We leave on John's birthday!

I've booked our flights! We will be riding Delta, Aeroflot, and Co Donbassaero. Definitely a leap of faith I feel at this point. God, please get us there in one piece! Did I mention that I am afraid of flying?

I will be praying for you Christine. I am so excited for you and your family.


Connie said...

We are very excited for you :-) Will you be blogging on the go?

Having the tickets bought is SO exciting!!! It is real. I am SO happy for you!!! Just bring an eye mask, ear plugs and Tylenol PM, you'll be fine! =-)

andrea said...

sounds very exciting. it's a long flight but God will give you peace and calmness not only as you fly but when you can hold your son.

Kristen said...

I hate flying, too! Just take along a good crossword puzzle book. That's what I always do! Although that doesn't always beat the boredom.

Depending on your level of fear, you can take a
Tylenol PM or you can try Xanax (I did).

I am terrified of flying. Flying to Guatemala was the first time I'd flown in over 12 years. Someone recommended I take Xanax because it doesn't drug you, make you drunk or loopy. It takes away the anxiety/fear so you can function and relax. It was wonderful. You can call your doctor and tell them you have a fear of flying and have a long flight. They will usually phone you in a small prescription to get you thru.

I'm so excited & happy for you! :)

Do you have good books to read? I can send you a couple if you want!

By the way, for these posts to filter into RLC, you need to put the adoption journal blogger badge into each post! That way they'll feed!

love you and CAN'T WAIT!!! yipee,

Hi Christine

Don't worry about flying. I am terrified of it too but God will guide you and hold you as this is part of your life and meant to be. You will be safe.

What an amazing friend to have that is moving in while you are in Ukraine!

Annie said...

Well, it is real now, isn't it?

I'm excited - very, very excited for you.

Those friends who are planning to stay with the kids are saints. You are so lucky to have them!

I am a little late catching up on your news. Congrats on your travel dates. I am so excited for you to finally meet Dennis.

Chris and Virginia said...

Wow, I have just a few moments to catch up on a few blogs and I'm absolutely tickled with all this news!! How wonderful. I could almost feel your delight and panic at such a short notice trip. Our prayers will be with you and hope all goes well.

Your hearts are ready and there's no better time than the present.

We are so happy for you! We will continue to follow your family as you journey to Ukraine for Dennis. You are in our prayers! I wish I could be a fly on the wall at your first meeting of your dear new son!
God's blessings on your family!
Hopefully we won't be far behind.

Congratulations! I'm so very excited that soon he will feel his mama and papa's loving arms around him. Have a great trip!

Sira said...

You are in my prayers- what agency are you using?

Ashley said...

I am just ecstatic over all of this!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I can't wait to be able to post this on my blog! YEAH! I am so happy for you!

Karen said...

I can hardly imagine the anticipation you must be feeling to be finally going to get that dear sweet boy of yours!!! We are following your journey closely and will be praying you will especially be able to have peace about the flying.

Charissa said...

I am thinking about you every day and counting down the days!! I don't know why, but I just loved that boy the minute I saw him and I think I am as excited as you are! I want to mention him on my blog, if you would rather I not, please let me know, or if there is anything you'd rather I not say. His story touched me deeply and I can't think of a happier ending for him than to have a great mom and dad and 10 brothers and sisters!!

Martha said...

We're all afraid of flying! I can't wait to see your new videos when you come back! I'm falling in love with adoption.
