Then some last minute details, last minute laundry and packing and then homework. Put the kids to bed (there WILL be tears - especially from Kaley who desperately wants to go with me). Then last minute preparations. Hope to get in bed some time before it's time to get up. Head out the door at 3:50
We'll be in Chicago for a few hours waiting for Aunt Shari to arrive from Denver. Then we'll hit that plane and get to Beijing - arriving at 4:25pm Beijing time on Nov 11. (3:25am Tampa time if I've done my conversions correctly). Eat, shower, crash.
Then the real adventure begins. I'm so overwhelmed with the details of trying to get there and the details of trying to keep my kids and hubby safe here that I've not had a whole lot of time to invest in the details of the new orphanage home. (Probably a good thing because every time I do, I get the feeling that I am soooooo in over my head.)
I'll be trying to blog feelings here. If it's not blocked. My friend Sherri will also be trying to post for me if I can't. I'll also be putting some things up on the regular website of destinyshouse.com/bethgore.html ... there will be a link there to the pages.
Thanks for all the prayers and the support! This truly needs to be a team effort!
Love to all, Beth
