Silly me! I read "This is our beautiful daughter, Saron." and then my eyes jumped to her pictures. I completely glossed over the travel date.

WOW! That's soon!

Praying everything goes smoothly from here on out. Also praying for your heart between now and then. Until it actually happens, I know the fear and doubt are near.
