Ready, Set, Go!

We are officially ready…well as ready as you can be for parenting! The house is clean (as clean as it is going to get). Our house has toddler friendly items for the bath, play, sleeping, eating, etc. Our bags are packed full of little girls’ outfits, toiletries, shoes, etc. We are worn out (even this is getting us ready for what lies ahead).

We found out today that we should be picking up our daughters on Monday and have them with us the rest of the week! Starting out parenting in a foreign country and different hotel rooms will be quite interesting. We hope and pray that we are able to comfort and help the girls through this HUGE transition. We know that there will be some hard moments, hours and days…but we are so thankful that WE get to be parents to THESE two girls…the daughters that God has blessed us with!  We would appreciate your continued prayers! Here are some pictures of all that is waiting for our girls at home. We ordered some artwork for the girls’ room that hasn’t arrived yet and need to make some finishing touches, but it is ready enough.
