Almost home

Like cold water to a weary soul, is good news from a distant land. - Proverbs 25:25 We are over the freaking out of purchasing our plane tickets and now filled with joy that we see Etienne and Zeke in less than 2 weeks!!! Our flight leaves KC on Sept 5 and arrive in Kigali on the 7th. Ryan, Molly, Blake and I are going through hand-me-downs, assembling a bunkbed (for Blake and Etienne), trying to remember how to put the crib back together again, and counting our blessings. It is a very surreal, happy time. One of my good friends told me that I was acting like I was 9 months pregnant. I took that as a compliment! Yesterday I realized that neither Etienne or Zeke have probably worn shoes much, if ever. And I have no idea how big they really are, so I thought I'd search for crocs because they'd have more flexibilty with guessing a good fit.: We came to the realization that God has something HUGE going on for two little boys in Africa and for our family! The truck being broke and the lacking funds for travel were Satan trying one last ditch effort to throw a wrench into the miracle of Etienne and Zeke's homecoming.
