Camping, Packing, and Getting Ready for Africa

This weekend we went camping with friends, spent time with family, and continued preparing for our trip to Africa.  As I'm typing this I'm surrounded by half-packed backpacks, (say that three times fast), bug spray, electric converters, toilet paper, paperwork, baby bottles... you know... all the things you need for a quick trip around the globe.  We leave tomorrow!!!! (Tues.)

Our agenda is slightly unknown... but we hope it involves a lot of time with Abiella, and of course, court on Friday.  AHHHH!!!!!

I'll try to update this blog as often as I can...

Until then, I leave you with a few photos from our awesome weekend:

... and one of a very special girl we'll get to hold in a few days!

If you think about it, please consider saying a few prayers for our family this week.

God Bless & Much Love,
Mary Susan

I'm a friend of Danielle's in Houston. I wish you safe travels to Africa! Prayers for many memorable firsts with your baby girl! We recently adopted a beautiful brown baby through domestic adoption. She's an angel!
