... that's how I'd describe this meeting. Oh so AMAZINGLY happpy for us but so sad for Sarah to let go of all she's ever known. It was a pretty tough goodbye for both Sarah and Mama Ana.
One last picture with a very precious mama! It cracks me up how every time we come to visit, they always put her in the dress we sent down. It's just so sweet!
Things are going smoothly as far as flights on time, accommodations are good and Embassy appointment on schedule. Sarah definitely seems uncomfortable with these new surroundings but mostly is fussy because she does not feel very good at all. Ana handed me 3 different medicines and PTL there was an American standing there that could help interpret the instructions for us a little! She doesn't seem to mind all our kissses and hugs but it's going to take some time for her to really see us as mommy and daddy.
We are enjoying meeting other adopting American families but quite surprised at how many do not seem to be believers. They seem puzzled when I explain that the Lord is how we ended up adopting from Guatemala... like we're superstitious or something ?! Praying the Lord will give us opportunities to share the gospel!
Please pray for Sarah's health... this transition seems much harder on her because she's so sick. We love you all and are so grateful for your love and support!! It means so much! More later...
