Like right now.
God has spoken to us LOUD and CLEAR that He means to get us home ASAP. We don't know why, but we're going with it.
We need you to lift us up in prayer. Here is our intended schedule for the next three days (and also the reason why I most likely won't be blogging):
Thursday: Morning~go to orphanage, sign documents, close bank account, pick up Lily. Afternoon~Drive to Kyiv (typically takes four hours). We MUST make it to Kyiv by 4pm for our U.S. Embassy appointment!
Friday: Morning~Visa medical appointment. Afternoon~Pick up Visa
Saturday: Fly out of Kyiv at 6:45am! Please, PLEASE pray that we get bulkhead seating for the trans-atlantic flight. This is CRUCIAL!!! And with such late notice, maybe impossible.
Please pray for everything to go smoothly. Pray that Lily is a good traveler. Pray that we can figure out what she eats and get her to eat (all while traveling, of course). I am nervous, so nervous. I thought we would have about 5 days with her to figure her out before we had to travel so much. But God has a bigger plan, clearly! Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to be going home this fast.
I'll update as much as I can. Here we go!
