After an emotional week, filled with both excitement and nightmares about the trip we are finally ready! After many discussions attempting to outline a game plan of how to coordinate the initial meetings with my birthfather and birthmother, we have come to the conclusion that we just have to "go with the flow." Whether that means driving up to the house and knocking on the door, or setting up a meeting at Lookout Mountain - we shall see. None of us have any idea of what's going to happen. But (thanks to Lana) Bryan will be video taping the entire encounter.
Thank you all for your prayers and support. I will be back with a full report.
Expectations are in check. Bags are packed! Chattanooga, here we come!
