After tonight I will have THREE days until I’m seeing Amos & Story. Oh my goodness folks this is crazy! I might be starting to officially freak out tomorrow! We’ll see though!
I received my malaria pills, got my last shot for HEP B, got a wart taken off my foot, and the stuff is laid out in organized piles to go into a suitcase. Yeah haven’t figured out what suitcase yet but we’re working on it.
I will be taking care of two children next week that do not know me. I have never met them before. They have never been around me and I will be their care taker. I’m so nervous and yet so excited! I know we will have our hard moments, but I’m praying for some sweet moments between Amos and I. I pray that God allows his heart to be open to mine. I pray that God molds my image into his head. I pray that his heart feels the love that I will pour out to him next week. I pray that Story sleeps well at night and that we are able to snuggle lots and do lots of gazing into each others eyes.
I will hopefully be meeting Story’s momma and I could not be more excited and nervous about that as well. I will NEVER forget the first time I met Deacon’s first mom. She had given birth to him the night before and we met in her hospital room. It was the most awkward 15 minutes of my life, but it was the start of a great relationship and friendship between her and our family. I pray for the same thing as I meet Story’s momma. I pray for her health, her emotions, her children and her heart.
Have I mentioned that my flight leaves at 6:15 on Tuesday morning. Do you guys know what time I’ll have to be at the airport? Probably when it opens!!! BUT I will be in Haiti around 1 and that is fantastic. I wanted to spend as much of my travel day with Amos as I could!
