So today I gathered all of the clothes and other items I have for Dima and have it all ready to put into a suitcase. Tomorrow I will do my clothing (Eric will have to do his own clothes!) and then make a major Wal-Mart run and stock up on other items essential to our trip. It is surreal that we are so close to meeting our son and all I can think about is how Dima has no idea what is about to hit him! As he lays in his bed tonight he has no idea that he has a family preparing to go and rescue him from a life of being an orphan- wow! With God, all things are possible!
Here are some shots of our very first travel preparation:
|As you can see we are fans of Thomas.|
|His ironed clothes & some toys.|
|The first article of clothing I ever bought for Dima- I cried right in the middle of Wal-Mart.|
|Toys to take to the orphanage to play with him.|
|This is the quilt that Eric's mom made for her new grandson.|
Our last major obstacle is being fully funded. We are $4,000 short. Starting tonight and going through July 14th, my friend, Colleen Kudis will be hosting a Cookie Lee jewelry party to raise money for Dima's adoption. For details click here. Be a part of Dima's redemption story!!
