... and we're off!!

We are in O'Hare airport... we left OKC this morning at 7:24... we leave Chicago @ 3:50... arrive in Germany 8 hours later... 7 hour layover.. then 6 hour flight into Almaty... 6 hour layover.. then 2 hour flight to Pavlodar...
we will arrive in Pavlador Sat. morning @ around 8 am... 36 hours after leaving OKC... (oh.. and did I mention that we did not sleep ONE wink last night.. my mom didn't either...)... whew..

It feels like it's not really happening...
Leaving the girls was WAY harder than I ever dreamed... it was AWFUL!

We are in shock.. it's amazing.. we've waited and trusted God for 3 years. and wow.. it's happening..
I have an incredible story/moment to share that happened during the first 10 minutes of our flight... God is truly with us and the girls and he reminded me of that very thing... I will share the entire story soon... :)

Lanetta, please try to get sleep as much as you can. And, even though it sounds silly, drink some gatorade if you can get it before you get to Kaz. They don't have it there! So excited for you! Can't wait to see you with your new little one!
Much Love!
