We're coming Laurel!!!

It's here. Monday morning we'll be flying out to go visit our little girl. I can't believe this is really happening. It was less than a week ago that we got an email from our facilitator saying out appointment was this week- August 13th. We had asked for a later (by a month) date but the LORD saw fit to change things up a bit. Since then, we have been FLOORED by the compassion, generosity and love that has been poured out from our friends, church, community and family. Even people who we don't even know!! Please pray that the Lord's will be done in our life over there and that as our pastor's theme is year "LET THE LIGHT SHINE IN 2009!!"
We want them to wonder why so many American's want their special needs children. We want to be able to share the unconditional love of Christ with them.
Thank you so much who have followed on this wild ride so far with us. Hopefully they'll be lots more to come. Thank you to our wonderful church family who is so encouraging and praying for us!! Thank you even to the perfect strangers who don't even know us but believe in this cause.
We're coming baby Laurel!! Coming soon!! We will update everyone as soon as we get a good internet connection. Blessings!
