24 hours after getting "the call" we were on a flight heading south to meet our son! The kids were so excited to meet their baby brother, but let's be real, they were more excited to ride in a plane for the first time 😉
We arrived in Charlotte late after several delays and carseat problems. We were BOUND and determined not to let the devil get in the way of us meeting our son. Our kids were troopers and did so well with being up SO early for our morning flights. For some reason, out of all weeks there happened to be a HUGE blizzard coming to NC within the next 24 hours. Yes, I said that right, a blizzard in NC. 😳 We joked that we were just taking SD with us so our son would know what real life was going to be like! 😜
We drove to our host home (the SAME host family we had with Jerik) and could NOT wait to see them again. They were so excited to have us, meet our other kids, and experience JOY with us again. It was beautiful to see how God had a plan through it all and watching the puzzle pieces come together was a little overwhelming for this mama.
We all slept SO good and were up bright and early to get ready for the day. We had two bedrooms upstairs to stay in and I remember walking over to my kids' room to peek on them. This would be the LAST morning we would wake up as a family of 5 and I couldn't wait to see their faces when they met their baby brother for the first time. The hours could not pass fast enough!
Hi, I'm Kansas! I wish we could be doing this face to face over coffee. Maybe someday, till then this will have to do!
