Sleepless nights begin

Well, it's 3:30 a.m. and I'm posting to this lovely blog so I guess the sleepless nights begin. No problem falling asleep. I think my body was drained of all its adrenaline and collapsed. But, me being the worry-wort I am, wake straight up out of a dead sleep at 2:50 a.m. with no hope of returning to night-night land. I guess I will have to get used to this for a while since Kevin and I will be helping Isabella adjust to a new timezone, a new daylight schedule and pretty much a new schedule (of everything).

So since I'm up I confirmed our e-tickets and hotel reservations. We fly out of Cleveland on Delta at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday (which means we have to arrive at Hopkins no later than 4:30 a.m. - another sleepless night ahead?! And thanks Mom for volunteering to make the trip with us so we don't have to park the car!) We take a commuter jet from Cleveland to Atlanta. After a 2 hour lay-over we board our fight to Guatemala City which is completely full. We arrive in Guatemala City at 12:57 p.m. their time.

More on the trip later. Maybe some more shut-eye is in the future!

Jen and Kevin,
Yesterday, one of our members at the Y came in to talk to friends. She had just arrived home on Tuesday with her new little boy from Guatemala. She told me her details and gave me hope yet I just wanted to cry thinking about both of you still waiting.
Prayers were answered! Sue called me last night to tell me the great news.
Enjoy the planning, have a safe trip, and thank God for his precious gift. I think HE was definitly trying to teach everyone about the gift of patience. He provides ALL at the correct time!
Have FUN you guys!
