  We are now just a phone call away from our travel dates!!  Our dossier was submitted exactly one week ago and now begins the waiting game.  The only thing that keeps me going (besides my 5 kiddos) is realizing that in just a couple weeks Olivia will be in my arms.  Lee and I are starting to pack and it's crazy to think that we will be trading in our short sleeves and flip flops for parkas and snow boots:)  To tell you the truth it's really exciting!  It's been 15 years since we've been away together ALONE!!!  I'm not quite sure how I am actually going to leave my kids.  I can't even go there yet.  I know that it will much harder for me than it will be for them so please say a prayer or two for me.  My amazing sister, Colleen and her family are ready to drop their lives in the Bay Area step into ours and that puts so much peace in my heart.  My babies LOVE Teen (Aunt Colleen) and can't wait for the whole Mazzuca family to move in!  The big kiddos, I know will be absolutely fine when we leave but my sweet Chloe?  Oh, lordy, now I'm crying...  What will Chloe do without me?  Forget that, What will I do without Chloe????  I can't even imagine waking up and not having her next to me....Okay enough, enough, enough.... I mean who wouldn't miss this girl like mad?

I know I will!  I will be sure to keep you all posted.  In the meantime please visit this amazing blog for a giveaway to help us raise those last few dollars!  These wonderful girls have put together an incredible giveaway complete with the most awesome prizes.  They have already raised $320 for us!  Amazing!!!

Please pray for our phone call to come soon!  Can't wait much longer:)


  1. Soooo exciting and nerve-wracking, Beth. I would miss Chloe, too, but think of sweet Olivia who's never had a mommy to love and hold her and Chloe has many sibs, relatives and "aunties" to love her. I can't wait to meet your new baby! God bless you, my friend.

  2. So exciting! Praying for you all!

  3. Just letting you know I'm praying for this waiting period. I know it is hard.
