This sweet boy has waited tooooo long.
Praise God he is finally coming home!
The look of hope has vanished...
He needs us to come right now!
We are so thankful that we leave on Monday, Dec 5th for China!
We have met Jake before but
this is the first time we will meet
Her gotcha day is scheduled for Wednesday, December 7th!
In this pic he is wearing the tennis shoes we gave him!
He is excited and full of life!
He has seen what life in a family is like
and he wants it!
Praying that we can once again encourage him and
help him be re engaged!
Sometimes the process just takes longer than expected...
And sometimes it goes faster than expected!
We have had it both ways
this time it took longer...
mostly bc of us and a few
mistakes we made...
We are so thankful that I leave on Monday, Dec 5th for China!
Ava and Melissa will travel with me!
Grace will be the first to be adopted!
I love how the nannies are studying the pictures!
We will meet Grace on Wednesday Dec. 7th(China time)!
Thank you Jesus!
Grace has a few more medical needs
so we are working hard to bring supplies for her
and figure out what is the best thing
to do while we are in China.
She is studying the photo album!
And probably saying to herself-
"what on earth am I getting
myself in to?"
So excited to have you join
Sometimes after packing for 5 people,
writing a novel(directions) for the sitters,
convincing oneself that the home cannot run smoothly without you,
instructing those at home on the schedule,
and how to behave...
Thank you Joey for helping us figure out what size Grace is?
I think that jacket will work out just fine!
Seriously, what a good sport!
Now he is trying on girls skinny jeans
to see what size may fit Grace!
Thank you Joey and Madeline!
My traveling companions!
We can do this!
And we're off!
Please pray us to China,
and home from China!
