Here We Go!

It's hard to believe that in a few short hours we will board a plane and travel across the globe to meet our daughter. I have been so busy this past week, that I've failed to take it all in. We're leaving in the morning!!! The wait has been an eternity, yet I feel like I haven't had time to prepare. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off doing errands and chores I could have done weeks/months ago. We have been surrounded by friends and family that have encouraged us, prayed with us and showered us with love and affection and we will carry that love with us to China. We are hoping to post when we arrive in China. We leave Houston Friday at 10:50AM and we will arrive in Guangzhou, Saturday at 9:15PM. We're loaded with snacks, games, movies, books and distractions so hopefully that will help pass the time. It's late, I have one load of laundry left to fold and then I'm headed to bed. I think I'm numb!

I have to share this photo. Hoots class made this for him and I cried. I love it! He has the best teacher ever. We are so blessed!

The last 3 years of our life is crammed into this folder. Every document we need to produce in China is in this little packet.

Our bags are packed and waiting by the door!! Lambert's bag is not in the photo. I have to make certain no one thinks he is carrying the pink bag. I would hear about it if I didn't disclose this.

PS.. someone will be house sitting for us while were gone. My mom thinks I should let everyone know so our house doesn't get robbed...


  1. I prayed for y'all before I went to bed last night. Every time someone would mention doing something on the 25th I would think I couldn't because something important was happening that day. Then I would always remember, it's the day y'all leave to get Libbie! (IMPORTANT) I'm so happy for you!
    Many blessings,
    p.s. I remember seeing you in Chick-fil-a filling our some paperwork. You mentioned it's here! :)

  2. I LOVE YOU ALL and can't wait for that airport day!!!!!!!! Have a fabulous trip!!!!

  3. I was so going to rob y'all while you were gone. I hate when my plans fall through!

    By the way...we all know that the pink luggage is Stephen's. Alan helped him pack it! :)
