“She smiled and said with an ecstatic air: “It shines like a little diamond”.
“What does?”, he asked.
Friends and family!! We booked our plane tickets and we’ll be heading to Haiti soon!!
Booking our tickets was such a sweet experience, y’all. Kevin and I called the airline (on speakerphone so we could both hear) and got the sweetest agent to help us. When I explained the reason we were calling, he got so excited and shared that his sister recently brought home his adopted nephew from Guatemala. He told us that seeing them come through the doors at the airport “was one of the best moments of his life” and that he “could just cry thinking about it again!”. 🙂
There weren’t very many seats left on the plane, but he found us three spots (on the same plane as the the Riehms!) and then filled us up with super kind and encouraging words. The whole experience felt like such a blessing. Such a Godwink!
I’m going to bring an iPad with me so I can blog a few times while we’re there, but I’ll probably post more regularly on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram since it’s easier to quickly upload snippets and pics there. Here are links to each of those accounts if you’d like to “come with” us:

Your enthusiasm and encouragement have made this adventure so much more fun, and we truly appreciate the prayers you have lifted up for us along the way!
I’ll be blogging on my regular schedule this week (5 Insta-pics post on Wednesday, Thought-Full Thursday, and a Bungalow Barn update on Friday), but I may have a bit of a wacky posting schedule next week. I’ve got a little bubba to go pick up. 😉
Funny how 3 years and 8 months into an adoption process you can feel like you’re finally at the beginning. 😀
