Our new prayer is to leave for Uganda around January 24. Don’t ask me why I picked that date. It’s based on several confusing contingencies that might confuse or bore you! To simplify these contingencies, I have picked a random date from the weeks that our agency believes we could travel at the earliest. So. January 24. Praying. I hope that the holidays fly by in a delightful blur!
Remember that this is at the least a five week trip. If we do travel in late January, I will be away from sweet Caroline on her 3rd birthday, which is also Valentine’s Day. Ugh… break my heart! We will probably soften this blow by having a very early or very late birthday, when our whole family is together. Caroline will never know the difference!
Traveling in late January would also mean being in Uganda during their 5 year presidential & parliamental elections, which begin February 18.
Please pray that our latest travel hopes (late January) happens without delay. We are in love with Amelia, and in love with the country that is giving her to our care. We cannot wait to go see both.
