Only 10 more days!!

Aaaah! I'm having panic attacks! Only 10 more days! We were planning to have our son Matthew (he's almost 20) fly with Tom, to Bulgaria, to help bring his new brothers home. But without even saying a word to us he backed out.

So Gabriel our precious son who is 16 volunteered to go with Tom. Thank goodness we got him a passport back in May! It cost $200 to re-book the ticket and the plane only had 3 seats left. Praise God we could do this. Gabriel is very very excited to see his new brothers and help Dad. After all this is not about us, it is about Paul and Julius! Satan take that!! These boys will come home! Praise God!

Gabriel is my best helper at home. He helps with the dogs. He cooks with the crock pot. Helps with meals. He cleans. He's very responsible. Our daughter Hope is coming home to help me while he's gone! :o) I'm really going to miss Gabe.

Julius & Paul will be home before you know it!


  1. Your Gabriel sounds a lot like our Daniel, Elizabeth! He'll be 16 the beginning of next month. I'd miss him something terrible if he was gone that long, too!

    I'm so excited that you are this close to getting two of your guys home!

  2. I am very sorry to that Matthew has backed out one day he will realized what he has missed out on, it would have been a great experience for him. Gabriel is a true blessing!

  3. It's probably for the best, he is not living as a Christian.

  4. I'm sorry for the stress of the last minute change, but it sounds like it will be an amazing experience for your Gabriel. He will have a connection with your new little guys in a way few people get to have..being there to help them through those first transition days. Prayers for Tom and Gabriel on this trip...prayer for all you to these final stressful days of preparations. Blessing, jennifer


I love comments :o) so please be kind! (((HUG)))
