Then my parents will be out of town for half of our trip and can't watch Mookie (they can still watch Daughter and Mookie for the other half- just not the full week we had been planning). Now we found out that Mat's parents will be out of town through the Saturday before the transfer (we had been planning on driving to their place on Friday and taking off on Saturday morning. Leaving Daughter there). They said they would change their travel arrangements....
Is God trying to tell us something?
Should we not do the November transfer?
That would be additional cost as we would have to renew our background checks (in ND home studies are good for 2 years but background checks must be renewed every year). But that way we'd have extra time to save up after the other big expenses. Plus if we get pregnant the baby would be more than 3 years younger than Daughter... We were trying for 2-3 years age difference.
Should we take Daughter with us?
That would likely be more stressful. Driving with her is not easy... We would probably have to fly, and that would stress me out more. I hate flying.
Should we make it a shorter trip?
That might have to be the way we go... But it just seems such a shame to sit in the car for over 20 hours to have two days at the destination.
Should we give up on EA altogether?
I really don't want this to be God's will. I really want to have genetic siblings for Daughter. I really don't want her to be an only child....
God, please guide us!
