chihuahua, as I leave her tomorrow. She is being left with some very wonderful people who are so wonderful to care for her, and for them I am eternally grateful! But, you see, my sassy Chihuahua and I have such a sweet bond (don't meet her on the street though, she'll chew your shoes off!) and I will miss her terribly! Please pray that God will prepare my little one and my Chihuahua for each other too, I know that sounds silly, but seriously, Mia is used to having her own way about EVERYTHING! :-)
Thank you for hearing all of my requests, the time is here, and for that I am so overjoyed! I am so incredibly blessed, and God has brought me this far, I know HE is sovreign and in control of all things! Blessings to you all! Next update from Peru!!
