We are going to China!!!!

While that's pretty exciting...I love seeing other is nothing compared to finally getting to meet our precious little boys.  I cannot even begin to articulate...what my heart is feeling.

Our consulate appointment is November 20.  We fly out of Seattle October 31 (those of you that were praying for October travel...we got it! ;) and fly home November 22.  Mid morning...Thanksgiving very fitting!

We fly Seattle - Shanghai.

We are several days early (the only way we could get affordable tickets) so we may spend a night or two in Shanghai before taking the train to Jiangsu province where Taizi is.

We fly from there to Guangzhou a week later and gotcha day for Zihao is November 12.

We fly home from Guangzhou November 22.

I'm still shaking.

Totally shaking.


  1. This is SO amazing! Oh I'm praying with you... for your travels.. expenses... your kids' hearts - those waiting in WA for you to return, those traveling with you and those you are meeting for the FIRST time!! Unbelievable. God has brought you this far - He will supply! A verse I read earlier today and thought of you:
    He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.
    Is 33:6 (NIV)
    NET says that "He is your constant source of stability." He is with you and your family - every step of the way!
    Love you! So excited for you all :) :) :)
