Misha and I will be flying home tomorrow. We are both so excited!!! Misha is very unhappy at having to get out of bed at 2:45 am in the morning. I am not particularly fond of getting up at that hour either, but it is worth it to go home. So, at 5:45 pm tonight central time we will be getting up to begin our journey to travel home. Our expected travel time is about 23 hours, plus we have to be at the airport a while before our flight. We will definitely be ready to be home when we get there.
It is absolutely amazing how God has shown His Glory through this process. Those of you local to me will get to hear more of the story than has been posted on the blog, more details about how the hand of God was so visible throughout the entire process of being here and adopting Misha into our family. God loves orphans and He loves families. It is God's will that families welcome orphans into their home and provide them with a loving environment and a stronger future than they have in an orphan system. Not everybody can or should adopt, but everybody can help children in need. You don't even have to go to another country if God is calling you to help children in your own local area. There are orphans in every country on this planet who need loving families to provide for them and teach them all the things that parents normally teach their children. They need the love of Jesus to help them learn to be a Godly man or woman, and to help them deal with their past hurts that still cause them to suffer each day. I am so blessed to be chosen by God to serve him by opening my heart and my home to a child with no parents. If you have any questions about this process that I can answer for you I will be more than happy to do so.
Thank you for the support and encouragement you have given me through this entire process. See you soon!!!
