“Fly me away on an aeroplane
high in the sky…
….miles and miles of sun
Our bags our packed and sitting by the door and my stomach is a bunch of knots in nervous anticipation. We’ve been waiting for this day for so long.
So so long.
My hands are tingling and at any moment I might burst into tears in between the smile that I can’t seem to wipe from my face. It’s a flurry of excitement, a rewriting of todo lists. Checking and double checking we have everything we need. Today, husband man and I are heading out on a trip that will ultimately change our lives.
Tomorrow we will arrive in Uganda, Africa. We will be picked up by a dear man named Godfrey whom we love even though we have never met him. And then, then.
Then, tomorrow afternoon, Godfrey will take us to meet our son.
I keep trying to picture what it will be like to meet him in person. How he will feel in my arms.
I can’t seem to think straight and my heart is running a million miles a minutes.
We are so excited and nervous and happy…
there are simply no words for this feeling I have right now.
We're coming sweet baby boy. Mommy can't wait to finally hold you in these arms of mine. I love you bunches.
