Another Airport Post


Once again, a blog post is coming from a hotel at the airport. Last time I did this, Renee and I were about to head off on an exciting adventure, picking up our boys in Ethiopia. We knew our life was about to change, but we had no idea just how much. Worried that they would not love us, or accept us. Wondering if we could really be the Mom and Dad we needed to be. But, we were so excited to begin the journey to our boys, knowing at the other end something amazing awaited us.
Now, once again we are at the airport. Once again, our lives are about to change. But this time the boys are in the bath-making a mess as only two boys can. But they are still the focus of our fears, and worries. Can they adjust to another culture, learn another language, say good-bye to their friends and family. How will two boys of color adjust to a country that is virtually color-less? Yes, Renee and I have lived in China before, and we know the culture and language. But it was different then, it was just us On and on the concerns come, but the one thing that we always come back to is this. Our designer gave us a dream, and a passion, and a vision. He gave us the kids we need, and we know He is always true. We know that we can rest securely in His promises, as He is who He says He is. So as we fly off tomorrow, think of us if you have a chance. We'll be the ones with a lot of luggage and some big carry on's, and two very tired boys.
