We got the 'phone call' this weekend.
Our agency called to go over everything we need to know for our trip.
There's a lot to know.
Now keep in mind we've been through this process before...
But each time is a little different.
And add to that the fact that this time we're going to a different country and you've got the recipe for a big case of the nerves.
I've been downing pepto tablets like candy in the last week.
Thankfully we are working with quite possibly the most patient person in the world.
And the best agency I think we have ever had.
Nothing against our previous agencies (they're both out of business now) but I never had any one of them call me on a Saturday afternoon to answer my questions. They never gave me their cell phone number so that our families could get in touch with us in case of an emergency. And they most certainly didn't pray with us.
I like 'em.
We talked about everything under the sun.
She told us where our facilitator would be waiting for us.
We discussed the SDA appointment and what to do if there are no children that fit our requests.
And we talked about warm shoe inserts that we can buy at the underground mall.
An hour later our questions were spent.
I feel better now.
Much more relaxed...
And a lot more prepared.
I think I'll save the pepto for the airplane ride.
I'll need them in only...
