Leaving on a Jet Plane :)

OK quick post.....because well....I have lots to do, and I am running out of time, but if you are not a facebook friend I wanted to let you know!!!

I AM LEAVING EARLY TOMORROW MORNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  WAHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We got clearance Thursday- they told us around 6:30 pm we had just gotten back not that long before then from taking Jason's parents to the airport.  My parents left early that morning.....and it was sad to have everyone leave.

THEN- we got that call that said you are CLEARED- you can go get your son!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!  SOOOOOO EXCITING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So we stayed up until 1:30am booking plane tickets and figuring out details :)

Jason will be joining us next Monday evening and we will all be flying home Wednesday!!!!
We will be coming in around 11am to the Tampa Airport- so if you want more details we have some people who want to meet us at the airport :)  email me, and I will let you know!

Also if you are in the area and want to help with meals- that would be AMAZING!  Please let me know that too. We are THRILLED and THANKFUL for soooo many who want to help us bring our babe home!

YES- more details to come and I will have a laptop with me to keep you all informed and get you pictures :)

OK Prayer requests:
1)  For our son!!!!!!!!!!  Transition and healing!!!!!!  He also has some doctors apts next Tuesday. 
2)  For his family that is loving him right now!!!!!
3)  For our family- transitions are not usually easy.
4)  For my brave cousin Heidi Dixson and her hubby Mark who will be looking after our beautiful babes at home while daddy is gone.  In addition to their 2 sweet girls!  For my Aunt Jane who will be pitching in as well!!!!!
5)  For safe travels :) 
6)  For my mommy's heart that will be torn between getting to pick up my sweet baby boy and leaving my heart with our other 8 children and my hubby.   I have never left Joanna more than 24 hrs. and that was once!
7)  For my sweet hubby while he is home by himself.  He is more than capable and loves the opportunity of getting to spend time with the kiddos, but I know it isn't easy sometimes.

So that is a lot of prayer requests, but we know you will surround and cover us in  prayer!!!!  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
