Excited

This is the companion post to "Nervous" ... because as I said, there are actually many details of this trip to Haiti about which I am really excited.

Even though staying at the orphanage may be "roughing it," I am excited to live where my boys live and see life through their little eyes. I'm excited about watching them interact with their world and observing their place in it.

I am excited about having a chance to do more than just say hi and bye to the other children. I look forward to playing with them and getting to know them.

I am excited about interacting with the older children. I hope to have enough room/weight allowance to bring some craft-type items that we can do together.

I am excited to meet LaWanna, who is taking such wonderful care of Ian.

I am excited about trying to learn some Creole; but, I am also thankful that there are several English-speaking visitors currently at the orphanage with whom I can converse in English.

I am excited to spend some time with Alec's birthmom.

I am excited to spend some time with Ian's birth brother.

I am excited to celebrate the boys' birthdays! I look forward to giving them their little gifts and also distributing the small gifts I've purchased for the other children.

I am excited to be able to communicate face to face with our adoption coordinator and find our where our file realistically stands.

I am excited about taking bunches of pictures.

But most of all, I am excited about two very precious little boys who will be in my arms in just 13 short days!! :)
