So close. That is where we are at in the process - so close! All we are waiting for is a phone call letting us know when we travel. Let me tell you - every time the phone rings my heart skips a beat.
I need to take this time to say "thank you" to so many people. We are so extremely grateful for everyone's support. I am so humbled at people's generosity. I want each of you to know how grateful we are. We don't take any of it for granted. We also could not complete this adoption without that support. I hope that I can be the type of parent to Ariya that she deserves.
As we get nearer to meeting her I would like to ask for continued prayers. Pray for Ariya - she will likely be very scared and not understanding what is happening and why. She will feel a great loss when we take her from all she knows. Pray for us - adding a nearly 12 yr. old with special needs, who does't speak or understand english will certainly not always be easy. I am sure there are going to be difficult times.
Thank you all so much! Know that every donation, every prayer, every kind word and thought is priceless to us.
