Due Date

After nearly six months I finally have a due date! We have a tentative court date of June 2nd, which will put us leaving on May 28th. This will be confirmed in a few days and then we will book our flights. We were told to specifically pray that there would be openings on the flight, especially the flight from London to Entebbe as these flights are usually booked solid. To say we are excited is an understatement, but the reality of all this is beginning to set in. I know the Lord has been preparing our hearts for this for a very long time, I hope He has been doing the same work in the children. I have so much to do to get prepared to leave. I have a long list that gets added to daily. We also have the added stress of leaving our business for someone else to run. I know that they are capable, but lets face it, they don't care as much about keeping it going as we do. We will also be leaving our children behind (with wonderful people who love them dearly) and this will be very difficult for us all. For our ten year anniversary Richard and I went on a five day cruise, day two we wanted our gang with us and missed them terribly. When Richard went to Uganda for three weeks a couple of years ago, it was hard for them, and I was still here. Please be praying for them to have peace. We still need about $5,000 too. Although this is really at the bottom of my list of concerns. The Lord did not bring us this far, to leave us short by so little. I know He will provide, this is His work and He will bring it to pass.

PS. Did I mention how excited we are??

Hello there! My name is Janet and we are in Kenya right now, finishing our adoption for our two children whom we got from Welcome Home! My sister found your blog on line and she sent me the link! We actually met your Melissa at the goodbye party for the children! I have a video of her, and she is adorable! When we get back home to Canada, I will e-mail it to you. Apparently, our daughter, Jeane, and your daughter were friends at the orphanage. Melissa kept coming up to Jeane and kissing her, and one of the mums told me that they were good friends. So I took video of her. It's not a long one, but I thought you might like it. If you'd like to e-mail me, I'd be happy to talk to e-mail address is:
