Eagles Nest... here we come!

WE'RE REALLY GOING!! I'm finally going to meet my baby!! Alright, all you Eagles Nest mommas.... give me your advice, your lists, or whatever else you have to share concerning "visit trips" : ) And don't forget to let me know your baby's birth names so we can take pictures for you!! You can e-mail me at dm.gross@juno.com

We were supposed to go on our visit trip in January before Emily was born but with all my pregnancy complications our plan didn't come to fruition. However, I'm so glad the Lord's plan always prevails because Sarah is old enough now to really interact with us.

Honestly, I had no anxieties leaving Emily(she'll be 11wks. when we go plus she's a breast-fed baby) until we purchased the airfare.... then I was filled with all sorts of fears. After the last few years of God's dealings in our lives, I've become a pro at recognizing fear is NOT from God. So every time it rises up in my spirit I can confidently rebuke the temptation. Isn't it WONDERFUL to serve a God we can fully trust?!?!

How exciting! We didn't make a visit trip prior to our pick-up trip so I don't have much advice...other than love, love, love on that baby! Take lots of pictures too!

How exciting!!!!!! Just take lots of outfits and different colored pieces of fabric to lay behind Sara so that you can take lots of beautiful pics. I treasure the ones I took of Sophie while we visited. It helped for me to remember that I would never get those moments back with Sophie if I didn't go. So hang on to that and just love, love, love on her. Also take a Spanish/English dictionary :)

I will email you my list later and I also had a post on my blog awhile back regarding ideas of what to take from others. You will love your time with her!
