I don't really know what that title means either ... but similar to last post, it seems to fit! :)

WE GOT TENTATIVE TRAVEL DATES !!!! Our agency sent us an email today stating that we can plan to travel November 1st through November 7th. All I have to say is AAAAGGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! I'm so overjoyed, overwhelmed, over this waiting thing! :) While these dates COULD possibly change, we pray they don't. Would you please pray the following things over the next 2-3 weeks as we plan this trip :

1) That we would get through our court date as scheduled so we can actually travel on these dates. ( I do not know when our court date is scheduled, but I do know that our tentative dates are planned accordingly, as our agency knows when it is. Don't ask.)

2) That we would be able to use our frequent flier miles.

3) That we would be diligent in all that needs to get done for us to leave. (I'm a bit of a procrastinator, and that probably won't serve me well this month.) Pray that I have a clear head about all that needs to happen, and have the strength and energy and patience to actually do it.

I'll let you know if I think of anything else, because as I told you already, I'm on cloud nine! Meaning, mental clarity has not kicked in yet. I can't believe it's finally coming. We get to go get our baby!!!!!!!!!

WE ARE COMING MALACHI !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
