It’s finally time! We’re heading out soon, like in 4 hours!! I can’t sleep and that’s a good thing since I had SO much to do!! Things are coming together nicely and hopefully I’ll be able to lay down for a few hours so I am not totally delusional by the time we make it to Detroit for our first layover.
Please keep us in your prayers!! For safety, but most of all for our first few days with Jude. Adoption is a wonderful thing, but it can be awfully hard on a little one.
Signing off from blogger for a while, we’ll be posting updates to Jude’s adoption website 🙂
