I received "the call" today! We can be in Taiwan the first week of June! Jamie, Nikita and I will leave Boston on Saturday May 30th, and meet Sunny on Monday June 1st. We'll be home again on Saturday June 6th.
I am beyond excited! And nervous too. There are a ton of details to work out for childcare while we are gone, and now I must practice my Mandarin in earnest. I gave my two week "Leave of Absence" notice at Cracker Barrel, that felt really good!
The family dynamics are soon going to change, and I know it will effect Sunny the most. I have been praying for her a lot. Lately I find myself thinking of her in the middle of the day, and since she is 12 hours ahead that is the middle of the night for her-- so I pray that she dreams of us and through that we will not be strangers to her. She does have several pictures of us, and we will still be doing a webcam visit with her.
God is good!
