We're off!!

This is the first time I've ever blogged from my iPhone - we'll see how this goes.

We had an awesome time at the beach. Perfect de-stresser before we left.

So, now we're here in the airport. When Jessica was in Addis Ababa last week she had access to both blogger and Facebook, so I think I should be able to update y'all when I'm there. Definitely check in with my Facebook page for lots of pictures - click the f button up over there on the right. I will probably use Facebook as my primary means of sharing.

Just announced our flight is delayed. Shoot.

Anybody wanna pray?

Please pray for Bethie's heart to sense the love we have for her. We will only get to spend one hour with her on three days. The first time we see her will be Monday morning (Monday afternoon Texas time.) Please pray that we would be able to begin a connection with her even during that short time.

Pray that the four of us have a good time together. Pray that I enjoy this time with my Shep and Eva Rose who are gonna be stretched way beyond their normal whine zone. Momma will need patience. Pray that I am Jesus to them vs mean jetlagged mom. Gonna practice all those connecting-with-kids-when-they're-difficult skills I've been learning in my attachment studies!

Pray that our MOWA letter is issued before we go to court. If we don't have it, the adoption won't be finalized on Friday. It's just a technicality, but it would be nice. Plus I can't show you pictures until we officially pass :)

Pray for Ike and Maggie and my mom-in-law Penny and mom Frieda. Leaving Ike whimpering this morning tore my heart out.

Those are my top concerns.


Next stop Addis Ababa!!


  1. Praying, dear heart. Praying like CRAZY.

  2. Praying for you and your family!

  3. Out of my mind excited for you, Missy! I'll be praying.

  4. Oh eek! love it! (And you are a SUPERSTAR on the iPhone!)

  5. Praying for all of your concerns! I don't comment often but I have been following you for years. I can't wait to see pictures of your sweet Bethie!

  6. SO excited for y'all, Missy. I know God is going to make this an incredible trip for all of you. Can't wait until you get sweet Bethie in your arms! God bless.

  7. Just said a prayer for you... Sitting in a bar... In Arkansas.

    Hey, beggars cannot be choosers :)

    Yay!! Bethie is coming home!!!


  8. Those first hours and days with Bethie have been on my mind the past few days -- so I sure will be praying!

  9. You know I'm praying. Praying for Bethie, you, Walker, Shep and Eva Rose. And the family back home. So excited.

  10. Will be praying for all of you!

  11. Missy ~ praying for you now ~ and for your kids ~ and for your being Jesus to them. You are being Jesus to me in your authenticity and your passion. Eager to hear the updates and meet your precious girl. ~ Melanie [friend of Laura W. and Megan T. ~ met you ONCE at PURE! ;-)}
