"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Counting down the hours now!

I have decided to create a separate blog for the our travels throughout China because it will be easier to record for Anna Grace's lifebook.

We are all packed and ready to roll. This will be our last post from home as we are packing up the final item, the laptop. Scott, Kai, my Mom and myself are filled with anticipation and excitement as the hour approaches for us to head to the airport. There won't be much sleeping here tonight! An electrifying feeling has definitely filled every nook and cranny of our humble abode as we set forth on the path that God has prepared for us. Nine months to the day that we sent in our requests for her to be ours, we are leaving to bring her home. Yes! Another beautiful daughter and this time, a baby sister, and we couldn't be happier!

We hope to someday share with her all of the prayers and well wishes of family, friends, and complete strangers who couldn't wait to see us united. Please be sure to sign our guestbook if you have not done so. There is a link on the sidebar.

Anna Grace,

Hang on, baby girl! We are literally days away from that magic moment in which you will be placed in our arms to be a part of our family for a lifetime. Words could never express how much love your Baba and I have for you, but we promise with our entire hearts and soul that as long as we live, we will show you that love. You will know what it means to have a forever family, to love and to be loved. You were delivered from Heaven into our hearts, and we are so very blessed for that gift.

Hugs and kisses as we wait to be united,

Mama & Baba
