May 9,2013. The day we boarded a Delta flight out of Tampa, Florida headed to Entebbe, Uganda to meet our baby!! The morning of May 9th we woke up around 8am (we aren’t early risers) and began getting ready and packing some last minute items as we waited for our friend Brandi to come pick us up and take us to the airport. We headed out around 10am with 5 checked bags, 2 backpacks, 1 rolling carry on, and of course 2 pillows.
Once we arrived at the airport we got all checked in and we were off to our gate!
The adoption process was definitely the biggest stretching God had ever done in our lives! And the blessing was equally as great!
After a quick layover at JFK we were on our way to Amsterdam!
Our flights and layover in Amsterdam were smooth and we arrived in Uganda around midnight on May 10th. As we drove through the city of Kampala in the middle of the night we tried to take in all the sites and smells we could. We arrived at the guest house, got settled in our room, and did a little unpacking before heading to bed for a few hours! It was so hard to sleep knowing that our baby was in that city less than 20 minutes from us! However, we were so exhausted from barely napping on the plane that we were able to get some good rest that night. And it’s a good thing we were able to rest because on the morning of May 11th our lives changed forever!
