Or at least the one Corey and I have been eagerly anticipating for about a year now…..
WE GOT OUR COURT DATE!!!!!!
What does this mean? Well, it means that we’ll travel to Uganda, stay for 8 weeks, then if all goes well, come home with our little girl!! We. are. ecstatic. And nervous. Well, I’m nervous. Corey is just excited, plain and simple :).
We’ll be traveling in November (so soon!!), which means Thanksgiving and Christmas in Uganda. With our daughter. I cannot describe how happy I am that we don’t have to spend another holiday without her. This happened at the very best time. It also was about the time when I was feeling the most hopeless, so it was welcome news.
There is one area that we could use your help. We have worked really hard to be able to afford this adoption. We’ve picked up overtime at work as we could, cut back in every area we could think of, we kept a tight budget while we were going through this process. But we’re pretty much to the end off what we can do. We need help with the last little bit. Would you consider contributing to our travel fund? We’re looking at flights to and from Uganda, and then accommodations and travel expenses while we’re in country for about 8 weeks. We’ve set up an account where you can give a tax-deductible donation to help us meet this need. Go to https://www.adopttogether.org/harts and click on the green “Donate Now” button on the right side of the page.
What we need even more than money though, is your prayers. Please pray that things go smoothly and there are no hold-ups while we are in country. Pray that our daughter will be comfortable with us and that the initial bonding phase would go well.
We so appreciate everyone that has walked this road with us. You support, prayers, and encouragement have meant so much to us, and at times has carried us when things got hard. Thank you.
Next stop: Uganda!!
