I just had a long post that disappeared giving you all updates on how life is going on in the Black house. I don't want to take the time to post it all again (ARGH!), but suffice it to say we are doing fine and riding on the excitement of that little princess Karl and I will get to meet in 11 short days (we leave in 9!) Life is quite stressful with all that needs to be accomplished in the next 9 days, but God has been so good and we are chipping away at things little by little. The nursery is GORGEOUS thanks to my sis and sis-in-law and our Saturday marathon. Selah's suitcase is mostly packed, and tonight I will go shopping to see if I can tackle some of the HUGE list of items I still need to buy.
This is all good since Karl leaves in the morning for a 3 day speaking retreat (back through the night in time for work Tuesday morning!) My wonderful husband is worse than I am, trying to get everyone at work up to speed for our trip since he is becoming the Campus pastor for our church's North Campus which starts its service 8 DAYS AFTER WE GET BACK!!! AHHHH!!!! Thank you all for your continued love, support, and encouragement. We TRULY cannot tell you how your kindness has lifted us up and made this entire adoption journey so much more amazing. We are SO THANKFUL to have you in our lives. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!!!!!
