Matt passed MERP!
So we are officially off to Dominica in December. Couldn't be more proud of him. Lesson learned that no matter how many doors are shut, to keep on trying and it'll happen if you want it to. Matt's had his fair share of obstacles, but in the end, hard work, determination and blessings from God have made it possible. It's funny to think how we were put here in the exact right time, providing us with great friends, Matt's had a great group to study with and I made some wonderful, lifelong friends, too. Never doubt His timing. Medical school here we come!
We are wrapping up our last day in Freeport! The car we rented with the Womack's has paid off already after just one day of running errands. Tomorrow morning we'll head to the airport around 5:30 a.m. and then we're off. We should land in Miami around 8:30 a.m. and then Detroit around 2:15 p.m. Prayers for a safe, uneventful flight are appreciated, as my anxiety has already kicked in high gear! Any recommendations on how to get over this fear are appreciated!
Today we are off to finish up at running errands and take Vedant to the airport. I'm sure it will be a sad goodbye! Then we are off the Port to finish up some shopping.
Regardless, Matt and I are more than ready to be home and be surrounded with friends and family during the holiday season before we start our next journey December 28. We couldn't be more grateful to our friends and family for all the support, prayers and encouragement during this sometimes difficult, sometimes stressful, sometimes fun transition in our lives. In the end, it was definitely worth. Seeing the accomplishment in Matt's eyes when we saw his final score made it all worth it.
