I'm going to see my baby;)

I have been aching for Christian.  Both Marc and I just miss him like crazy and keep praying that things move along in Haiti so we can bring him home.  We still have no idea when exactly that will be.

We'd been talking about visiting him again, but Marc is undergoing some job changes (that'll be a blog for another day;) and we don't know when he can get away.  I emailed our director to see who else would be traveling in the next couple months to see if there was a possibility to travel with another family (otherwise, it would be incredibly isolating and lonely at the guest house!).  I found out another mom is traveling...WITH our director.

In a quick turn of events, I immediately seized the invitation to join them, so in 9 days I get to see my baby boy again.  I will again keep the trip short.  I am hoping he's seen the book I left him enough times that his heart will welcome seeing me again.  I'll stay two full days with him again and then return home.  I have not yet decided if I will leave him at the orphanage or take him back to the guest house with me.  Because there will be other children from the orphanage at the guest house, it might be a good time to introduce that setting to him.  There will be familiar faces for him!

I am so excited, my heart is just soaring.  God is so so so good, both in providing an opportunity to see Christian through a VERY good deal on a flight (especially only 9 days before) and an opportunity to meet our agency director face to face and visit Haiti with her (though she'll be attending to much business while there;)

Thankful.  Thankful.  Thankful.


  1. Each new day is bringing you closer! So glad you'll soon be cuddling Christian and breathing in his sweet skin. Praying for all that's on your heart---both here and there. Love you, friend.

  2. So thrilled for you! Happy day and blessings to you as you prepare for the trip!
