Leaving Thursday!

It is hard to believe that we are just about 29 hours from travel!  Our first flight leaves Birmingham at 5:30 AM Thursday morning!  We will be traveling approximately 27 hours, so please keep us in your prayers!

Our first Gotcha Day will be Monday the 13th in Hangzhou for precious Ruthie!  We will spend a week in HZ and then travel to Nanchang for sweet Sarah Kate's Gotcha Day:  Sunday the 19th!

Unfortunately, we will be in China for 3 weeks, so we will not return until the end of May.  I plan to post here on the blog regularly, so I hope you will be able to read along and continue to pray for us!

There are so many things we have to be thankful for in this journey.  We praise the Lord for providing the funds for this adoption!  He provided all the agency fees, the out of pocket expenses, the in-country expenses, and even the sky miles to cover most of the tickets.  We are so blessed and encouraged by His faithfulness and the many who have helped along the way. 

We are also thankful to Eric's parents who will care for our 7 children that will be staying home.  What a blessing to have family that will love on your kids and stand in the gap during this endeavor!

Two of the kiddos will be traveling with us:  Benjamin and Josiah.  And it is so hard to wrap my mind around the fact that 4 kiddos will be traveling back home with us! 

Stay tuned!
