We have enough Sky Miles !!!!

Praise the Lord ! We found out this morning that we have enough sky miles to fly our entire family to China and back - for free !!! AND, we only have to pay 10% of our little one's ticket price when we fly home ( Delta gives an adoption discount !). While there is some *red tape* to go through to make all this free stuff happen, we will pray that all lines up when we do book our flight to China.

Chuck was on the phone for about 30 minutes today with Delta asking a lot of questions. At one point he asked " How much will it cost to get our little girl home ?" At that point he lost it and began weeping. It was one of those moments when reality hits you and you are talking about YOUR little girl. Adoption has been such a long and emotional journey for us and to think that it WILL happen, eventually, is a little overwhelming mixed with sweet and precious tears.

Wow! I am so happy for your family. And your hubby crying. So sweet. I bet getting the tickets lined up and starting to think about packing and all will make it seem lots more real.

Tami said...

Wow! How long have you been saving those;-)????!

That must really be a big relief with all the expenses that go along with adopting internationally.

God is good!

Wow, what GREAT news! I think it is great that your hubby realized the magnitude of this whole process while on the phone with the airlines.
