Guess what we’re buying today?

November 1st, 2011

Katerina’s ticket to freedom!!

Yes, it’s true!  Our attorney confirmed our travel dates just now, and told us to go ahead and purchase our tickets.  We are thrilled that the dates did not have to be moved, and that we don’t have to ask Adam Boroughs to be in Katie’s country on Thanksgiving Day!

So as I write this, our travel agent is working on our final itinerary~

Flying out nine days from now, on Thursday, November 10th, and flying back with Katie on Saturday, November 19th.

    I’m so excited for you!  I’ve never commented on your blog before, but I’ve been following you guys for awhile, and have been praying for you and your sweet family!  I will be praying for your preparations over the next 9 days, your time in Katie’s country, and everything that follows!  What a blessing to know that God is good and sovereign in all things!

    Such good news! I suspect there are some many others counting the days with you! I loved your post about carrying all of this on your shoulders…isn’t that what we momma mistakenly do so often?  God is here, God is all over this experience.  I pray you continue to share the workload with God and others!

    Susanna, I’m a subscriber through Google (and an acquaintance from Momys) and I wanted to let you know, in case this is affecting other readers, that Google Reader doesn’t seem to be picking up your posts.  The last one it showed me was the October 23 one, and when I ask it to show me all posts, it still shows that as the most recent one.  I don’t know how many others I’ve missed over the past weeks.  :(  I just found out when I came to the blog itself as I thought surely you would have been posting more.  I am now off to read all the ones I’ve missed!  :)

    PRAISING THE LORD WITH YOU!!!  Will be praying for traveling Mercies over you while you are away and for safety for all of you and the children here at home.

  8. Kendra says:

    I had already checked your blog today but something was telling me to check again and I am so happy I did! We are counting down the days here as well :D

  13. Laura F. says:

    WOW WOW WOW!  Wonderful news!!!  Single digits!!  :)

  14. Susan says:

    Yaaaaay!! So glad to read this! Counting the days until Miss Katie comes home!

    You and your family and especially Katie will be on my church’s prayer list once again, for traveling blessings during your journey and for well-being for Katie until she’s safe and sound and healthy – and home.

    Very best wishes,
    Susan in Ky
