UNBELIEVABLE!

A sweet little dress...



just waiting...




... for a sweet little girl!!
I can't believe it! That's all my mind keeps saying!! Found out today that we were supposed to be at our Embassy appointment at 7:15 am THIS MORNING. We should have gotten our "pink slip" last Thursday while Dave was still in Guatemala but they sent it to the wrong email address! They spelled our last name in the address with two "o"s instead of two "s"s. Just unbelievable... to think Dave would have been able to be with me to bring her home. How one typo can radically change your plans floors me. Yet, we continue to trust in the sovereignty of God!
The good part is we were able to reschedule our appointment for next week and this roller coaster(which was beginning to make me sick) will finally be over! The GLORIOUS part is Sarah is COMING HOME!!!!!! Thank you Lou and Leah for alerting me to possible problems with our pink slip... who knows how long we would have waited! Again, the sovereignty of God!

Oh my goodness - that is SO hard -but I am thankful she is COMING HOME! It was great to meet David and the team at EN. When things settle down for you - we'll have to chat - I read your bio and it so resonated with what God has been teaching me lately!
Have others from the group had any kind of cold viruses? I have a HORRIBLE sore throat and fever thing going on!

I am so glad you guys are getting to go now. You are wise to keep reminding yourself of God's sovereignty. Shows once again that man makes his plans but the Lord is the one directing the steps. The testing of our faith produces endurance and I would say that it was not lost in this experience with you guys. To God be the glory!

Marianne,
I am so glad everything FINALLY got figured out for you guys. I am so thrilled to actually meet you 2 (even if it will be just in passing at the airport)! Finish packing, and go get that girlie!

Okay- I think that I actually felt sick when I read the part about the appointment being this morning. I'm so glad that God is not surprised and that he is all knowing. He has all these little details worked out and knew the exact day that Sarah would be coming home.

Sorry to hear about the first embassy appointment mishap but praising God for pink and that the next step in this journey is begining.

Congratulations!
