if you were me

What would you do?

If you were traveling alone with two virtual babies on an international flight (and a few domestic flights, and train too).  Oh, and the kids had Down syndrome…minor little detail.

How would you do it?

Help me out here…I need some practical mommy brains to think this out with me.

Some have advised me to get one of these slings that goes on your back. One in the front, and one on the back. But it’s not really an option. Traveling alone, I would have no one to help me load and unload the baby on the back.

Too hard.

This definitely IS an option.  I already have one sling, and can purchase another.  But, is it as easy as it looks?
I guess if Hailee and Harper are different different sizes, I could still make the double sling thing work.
Do you think it would be practical though?  Any of you ever carried two babies in slings?
Or, I could do one in an umbrella stroller, and one in a sling.  My only concern is that being in a stroller is so foreign to these little girls, there is a strong possibility that they may NOT want to sit in it.

Oh goodness, I just don’t know.  I’m trying to figure out what the best way to bring the girls home alone is going to be.  But I’m kinda going around in circles here.

What would you do if you were me?

Even though I know you’re glad you’re not  🙂

And just because I know some of you are going to ask–no, it is not possible for Anthony to stay for the entire duration of the time.  He absolutely has to get back to work. A whole month off work is just impossible.  And I really don’t know of anyone who could meet me there just to fly home with me.  We don’t have a lot of family around who can help out.  It’s just us.  So I just gotta do what I gotta do to bring the angels home alone. I’m not too nervous about it.  I have flown many times alone with my children, even internationally…they just don’t have Down syndrome.

Let me also say that right from the beginning of this journey we have been fully aware that I would have to make the journey home alone. We have known all along that it would not be an easy task.  But opting out of the adoptions and saying NO just because I would have to come home alone with the girls has never been an option.  I know it’s going to be difficult.  But it’s at times like this when I know that I know that my God will NOT abandon me on the mission He has set before me.

So…any ideas, friends?  What do you think would be the easiest way for me to do this?

I really value your wisdom and input.
