Nope, we aren't ready but we are going!

There is so much left to do!!!  It is already morning and i could stay up for another five hours and it still would not all be done. My mind is racing a mile a minute trying to think of all that i have forgotten!  I DO NOT FEEL PREPARED for this trip in that i have no idea if i packed what i needed to! Did i get it all?  What if i forgot something!?  Today was a MASSIVE fight of the heavenly forces, for sure!!!  SO....even though i have a million things to do...i wanted to make sure that i came on here to ask for your help! WE. NEED. YOUR. SERIOUS. PRAYER. like truly praying for us...not just thinking about us but stopping and praying specifically for our family who will be left behind and the one that is waiting and the parents who are so ready to bring him home that i wouldn't care if i forgot my pj's, shampoo, unmentionables, and even two outfits...we so cannot wait to have Ethan in our arms!
We are going to be meeting with a higher up government official while we are there...will you pray that we are wise, godly and say what needs to be said?  Our Sophina is going to be without her Mommy and Daddy....and the other girls may struggle even more than her...will you please pray for them?  Pray for Scott and i in this emotion packed eight days!  PRAY for the Lord's protection....not just physically either!
I cannot wait to figure out how to introduce you to our son using the gizmos and gadgets again!  We love and appreciate each one of you who have gone on this journey with us....the one that is now BEGINNING...we so so covet your prayers!  We are ALWAYS BLESSED, Connie for the crew


  1. Godspeed, not long now, hugs and prayers, Catherine, Vince & Nathan x

  2. Hey, I just wanted to say, so you can see this next time you get on, I've been thinking about you ALL DAY!!!! Like, I was sitting in class trying to learn about DNA cloning, an actually somewhat interesting lecture, but my mind kept wandering to you and Ethan and what it's going to be like bringing him home and how I wish I could be there, and EVERYTHING. It was one of the first thoughts I had this morning when my alarm went off (after NOOOO!!! and the smashing of the OFF button) :p and it's as if it's just now become real to me that you are ACTUALLY BRINGING HIM HOME!!!! FOR GOOD!!!! AND I WON'T BE THERE!!!!! But I am still happy for you!!!! But I wish I could be there! I don't know why it took so long for it to sink in...but it finally did and AHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So, anyways, I love you so much and am praying for you and you'd better take LOTS of pictures!!!!!
