Packing for Ghana

I have started packing today (I know I still have 12 days before we leave but I couldn't help myself...truth be told I have been packing the girls' bags for months now). My mind is consumed with memories of Ghana and thoughts of what it will be like to meet our daughters for the first time and see my African angels again. Is this really happening? Am I really about to become a mother?

Janet let us know our girls are staying at her house right now and being taken care of. Their sisters were there too but school started up again so they headed back to school. I don't know how I will ever be able to thank this lady who helped us find our daughters and has been taking care of them until we can bring them home. She is truly our angel.

We have met many angels along the way and know we have been so blessed. I know this has been a long journey and I want to thank you all for being there for us along the way. Every comment, email, pray, hug, and thought that has been shared with us has been what has kept us strong and has reminded us of how completely blessed we are.

My heart has ached for Ghana ever since I left and I can't wait to step off that plane and feel that hot African breeze knowing my heart will soon feel whole again.

Don't forget our adoption fundraiser is this Saturday at Freestone Park. Optional Run/Walk starts at 7:00am. Silent auction goes from 8:00-10:00am and Live auction goes from 9:00-10:00am. Auction items include jewelry, clothes, furniture, Steve Young and Jerry Rice signed football, beach cruiser, many gift cards and so much more. We will also be having a flat screen T.V. raffle and food for sale. 100% of the proceeds go towards bringing Esther and Janet home. Thanks for all the support!!!

Tickets have been purchased!!!

So this is all starting to feel real now. We have our tickets and have started packing our bags. Only a few more weeks and we get to meet our daughters for the first time and get to see our other three little angels in Ghana. I have never been so excited for anything in my life...better the Disneyland. Thinking about getting to take our girls to Disneyland for the first time, might take the excitement level over the edge!!!

For those who want to be at the airport when Esther and Janet are welcomed home. We will be landing in Phoenix at 2:05pm on Friday, October 12....ONE MONTH FROM NOW!!!!!
