One day to go...

I can't believe we are one day away from leaving for Ethiopia. The emotions are overwhelming. The packing is overwhelming. Life is overwhelming. I'm sad to leave my little kids for over a week. I'm excited to finally meet our baby boy. I'm dreading the long trip. I'm fearful of life with four kids. I feel blessed to be a mother. I'm terrified of the process of adjusting to our "new normal." I'm thrilled that this day is finally here. I'm humbled by the prospect of becoming a biracial family. I can't eat. I can't sleep. I'm a mess.

Still though...it is time to bring home this baby and I have peace in that. God has called us to this and, even in our trepidation, we are aspiring to be obedient. We've taken this process little by little and we'll just keep taking "baby steps" through the emotions until we are back in Atlanta with our new little man.

If you feel led, we would covet your prayers during this time.
