The headings!

I am writing this entry - and the headings are in BULGARIAN :)

We are here!

Our trip has gone fairly well. It was long, of course, but the food we received on board our aircraft was delicious and reasonably plentiful.  We did get just a bit of rest as we flew.  And, to my grateful surprise, our bags were the FIRST to be off loaded in Sofia, so my constant worry about our bags was delightfully unfounded.  We found our facilitator very quickly and she seems very nice.  We immediately went to our hotel in Sofia and were asleep in just a short time.  We were exhausted.  As I write this, it is 4:30 in the morning (Bulgaria time) but we have had a long rest.

Our facilitator has filled our ears with happy stories of our little boy.  I hope she is not exaggerating when she says how adorable he is.  We, of course, already feel that way!

The excitement is enormous.  We are here.  Jon is making coffee in the coffee maker in our room.  We will meet him later today!

The European plugs have done a number on Jon's cell phone, even with adapters.  We will have to find new solutions when we come again.

Our eyes are wide open and starry as we try to take in this culture and city.  I cannot wait to see the drive later today, but we definitely can't wait to see the little boy we are going to finally meet....our future son.

Please keep us in prayer.  We will travel there in just a few hours (our time) and that is when we confront the Bad Place and our beautiful future son.  Please pray that his heart is ready to meet us and that the conditions we view are improving.


  1. Remember those feelings myself...just a few months ago. Pray that all goes well as you travel to the orphanage. Hopefully you will meet some wonderful people there who truly care about your little boy and want him to have a great family. Don't be surprised if a lot of it is a blur that seems to go too quickly!

  2. Woo Hoo, I am so excited for you guys! I have been watching your blog. We are hoping to adopt from Bulgaria in the next year. I can't wait to hear about you meeting your sweet boy!!

  3. Jennifer, I am excited and eager to hear updates and see PHOTOS!

  4. I don't know you, but I'm praying for you, that this trip will go well and the process will be easy. Love from Sweden
