Drum roll please...

So I have almost been here for three weeks, so weird how fast time has gone by! It feels like just yesterday I was saying goodbye to my teary mom and bawling sister at the airport:] but it's true, I have been here for long enough that I practically feel like a local! Ok maybe not quite cause my spanish is still pretty rough, but I'm working on it! But I have been here long enough that tonight we found out which orphanage we are gonna be the "Moms" of.

Confused? let me explain. We go to 8 different sites that we work at, there are five that we are at everyday and three that we go once or twice a week to. And after three weeks we become a mom of one of the areas which means we are there practically everyday! For a week we train with the old girls that have already been here for two months so that we can learn the ropes! It's pretty intimidating, scary, and nerve racking to finally find out where you will be working everyday for the next two months! Yikes.

So i'll cut to the chase, tonight we all had individual meetings to find out where we will be placed... and I was first! To say I was a little nervous was an understatement... I was close to passing out! When I finally got to my meeting and sat down with Camille my heart rate was through the roof! It took me a few minutes to even let her start talking because I would keep on interrupting! ha when I fina
lly let her speak it was only good news!

I got EXACTLY what I wanted, I am the mom of the little, little babies! And I could not be more thrilled! I have one of the girls who will be my assistant and help me out, her name is Rachel, who has actually been one of the girls I have become pretty close with, we work really well together so I am also thrilled about that! But I am the main one in charge which is gonna be a lot of responsibility but I am so ready for it!

I am ready to be with these girls and many others for the next two months! I love these kids more than words and I know I sound like a broken record but I really am so unbelievably excited and ready for this challenge and blessing in my life!!

I'm sure that now I am finally in a place that I will be consistently I will have a lot of stories to tell! Hasta entonces!
