Mark, Bradyn, Brynn and I all made it safely to Hattiesburg! We left home around 5:00pm on Wednesday, and pulled into Hattiesburg around noon on Thursday. It was a long ride, Mark and I took turns driving. The funniest part of the trip was we stopped at a IHOP to eat breakfast yesterday morning, and I guess I was tired, I walked out of the restroom, and thought it was funny there was a urinal in a women's restroom. Tell I figured out, I was in the wrong one! OH BOY!
We got settled in to our room and Mark slept, and the kids swam, but I could not sleep and my emotions were flying.
Our Social Worker was unable to make it to our meeting with R, she was with a birth mom in New Orleans. I talked with R and decided we would meet at the mall, on the way to the mall we noticed we are only blocks from the hospital! :) We got to the mall got a few snacks and diet coke, I noticed R right away, and she is a beautiful young lady! She has a little girl who is 2 1/2 and she is a doll! Brynn fell in love with her. We walked around the mall for sometime, hoping the DR would call and tell her what time she needed to be at the hospital. It was around 4:40 and I was thinking it is quite strange she did not have it all in place on the time, and what needed to be done in the morning! We decided to go eat, we met at a steak house down from our hotel. By than my guts where rolling and the no sleep/no food/high emotions where flooding my heart! I couldn't even eat.
We left the restaurant and departed. We all jumped in bed and slept. My heart was so sad, we traveled 18 hours and we do not know when the csection is! ugh!
This morning she has a Dr appt. and the SW is with her. WE need to know what is going on!
The kids are swimming with Mark, while I ask for prayers. So many thoughts are flying through my brain! I miss my older boys, and we can not stay here and enjoy Hattiesburg, while the boys are home.
Today is my Dad's Birthday, Happy Birthday DAD! Sunday is baptism for Jacoby! We will post more when we know.
Last night I layed in bed, and as I prayed so many verses of God's love flowed through my head!

Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
Proverbs 3:5

As I sit here, still no phone call!
This crazy journey of ours!!
I am so thankful God is in control!!
Thanks for checking in!
