My Aunt and Uncle live in Georgia. They have two 1 year old twins and a 4 month old. My Uncle is in the Air Force on reserve, but has been commissioned for a 3 month mission in Afghanistan from July to September. My Aunt will be left alone with three little ones during this time. At first, they were unsure if it was really going to happen, but they have gotten word that he will have to go.. Which is why I didn't post a whole lot about this..
Well, they have asked if I would come down in July till the end of August to help out. They will pay for my plane ticket and pay for my help. This is perfect is many ways, especially since I don't get paid in the summer and don't have a summer job lined up. However, this means leaving Drew for almost two months, praying I have no health issues and taking care of my cousins. It also means missing Drew's grandparents 50th Anniversary Party.. While these are important events, my heart cannot even begin to fathom the possibility of taking care of three little ones on my own. I can't imagine being in her shoes.. My heart is very heavy. I want the best of both worlds. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to spend time with my Aunt and baby cousins, especially since Drew and I have no children yet.
Drew and I are going to be in prayer and ask that you will be in prayer for us too..
We want to honor God and we want to know his leading for this decision.
