I apologize for leaving everyone hanging but the information has been changing by the hour with a lot of unknowns.
We are in a tight spot.....we had been under the understanding that we would not likely travel in early December and that we would more likely be traveling in January and would have more time to fundraise and/or get loans, grants etc.
We were completely unaware until yesterday that we could travel this soon!
I could be holding our twins in six days.......it just makes me ache thinking about it......
So, we've been hustling and inquiring about whatever we could possibly do.....including loans to make that happen.
And we thought we had the solution, but this morning there were more complications and delays..... which would still render it impossible to go because we need to make our decision today and make the plane reservations to leave on Saturday.
*AND* moreover we found out that if we don't leave on Saturday that we will have to wait until February to travel.
Two more months that they will wait.......two more months where anything could happen. It is extremely hard.
To truly understand me, I want you to imagine that two of your beloved children were in a country half way around the world from you. Imagine what you would do to get to them......and you have a chance to hold them and love them by Monday, rather than waiting another two months with empty arms.......... and they with no family.
I came close to folding again this morning from so much recent discouragement, but I prayed for strength and prayed for the ability to have better knowledge of what to do and how to get them home. And, as I opened my eyes, I felt comforted.....and strong!
I don't know if we can give the twins a family for Christmas......I don't know if they will experience the love of devoted parents by Monday but I will try and I will pray for continued revelation from our Heavenly Father to know His will.
Today is the day that we have to decide......if anyone has thoughts or revelation or a desire to donate or help, you have no idea how much it would be appreciated.............
