I am working on compiling a list of all the emails from those of you who have requested a blog invite. I have found a way to make sure everyone who has requested to be included is included...don't want to leave anyone out. Some of you left a message asking for an invite but didn't give your email so I can't invite you without your email. A couple people commented as "annonymous" and just left an email....so those weren't included either. Make sure you left your name and email to be included. I am going to send invites out by this weekend. If you don't get one, make sure you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (write that down because once the blog goes private you will be locked out). I think I copied all the emails correctly, but just incase you don't get one for some reason and you requested, make sure you email me after the blog has gone private.
I have gotten some emails from people wondering why they didn't get an invite...that would be because the blog has not yet gone private and I have not sent the invites out yet. I am hoping to have the invites sent out by this weekend. I just wanted to make sure everyone who wanted to be included had a chance to read the post about the blog going private.
9 days until we leave!!!! Oh me oh my I have been so busy trying to get everything prepared and loose ends tied up here at home. I am still working through Tuesday of next week so I have been really busy with trying to do my normal teacher duties and getting things ready at school for a sub for the rest of the school year. Please keep praying for us. Specific prayer requests at this point include safe and timely travels, adoption-friendly judges and workers, quick time in country, no paperwork problems, continued feelings of peace and trust in God, and smooth bonding for us and Zoya. Thank you!!
