Look Out Nepal, Here We Come!

Tomorrow is the big day we've been waiting for, we are leaving for Nepal! We are leaving in faith anticipating the God of the Universe to blow us and everyone else away with how He is going to bring Trek home! He has a plan and I can't wait to see what He's gonna do!

We heard from our adoption agency that our official adoption day looks like it's going to be Dec. 3 or maybe a couple days after. We will be able to see him everyday until we take full custody of him. We will do our best to post updates here or on facebook....not sure what one will work.

So, I'll leave you with a special email that was sent to me by one of my sweet friends (that I don't see nearly enough). She knows my anxiety around leaving my girls at home and flying. She is also an adoptive mom of five beautiful kids so she understands this whole process....from every angel.

Did a little research and wanted to share it with you.

“Your chances of being involved in an aircraft accident are about 1 in 11 million. On the other hand, your chances of being killed in an automobile accident are 1 in 5000. Statistically, you are at far greater risk driving to the airport than getting on an airplane. However, the perception is that you have more control over your fate when you are in your car than as a passenger traveling on an airplane. Experience shows otherwise, considering that over 50,000 people are killed on the highways every year.”

So, Miss Tonya… I want you to know that I will be ESPECIALLY praying for you on your DRIVE TO THE AIRPORT… but once you’re seated ON the plane, my mind will be at ease, knowing that you’re safe and sound!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, I wanted to share a mental picture with you that really helped me on my 1st flight…I just kept envisioning the ENORMITY of the ALMIGHTY GOD compared to our teeny little plane and even our WORLD (which He holds in the palm of His hand)…. And I pictured Him gently gliding our plane along its path (which HE IS! Because He alone is in control of all weather, all gravitational forces, all EVERYTHING!!!!!) and it calmed me to just imagine His mighty hand lifting us along through the air towards our child. (kinda like this picture I’m attaching)

Anyway, hearing you talk about your worries yesterday really make my heart go out to you because I’ve struggled so much with anxiety over the years. I AM PRAYING FOR YOU!!!!! ((((((((((((hug)))))))))))) Leave it to God. HE’S GOT IT COVERED!

Love, Chantelle
