God has reminded me that this is HIS timing not mine. I had other plans. I wanted it all wrapped up in a nice, neat package and have the room ready, all of the money raised, everything packed neatly etc..... But God knows the plans He has for us and they are GOOD plans!! Please pray as we embark on this journey. I've never been out of the country and needless to say am VERY nervous. We still aren't sure who will be returning to the country to pick her up. We are waiting to see how she reacts to us and how safe Mike feels with me being there.

It's really happening!! It really is!! We got our SDA Appointment date and it's August 13th!!! We are hoping to fly out sometime Monday. This was not at all our plan (of course). In our child specific petition we had asked to fly after August 27th but they ignored the petition. There is a chance they could change it but we have to fill out a new form, notarize it, appostille it again and UPS it ASAP to get to our facilitator. All this would have to happen before Thursday 13th and it takes AT LEAST 4-5 days for it to get to Ukraine with no issues! So, Monica was so wonderful to figure out somewhere else for Baby Connor to stay, we scrounged for our loan, we booked our flights and the journey begins!!
