The countdown has begun. We are under a week of count down now. In 6 days we'll be landing in Haiti and in 7 days I'll be holding my sweet children in my arms and introducing them to their daddy for the first time. Can you even begin to imagine meeting your child for the first time ever?
Here's who I'm looking forward to seeing …..
We have raised $350 from the paypal donations. Awesome! We'll take that money and buy food for people in Haiti. We hope to truly bless some people with food while we are there. We have also collected lots of supplies for the clinic where the Livesay's are and for them personally. We're bringing them some good cofffee and cashews and candy and fun stuff that they can't get at their local Wal-Mart. 🙂 We'll get to meet Dr. Jen and Tess when we are there too.
We fly in on May 1st and the next day head out to where Licia is to see our kids. Lori won't be there b/c she'll be in the states with her hubby. Hopefully we can do some stuff around there with the kids in the Rescue Center.
It's almost May 1st!!! Between now and then Aaron will fly to Austin and back, we'll have an open house, I'll pack suitcases for Aaron and I to go to Haiti and for the boys to go to TX and stay with grandparents, I'll hopefully make it to Tina's bible study, and have lunch with the Shingleton's on Sunday while the house is showing. I'll also try to mow the lawn once before we leave and clean the house so that while we're gone it can show and hopefully sell! 6 more days!
AMAZING, AMAZING…I am loving it, and yes, I can imagine meeting your child for the first time…..It is incredibly incredible!!!! You guys are so blessed and each time I see an updated photo of Amos and Story….I think, can it please be almost time for their Mommy and Daddy (you and Aaron) to bring them home!!!!
Keeping you all in thoughts and prayers,
Amos’s smile! Love it! Story is cute in pink! I hope you have a great trip. I’m already looking forward to pics!
On another note that might be of interest to your readers, today is World Malaria Day. At nothingbutnets.net, there is a free online game that people can play. Doing so, one long lasting mosquito net will be donated to a person(s) in Africa.
I can not imagine how excited you and Aaron must be. I will be praying for you all. Amos and Story are the cutest . I can not wait to see you on your “gotcha day”. I go to lori and licia blogs often and pray for them. I do not know them, but I can tell from their blogs the love they have for the work they do. I am praying for safe travel and that the kids just fall in love with that wonderful husband of yours. The love you two show for each other on your blogs is wonderful. Safe travel my friend. I can not wait to see the rest of your journey.
