We're packed!!!! 4 more days!!! YAHOO!!!

We're packed!
We're taking 3 suitcases of donations! We have JAMMED these things FULL of diapers, bottles, pacies, nipples, formula, onsies, suckers, and much much more!
We would like to thank everyone for the generous donations!
Can't wait to see the sweeties who will receive these!
You guys are awesome!
Also, our VBS children raised $951.00 and donated it ALL to Ethiopia!!!
Wow!! God will bless that! We are so excited to see the great impact this $ will have on these sweet little orphans!
God is good! Way to go WBC KIDS and THANK YOU!!!

You wouldn't believe the stuff we were able to "roll" up and STUFF under all these shoes!

Look at all of this great stuff! We are hoping to purchase more for the children when we get there! Yay!!!!!

We have four suitcases, two carry ons and my purse and a laptop!
Hoping to keep you updated as best as we can!!

We covet your prayers at this time! We are so excited to be leaving, but also have many emotions. We are experiencing just about every emotion you can imagine right now! It will be so nice to be home on the fourth of July! What a day to bring home our sweet princess. Please pray for our boys as we NEVER leave them and will miss them terribly. Please pray that Lola knows we are her Mommy and Daddy the moment she lays her big, brown eyes on us. Pray for our flights, for good health, etc. Thank you to our family and friends that have prayed us through thus far! It's been a wild ride and we are sooo thankful for you!
Love you guys!
