One year ago...
You all know the rollercoaster ride we've been on in the last few days and weeks. We've had to hold on to the roll bar with one hand, while downing a bottle of Pepto with the other.
The ride was nauseating...and we wanted off.
But then we got a call this afternoon asking us to take one more trip on the rails. And we have decided to take a chance.
We have a referral!
It's for a little 4-year-old girl in Odessa, who has a couple of issues, which at first glance seem to be manageable.
We don't know anything else...not even her name or birthday. We didn't have an SDA appointment so we haven't seen a file or even a picture. We've just been told about her. We're going completely blind.
We leave early in the morning (3 a.m. local time - 7 p.m. at home) for Odessa - by car. We're hoping to visit her first thing in the morning, make a decision and go from there. Nothing like waiting until the last minute...and making a life-changing decision under pressure.
Someone hand us the Drammamine.
We're getting back on!
