I am starting to freak out a bit...we've been waiting for four months now for "the call..." That's not a long time to wait in the grand scheme of things, but we have been lead to believe that the call could happen any day now. This is exciting and terrifying at the same time. Of course, I am excited that years of heartache will begin to melt in seeing the sweet face of our child. But, the unknown is keeping me up at night!!! I'm scared about the call coming. While it's going to be the best call of my life we're going to have very little time to approve the proposal, book tickets to Russia, have a week's worth of lesson plans ready to go, pack, buy gifts (cause you better believe I'm not meeting my baby empty handed....), figure out finances, figure out what we're going to in Russia, I worry about what could happen while we're there...when I really begin to think about it, I start to shake!!!! I'm most scared about how I'm going to get back on the plane to come home without my baby...I can't even stand to think about that.

I am asking for your prayers...prayers for our sweet boy who we have yet to meet, for those taking care of him, and for us as we navigate such unknown waters.

I'll keep you all updated.

Oh sweet girl, my heart shakes with you when you write about all these unknowns! I wish there something, anything we could do to help make it easier. Please tell me if there is!!
I will be praying, of course! I can't wait to hear that "the call" has come!!
To steal the words you recently offered to me, hang in there...
