6 Sleeps From Tonight...

do you know where we will be???  When we have something really fun and exciting coming up in our home, we count down by sleeps!  So, from tonight just 6 sleeps and we will be on a flight to Ivan's country!

I am full of so many emotions that it is hard to even put it in to words.  Please continue praying for us!  We obviously still have the giveaways going on and many preparations to make to leave our children for a week.  Lots to do and keep up with....all well worth the prize:)

I have never ever felt the consuming love of the Father by way of His people as I have during the beginnings of this journey.  This has been the hardest decision we have ever made and we have felt every bit of the weight of it...we have provoked the enemy a bit too, I might add.  I have said it over and over the last 6 months, BUT GOD!  He has called us to this and He will complete it. I can't see the details and I can't see the fullness of His handiwork yet, but I know my God to be faithful and sovereign!

Thank you...every single hand, every single dollar, the sweat, the tears shed for and with us, the sacrifice of time and money, the encouragement...all for one tiny little guy that has never known the love of a mom or dad, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, grandparents.  Ivan has known a crib and he has known caregivers.  Someday very soon, he will know the feel of hands that will linger as they hold his face and eyes that will look deep into his and he will hear the words I love you.  We will tell him how wonderfully and perfectly God made him. 

And none of that would ever happen without all of you!  Thank you for being on this journey with us and thank you for your sacrifice.  We can never ever repay all of you!  We love you, each and every one of you!  Thank you for loving our son as the Father loves us!  You are all part of Ivan's story!
