After 24 hours of craziness trying to find the best deal—we booked our tickets! Unfortunately, we aren’t able to use our SkyMiles…but the cupcake fundraiser we did perfectly covers my ticket and Isaac’s…so we are good! My mom and my sister will be traveling with me to help with bottle making, picture taking and of course lovin’ on babies at the orphanage (because we all know this momma is not putting Isaac down or letting anyone hold him for awhile;). I sure enough have a rockin’ momma and sister to pay their ways just to HELP ME and serve…I feel so blessed and thankful!
Y’all go ahead and smile, wink and giggle because Rico Suave (that’d be Rich…the hubby) has insisted on staying behind to keep our 3 children here on their schedules and in their normal routines to make for a smooth transition for Mr.Isaac. He feels called to play Mr.Mom for 7 days…and I have a feelin’ he’ll have a blast—but this role I play will be well appreciated upon my return I have no doubt. And since Frank is going through a bit of seperation anxiety these days—this will keep Frank from being too clingy upon my return making Isaac’s transition easier too (we hope!).
Sooooo…the tickets are booked and we leave in less than 17 DAYS! On June 27th…Isaac T. Young will be in my arms and on July 2nd we’ll be united as a family of SIX! This. Is. REALLY. happening!!!! I’m just so overjoyed and THANKFUL! Am I sure this is earth and not heaven? I get to be a mommy of four beautiful children?! I get to stay at home and love on them every day?! PINCH! PINCH! PINCH! Nope, I’m NOT dreaming! It is really happening!
Now…time for a Babies R Us run to get formula, baby food, bottle liners, new bottles…oh this is gonna be a fun couple of weeks getting ready! Isaac, my love, we can’t wait to get you home!!! It won’t be long now! This will be your LAST month in the orphanage…YOU ARE COMING HOME!!!!!
