Today my mom and I head back to Eastern Europe. I woke up this morning with just a terrible headache. I am really struggling with my emotions the last couple days. I think I'm tired. I want this to be over. I want Ember to be home and my family to be all together.
I am so glad that my mom and I are taking an extra day at the start to see some of what Ember's country has to offer. There are some beautiful and historic sites and I am grateful we will get to experience some of that. Monday night we will catch our train and Tuesday we'll be in Ember's region. I can not wait to hold her. I can not wait to take her out of the orphanage forever. She is a precious jewel that is worth this effort.
Please pray that we have smooth travels - we only have a 35 min. layover when we arrive in Munich to catch our next flight. It isn't likely we'll make it but I have learned time and again that anything is possible!
Next post will be from the other side of the world! Ember, here I come.
