africa 2011 - update

bravehello friends! this is lindsay.  friday afternoon this snapshot showed up on my phone. evidence that cath + nat were boarding a JFK flight. africa or bust! we weren’t expecting to hear much else from them.
---
my dad got a call yesterday afternoon that they were in the city + safe.
a voicemail popped up on my cell a bit later. all is well! her voice a bit shaky – but sounding brave.
---
she snuck a call a bit later – they’d already attended their first birth there. a boy! her call was quick and i can already hear a change in her. they will come home – different. she was anxious that they would be heading out to a more secluded area today. i am thinking of them. will you, too?

love, lindsay

Lindsay, thank you thank you. I have been thinking of your mama and your sister like crazy.
A boy? Perfect.

I've been checking her blog about 3 times a day, waiting for a post. YAY!!!! Beautiful. I'm so happy Cath is on this trek, and that she's able to share the experience with Natalie. I'm breathing deeper, now that I have some connecting information.
