Ready to bring Lyla home forever!!!!

Sitting here in Dulles washington airport ready to board a flight to Germany!! Today is the day!!!! Today is the day I have been waiting for!!! Today is the day that I finally get to travel to bring Lyla home Forever!! Wow!!!

Those of you that follow the Basile's family blog might remember the super awesome guy that traveled with Sarah to bring Mila home. His name is Mike and he is a retired firefighter!! In addition to fighting fires for 30 years he is also an EMT!!! So Sarah Basile introduced us to Mike and his very lovely wife Carol. We knew immediately that we were Blessed to meet such a wonderful compassionate couple. I mean really, how often does a man offer to travel to Ukraine and his wife agree with his very generous offer not once but now twice and this time to a family they had never even met?? Well we are Blessed that is for sure!!

I am also so happy to share that Ms. Sarah Birschbach, daughter of My wonderful friends Jill & Pat is home helping taking care of the littles. We are so blessed her parents agreed to this as she is such a huge help to have around the house. I just love her so much. She even made a hat to match Lyla's gotcha day outfit in like 4 hours!! Wow!!

How about all those Blessings?? Amazing I know!!!

Also my very best friend Gretchen is helping Again!! The littles love her so much and she is truly a GOD send of a friend!!! I love you Gretchy!!!

So now that everything is in place, I'm going to go get my girl!!!

Thank GOD!!!
