Hello hello hello teacher friends!!
So I have been extremely busy these last 10 months because I have been preparing to adopt our new son from Uganda!
The road has been long and exhausting. But every time I think it gets too hard, I remind myself of the happy ending that is soon to come! And I remind myself that I have been working on this for 10 months, but my son has been waiting for a mom for 7 years!
Because of my adoption agency's policies, I am unable to share any specifics about the process or about our son until we are back home safe in the states. I will say that he has this picture of our family and he is so, so, so excited to have a mom and dad!
But, I can say that very soon the five of us will be boarding a flight to Uganda!! My husband will stay for about 10 days. My children and I will stay for as long as it takes for us all to be able to fly back home. I have been told this will be at least 2 months, but likely longer.
We are so fortunate that we are able to stay this entire time. I am going to be homeschooling our children. And because I work solely on the internet, I can work from Uganda! The kids are very excited about working in the orphanage and learning about their brother's culture.
As you can imagine, the cost to fly 5 people to Uganda, stay in country for several months, and then fly 6 people back is not cheap. And the cost along the way has been high as well. We are nowhere near wealthy, but we just keep pushing our way through the process. We refuse to use the excuse, ‘We can't adopt because we can't afford it.' And for the past 10 months, God has made a way to pay every bill that has come our way!!! It truly is incredible!! He is so much bigger than our bank account! 🙂
