After getting the email from our agency saying that we had the Guesthouse for the last couple days of our trip, I began to research some hotels. That was Friday. I booked the one that I had been looking into, on Saturday morning and then went on my merry way. Whew, big relief. Hotel, all done. Flights, done. We're good!
Then Sunday evening I decided to check my email. Received an email (from the hotel guy) stating that the booking wasn't a confirmation, and that the hotel I wanted was BOOKED. I'm sorry, say that again!? Yeah, panic! So then I called up the said hotel guy and asked him to help me find a hotel in the area near Eastern and this was his response: "It's too late. I will try but there is a wait list for people that are trying to book a hotel for those dates, in that area." Excuse me? WHAT?!?! Ummmm, we're leaving WEDNESDAY and you're telling me that it's too late?!!! Really, how is that possible? In a city as big a Seoul, there are NO hotel rooms available in the vicinity of Eastern?
So . . . I hopped on the internet and found us a place. Relatively near Eastern. The pickin' was slim, but not impossible. Thanks, but no thanks, pal. I mean, this should have been done last week, and I get that, but it's too late?! Sheeesh!
Crisis avoided and we are on our way to get our daughter. Insert massive smiley face here. Bags are (almost) packed. Maps are (semi) memorized.
We will meet her on Friday morning at 10:00 a.m. Which will be Thursday night @ 7:00 your time. Well, Colorado time (I think). My little Abram will be playing T-Ball when we meet baby sister. Weird. Then the rest is up to our Social Worker (in Korea) and Foster Mom.
We will keep you all posted and please continue to pray for little Joye (and us). Her world is going to change BIG TIME. We pray that the Holy Spirit will be with us all.
