3 days till we leave

Well it is 3 days till we leave Tauranga for our journey to Vladivostok Russia.  I am starting to get serious butterflies in my stomach now.

For those of you of my friends who are the praying kind and have asked me what to pray for, these are a few things:

  • We will know the right decision on choosing what child is right for us/have a peace
  • Safe travels, flights all connect and bags won't get lost
  • our kids that are left home especially Chanel who doesn't understand whats going on will be safe and happy
  • A smooth process
Those are kind of the main areas I guess on my mind.

Thanks for all the love and support , it so makes a difference  xxxx

Quick Update

Well it is all finally happening, we are leaving in a week (28th October) to meet our referral.
There is so much to get organized and so much emotional energy involved in this.  I haven't slept properly for days, all mostly excitement.
It will be so nice when we are home again, and can actually tell people.  I can say this, we are still laughing about the referral, quite a curve ball.
So this is a bit more excitement and intrigue with it than we thought :)

We have NEWS!

Well I am super excited that we actually have a referral as of this morning.  We are not allowed to know who as yet because it has to be approved by social welfare, but in a few days we should see ??? face.
At the moment we do know gender and age, and nationality.  So we will have another little asian face in our family.  (sorry we can't give details)
Travel all going smoothly, will mean we have to be in Russia in three weeks.  We are very relieved and happy, that soon ???? will be un-orphaned, and we will blessed with another child.  Happy days!!!
