So if you are still wondering why we are trying this - I promise if you watch these videos you will at least understand why we are doing this!
I have been thinking about this. When you are pregnant you look forward for nine months to see your baby, to see your baby look at you, to hear your baby cry, to see the first smile and giggle, to see their personality, to see the first roll over, the first time they sit up, to see the first crawl, the first step. I feel like I'm still pregnant....I'm still waiting. I have been waiting for all these things with Dillon for three years plus the nine months. I am praying this trip will allow me to have one of these "first" with Dillon. To have him look at an object like Dakota, or to improve enough to be able to be mobile, or to look at my face and know that I am his Mommy, or something!
We are getting very very close, we are continuing to go head with the plans for leaving July 28th. We don't have all the funds yet, but if God brought this much in so far He isn't going to leave us hanging. This means we leave in 22 days! I am getting nervous, but I keep reminding myself of the song lyrics, "The Will of God won't lead you where the Grace of God can't keep you!" and I KNOW God is leading us to China....
