One Week

Assuming all goes well, one week from tonight we will be in Guat with Nathanael.  I am so excited.  I just can’t imagine how much he’s changed in 2.5 months – Joe and I both really miss him.  It’s a funny process – as we trudge through winter and all the waiting in MN at times he feels so far away that it’s almost not real.  Othertimes, like tonight, he feels so real and I can hear his laughter.  We love his laugh.  I think one of the hardest parts of the return trip was our layover in Houston.  There was a baby that was howling/gurgling/sounding just like Nathanael.  Joe and I would both stop and thought we heard him.  It was kind of spooky to say the least. 

^Our last morning together.
