Off We Go!

It's so hard to believe that the time has come. We are leaving tomorrow! Since I don't know if I'll be able to blog tomorrow (I might give it a try on my phone at the airport), I thought I'd say a quick farewell to the good 'ol USA on here:

Goodbye, kitties!
Goodbye, air conditioning!
Goodbye, ice cubes!
Goodbye, memory foam mattress!
Goodbye, garden!
Goodbye, American friends!
Goodbye, dryer!
Goodbye, pool!

We'll see you again in a month (or three weeks, Lord willing).

Ok, on to more serious matters...I know this trip is going to be tough. I have no delusions about that. It is going to challenge me in so many ways and I will probably have a breakdown or two (or three). What I ask of you, my dear bloggy readers, is to PRAY PRAY PRAY for us everyday we are in country, and PLEASE leave us comments of encouragement on here. I can't tell you how much those comments keep me going sometimes.

You could specifically pray for:
~~~Quick adjustment to the heat/lack of AC.
~~~Staying healthy
~~~Resting in our down times (instead of impatiently waiting for the next thing)
~~~That we are able to find and buy all we need while we are there
~~~For Rob and I to have patience with each other :)
~~~A good internet connection everywhere we stay
~~~The opportunity to go to Vorzel
~~~For quick bonding with Lily

I'll add more specific prayer requests as they come up. Thank you all so much! I'm off to go finish packing :)

We're another family hoping to adopt with RR and we're interested in a little boy at the same orphanage as your Lily. We've been praying for you and will be praying through your whole trip! We are so happy for your family!

Praying all goes well!

Hint, you can bring an ice cube tray with you and fill it with bottled water. Works great! :-)

Can't wait to see photos of Lily in your arms!
