it's time.

quilt
[a welcome home quilt for our son. the best kind of surprise.]

leaving for the airport in about five hours. the litany of details that fleshed out and laced together these past three days to make this trip possible is nothing short of astounding.

God is astounding.

please pray that i get on all the right planes, that i'm kind to the people i encounter. that our visa interview on the 29th goes swimmingly. that the smallest kiddo and i can smile through the exhausting trek home together. that we make much of God all along the way.

so many people labored to get us to this homecoming. whoever you are, whatever your hand in this: thank you. see you all on the other side.
