This morning Tom left for trip number 4 to our favorite Country~ Bulgaria!!!
God Bless Bulgaria! The birth place of our most handsome Princes! Noah, Moses, Jacob, Julius and Pauly!
Unfortunately, Tom's flight was again.............cancelled. Today it was because of tornadoes on the East Coast! (we pray no one was hurt)
This is getting crazy! Stewardesses on strike, tornadoes.
But Tom aka our frequent flier will get there by Sunday 4 p.m. With his side kick (of 2 trips) Gabriel. :o)
We planned for Tom to be there a day early. "Just in case"! But that didn't work. So we tried to get him there on time! Nope, that didn't work either.
However! He will be there IN time Lord willing!!
Tonight I saw a Volcano on the news ...........NO!! It's in Nicaragua, so hopefully it will not affect flights or hurt any people.
I AM SO EXCITED!! Only 6.......count them~1-2-3-4-5-6 days and I will KISS my boys!! Hold my babies!
However if there are any further delays. We will survive it because they ARE on their way HOME!!
We have plead our case with a few agencies about committing to a daughter. No luck. We've seen so many girls we would consider adopting. There is still one agency that said they'd talk to us about a girl, after the boys are in our house. So we plan to talk to them after our Social Worker visits on the 20th. We've worked with our HomeStudy agency for 34 years, they did 10 adoptions for 13 of our 16 adopted children!! Thank goodness they have confidence in us!
It seems odd to us that a family who adopted 2&3 boys, a year apart would now run into this. It wasn't like we brought 5 home at once, and it would be a year from now before our daughter would come home. Plenty of time for 3 boys to adjust. This trip we are more prepared than the last. We know better how they will grieve, adjust, relapse in behaviors, grow, and learn.
Please pray for Tom, Gabriel and the boys as they travel!
