Our Gotcha Day Will Be.....

Just got off the phone with our agency. We will be flying into Hong Kong Feb. 28th at 10:50 pm spend the night there in a hotel. The next day March 1st we will be taking the only flight from HK to Changsha around noon and getting in around 1:30. We will literally have no time to go to the hotel! Our Gotcha Day is March 1st!! I can't believe it ..... We are so excited and nervous at the same time. Basically I think we will be up all night in HK preparing for it. It means we might have to do some rearranging of things in our carry on bags to have items at hand we might need when we meet our SON!! That feels so right to say...

How do I explain what I am feeling right now? ELATED, EXCITED and so ready for this new adventure to start!



I need to keep calm. The thought of a cupcake right now just doesn't sound so good on my nervous tummy!!




This is the Zhuzhou SWI . Jon Jon was found at the front gate..... My heart just breaks for his family. It must have been such a tough decision for them. They had him until he was 6 months old. I pray for them nightly that they will know that he is going to a good family that will and already does love him so much!



Look at those expressive eyes and little furrowing eyebrows. I am so in love with this adorable boy!! Got to go make our seat reservations on Korean Air!

Oh Jody~ I can feel your joy, your excitement...your BUTTERFLIES!! ;) We began preparing Khloe's nursery today and put together her crib... the 'realness' of doing that flooded me with a wash of emotions that I wasn't expecting. I can't wait to be in your shoes scheduling flights and preparing for the big trip! SO, SO excited for you! :)
