Today is THE day for Paul and Chrissy.
The day that they have never been so nervous.
The day that they have never checked the time so often during breakfast.
The day that they see poverty they have never imagined as they are driven through the city.
The day that they see love, hope, and kindness on the streets of Addis Ababa.
The day that they count every second of the van ride back to the hotel.
The day they wonder constantly and pray incessantly.
The day they know that these children, their children, will have their hearts broken again.
The day they know that life is hard, but God is good.
The day they stand in front of the gate of the care center knowing their children are inside.
The day they go up the stairs holding hands to see their names printed on a welcome sign.
The day they go and sit on a couch and wait for their children to be brought down.
The day they hold their babies, kiss their faces, and whisper words of hope and love.
The day they know that we are all praying for them.
