Almost Done...

We are in the home stretch now.  Travel plans have been made for weeks now.  We finally have Varsha's passport.  I've started packing everything.  Now to all the small details.
I need to get emergency contacts together for my MIL who is staying at our house with the kids (we are so grateful).  I also need to get Prasun's medical history together.  I have Ananya's written up.
I have documents to print.
I have a house to clean.
I have babies to love on.
I'm so going to miss them.  11 days is way too long to be gone in my opinion.  I know others have it so much worse.  6, 8 weeks.  Oh heavens.  I'd be a mess.  11 days would be easy.
We are so excited to get to finally meet Varsha.  She is so loved by so many.  We feel blessed that God is allowing us to be her parents.  It is a privilege.  We are honored.
We could us all the prayers we can get.  Her adjustment is going to be hard.  She has been loved so well in her orphanage.  We will have to walk through alot of grief with her.  Our other kids need the prayers too.  They have never been away from us this long.
So 1 week.  10 days and I get to hug my daughter that I've been loving from across the ocean for 2 long years.  10 days.
This journey is finally ending.

ONe neat thing to think about is how she will know what love is when you give it to her because she has been so loved! So happy for you all and will be praying for smooth adjustment and that your other children will do well while you are gone. You and your daughter are going to be such a blessing to each other.
