Today is the one week mark before we go and things are going well. God has been doing some amazing things and really this WHOLE journey has been amazing. From little things to big things. One new thing that He has done is provided the perfect house for us in Kotido where we will be living. 2 weeks ago we got a call from our team telling us they couldn't find a house they thought would work well for us. They gave us two options and we choose one, but continued to pray that something better would come in store. One week later we get the call about that better house. WOW.....really? How exciting. Thank you God!
Another thing that has me smiling today is that I got to have an ultrasound of our baby today and to see my midwife. My lab results were all perfect which is nice because they were not that way with Carter. The baby is healthy and it was nice to see what is making me so sick :) (BTW....Thank you all for lifting me up in prayer about my pregnancy nausea and sickness. It has been getting better. I still have some bad days of vomiting but it is not everyday as before.)
The big question is how are we doing emotionally? For the most part wonderful (although for me I have been up and down). The kids are doing well and are excited to go. I am so grateful and proud of how well they have been doing. The hardest thing is saying goodbye to our family and friends. It is weird closing this part of our chapter, and saying goodbye to so much, but we know that God has new chapters for us in store.
Thanks for all your prayers and support!
Here's our little 13 weeks old peanut. Too bad we can't tell if it is a boy or girl yet. Guess we will have to be surprised.
