  1. I’m so excited for you guys and can’t wait to follow your journey! You will be in China on almost the exact same dates we were there almost 9 years ago when we went to adopt Kaylee. My advice is to document via journals and pictures as much as you can. You will find that you will be in such a fog from excitement and exhaustion that you won’t remember very much and will be very glad to look back through your pictures and journals. It has become a family tradition for us to go back and read our journal and pictures on “Gotcha Days”. You will all be in our prayers and feel free to call or text if you need anything.
