What an awesome God we serve.......we are coming home !!!!!! I have waited so long to write this blog. It's funny because I have layed in bed at night and thought about what I would like to say when the time comes and now I don't know how to put it into words. Well it's here we got the VISA and we are coming home.
God granted us such favor with all whom we came in contact with today. We started out very early this morning at the lawyers office getting final affidavit signed by Monica and then it had to be notarized. Left there and headed to DHL office to pick up documents that we needed to make this day possible, and wouldn't you know it, the documents were there waiting on me.
From there we traveled to the Embassy, where my heart pounded and I just continued to pray for favor. Mr.Flook looked at all our documents, had me raise my right hand and swear to the best of my knowledge these documents were true and correct. Thank God they were..... next he called Monica in for questioning, she was amazing as always, answered questions as best she could. The last thing I remember hearing him say is I will call you tomorrow and tell you what time you can pick up your VISA.
I could not get to the car quick enough to call Scott. He was very excited but half asleep, when I spoke with him a bit ago he was wondering if he had been dreaming........no dream babe we're coming home.
I am so grateful to all of you who have shared in this process with us. So many of you have done so much, from helping with the kids, to praying, to flying over to be with me. Bridgett and Bre I honestly would not have come out of this sane without you two. Dan and Matt thank you for sharing your wives with me, I know it wasn't easy.
Glenda and Cecil thank you for the countless hours you have spent with my children making sure there life stayed as "normal" as possible. Glenda thank you for all the work you have done in Bennett's room, can't wait to see it. Mom, thank you for all the money you have sent to keep me functioning daily....I think you and Glenda are probably getting close to spending as much on this adoption as Scott and I have. :) You know I love you and I will pay yall back (wink).......Mom thanks for the many calls in the middle of the night to cheer me up......I hope I never hear "Get Over It" again..........I cried while I ate the many bags of candy you sent, I think I have gained about 10 pounds since I have been here.
I am also so grateful to all wo have sent emails and blogged, you will NEVER know what those meant to me. I hung on every word, your messages are what I looked forward to everyday. This computer has been my life line.
Scott, Colt, Haley and Hannah thank you for your sacrifice's, I know it has not been easy on any of you. But I praise God for the beautiful family He has blessed me with.........Bennett is well worth it. Kids get ready for your heart to be captured.
Most of all thank you Pastor Dickson and Glady's (Abwooli), without you none of this would have been possible. Because of your obedience to God and your sharp ear to hear and to respond, my family has been forever blessed. My son is alive and coming to America. I love you two and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Not much more I can say but...........Leavin on a Jet Plane..............see you Wednesday at 2:00.
Sherry and Bennett
