We'll be in Eastern Europe! Our SDA appt. to receive Ember's official referral is scheduled for May 24!! In less than a month we will be meeting our daughter for the first time! It looks like we will be leaving for her capital city around May 21 and once we get her referral we will be able to travel to her region and actually get to see her. I am so excited. I am so nervous! Suddenly it seems like I have so much to worry about!
I also get choked up when I think about leaving my other kids for 2 1/2 - 3 weeks. I will miss them so much! I will be missing my oldest son's graduation from the 8th grade. Not a huge deal in the grand scheme of life, but to him it is a big deal. We'll also be missing this same son's 14th birthday. I know he understands, but it still makes me sad. We'll have to celebrate a bit early!
Then there is my middle boy. My precious 12 yr. old. He is not at all in favor of this adoption. Change doesn't come so easy for him. Please pray that he will welcome Ember without reservation. I do worry about him.
We could use so many prayers now. Ember could also use the prayers. Her little world is going to be turned upside down! Oh goodness I just can't wait to scoop her up and soothe her worries away.
