Once again, the least likely to succeed has made it to the pinnacle with the army of heaven making a way:) I got to meet another adoptive set of parents in Frankfurt. Mel and John, and she and her husband were easy to spot in Frankfurt since they were hauling a stroller around with no kid in it yet!:)
I did not know it was possible to be this tired and still be conscious. Dinner tomorrow night at TGIF and enough groceries to feed a small army. Oh yeah that army would be us. I ventured out to find food like a foraging squirrel and in the mean time Mel was getting first class service from Nico! HA! Now I see how this works...of course Nico showed up right after we got back from grocery shopping and he took us...grocery shopping. Not wanting to hurt his feelings (translate: Need to know what we already bought...") we went right back out to go tour the 'hood. We have wired the tv to the dvd player so all is well. we have internet so all is well. Oh yeah, and the magic jack works amazing from here so my mom is calling everyone she knows. Apartment is large and pretty cool. But it is time to head for bed and get my beautiful self back in order since the competition is so stiff here to look fabulous!!! Oh and Shelly Burman, they took my matches OUT OF MY SUITCASE and left me a note signed by someone in international security. Can't wait for more adventures. I am sure there will be plenty.
By the way, for anyone else traveling, the groceries sell salt and sugar in the same area of the shelf...there are three boxes of salt in the cabinet in the apartment. We are not the first to fall for this sales technique but did taste it before loading up oatmeal with it. Yes, it was salt. It is a reminder I think that we are salt and light, and not to forget it. I laugh and think that sugar would have been a nice reminder for us to be sweet:)
Will update more later but tomorrow we receive our referrals and we need a ton of prayer for that time at the state department of adoption.
