Today has been a GOOD day! I was really down this morning but as the day went by, I kept getting more good news. So, we did not go to the Embassy today BUT we have an email invitation to come for our visa appointment on Thursday morning! This is GOOD! We also have been given a verbal confirmation that we will have the visas in hand on Monday. This is very good & we are praying it will all go smoothly. Hint! Hint! Please pray! :)
So, we will be up very early Thursday am. to get to our appointment on time. I have matching t-shirts for the three boys so they can have a tangible, physical marker to feel we are going in as a REAL family - unified. Maybe it sounds lame, but I am really excited about it.
If all goes well, we are hoping to have the boys' "Goodbye to Beacon House Prayer Ceremony" on Friday. Mark & I are flying out next Tuesday night & then John & Luke & Nathan will leave Wed am. Try as we might, we can NOT get our tickets all together, so Mark & I will arrive in Charlotte six hours before the rest of the gang. Oh well, I will take a few snags. I will just be so thrilled to get my little guys home!
So, tomorrow is hopefully going to be our last "regular" day of just visiting our boys. I am hugely thrilled to be getting close to their coming home date, but I am realizing, more & more, how TERRIBLY I am going to miss many of the other children at BH. I'm telling you, they are precious, precious & they definitely own a slice of my heart now.
How many kids can I adopt, Lord? :)
