We are excited about going to see, meet, and receive our baby boy in Korea. However, there’s one part of this adventure that’s going to be difficult — the takeaway.
You see, Ethan (who doesn’t even know that his name is going to be “Ethan”) doesn’t know that in a couple days, two people on the other side of the world are going to board a plane, come to his country, and take him away from his home! 😥
We are grateful that the baby we’re adopting has been well-taken care of by a caring foster mother/family. In a loving environment, he has grown attached to them. As far as he is concerned, they are his family, and he is home. That will all change in several days when we carry him off and board a plane in Seoul to bring him home with us.
While we believe he will adjust and come to love us, too, the ugly part of this experience will be the period of time it takes Ethan to go from viewing us as kidnappers to viewing us as parents.
We would appreciate your prayers for this part of the journey. Please join us in praying that God will create a special place in Ethan’s heart for us, and that we will bond quickly, even during our first 18 hours together in airports and airplanes!
